This fabulous restaurant is open 7am-2pm and is absolutely worth a visit. I was in town for 3 days, and I ate here twice. It is very clean, roomy, light, and friendly. Service is excellent. I highly recommend the egg and bacon tacos!

Good breakfast. A little pricey for bfast. But your on the Bay Area. Pancakes were great. Get the coconut macadamia pancakes. They were so good.

A few weeks ago, we had out-of-town company visiting. We were headed out the door early in the a.m. on our way to Yosemite and decided we would eat at Stacks. We were there early enough not to have to wait in line. There is plenty of seating, indoor and out. The wait-staff is very friendly, outgoing and always willing... More

Stack's is one of our favorite breakfast spots, made all the nicer by some outside seating for those who wish to bring their dogs along. Absolutely superb Corn Beef Hash, some super omelets, and very tasty waffles. We have been here many times during the week and finally decided to try it on a Sunday. Mistake. Long wait for a...

Mediocre food in a bustling atmosphere with efficient service. Had the lox benedict special, which was not very good. Muffins were soggy (even though sauce was on the side), lox was clearly pieces of formerly frozen bad quality fish, eggs OK but not hot, hash brownns tasty and interesting version but not hot and the tiny baby accompanying fruit cup...

Have been eating here as a traveler for many years, have family in the area and there's a Best Western Motel next door, great combo. Have only had breakfast here, but have many times and it's as really good. This time had chicken fried steak and eggs -wonderful. Wife, son and grandson also really enjoyed their's too. Try it !

We were sent there by our hotel looking for a great cup of coffee. The coffee is not great but the banana, macadamia and coconut pancakes were to die for! The other meals though looked amazing. I only got the 2 stack and ate for 2 days. Good cold. The logger? pancake was not great. They have very good sausages.... More

We stopped at Stacks for a plate of Pancakes and Eggs. Sorry, you can't get that here. They had a large menu with various combinations, but, when we could not find just scrambled eggs and cakes, we asked. The waitress said, no we can't do that. Had to order eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, etc. Crazy.
