While visiting Palo Alto, my team and I searched for a breakfast spot. We found Stacks and could not have been happier. The portions were ample, and while the service was a bit slow the delicious food more than made up for it. The pancakes were without a doubt the absolute best I've ever had. If your'e in Menlo Park/Palo... More

We waited about 10 minutes for a table in the middle of the lunch rush, were served soon, large portions of "comfort food". Do not come here expecting gourmet offerings. Using the rest room is a real hassle, requiring a token and an elevator ride. Ambience is noisy Americana diner style. I thought the bill was high considering what we... More

We visited at about 7:30 am for a family breakfast (three generations). Be warned - Stacks is brilliant, the portions are massive and delicious! A jug of coffee arrived at the table almost as we did. Service was fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable. My wife chose a porridge dish (oatmeal on the menu) and when she remarked to the waitress that... More

My "go to" is the Mexican Omelet with egg whites. BTW, I NEVER order egg whites but this is my favorite for their preparation. Be sure to get the salsa, sour cream and avocado : ) They serve a bottomless pot of coffee and gladly substitute my starch for fruit.

First the OK bits, we were seated quickly, staff on our arrival were friendly, the location was good, other diners were enjoying themselves so a fine atmosphere, food was actually cooked and arrived in a reasonable time, portions were big, prices reasonable. The food itself was bland. Actually my omelette was tasteless, despite a decent array of vegetables. Really, without... More

This was a really nice place to grab breakfast before heading to meetings all day. Good atmosphere, great food, and amazing service. I will be back the next time I'm in Menlo Park.

I love, love, love coming here. The food is always great - service is good, ambiance is comfy! It's one of my favorite spots to go to for breakfast. Although, I've never had lunch here, I'm sure it would be good.

I've visited this restaurant many times when I'm in the Menlo Park area. I've always received excellent service, and the food has always been good. On a recent trip, I had their banana pecan Belgian waffle, and it was excellent. I added a side of bacon, and it was the thick meaty kind, not the 80% fat that some places... More

Love this place for breakfast! Their waffles always come out crisp and hot, the pancakes are to die for (especially the lumberjack), and the yogurt sundae is so good! It's a great place for catching up with friends or getting closer as a family.
