Good Savoury Crepe

I had the Crab Crepe and it was full of crab and very tasty, it came with hash brown and bagel and was good value for money. The setting was clean and well presented and the service was of a high quality. All-in-all I was a satisfied customer :-)

We ate here for breakfast on a beautiful Sunday morning in Menlo Park; because of how busy it was we gladly sat outside. The food was a solid 'barely average'. The pancakes weren't even great. The cleanliness outside was poor. Because of one bad experience, on 2 easy to do right breakfast entrees, we sadly have no intention of returning... More

Our first thought when we go out to breakfast with family or friends - good scrambles and omlettes. It Gets crowded on Sat & Sun mornings.

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.
