Best breakfast

The only problem with this place is you always have to wait. But they serve the best breakfast in town. The omelettes are great and the salmon and bagels are my favorite. Pancakes are good too. Something for everyone.

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.

The place is too crowded and the staff rush you out after a long wait to get in. For a wait so long, a person should be allowed to sit down and enjoy their meal without being pressured to eat fast and leave.

Stopped for breakfast. It was crazy busy. The staff was very pleasant. My wife loved her coconut pancakes and her bacon was tasty. My corned beef hash however was not good. I could not tell that it was corned beef - very bland, tasteless. The potatoes in the hash tasted like fake potatoes. I asked for poached eggs and they... More

A little pricey, if you are used to paying $10 or so for breakfast. It usually costs about $20 or so to get out the door. But the food is excellent, the servers are attentive and, it is in Silicon Valley. I would go here again if I was ever in Redwood City again.

This is the best place to have breakfast on the Peninsula....JMHO. Not only is the food excellent, it's enough to last you until dinner! I like this restaurant because it has a few items on the menu that I can't find elsewhere. They have a crepe on the menu that is filled with fresh fruit and yogurt, a healthy breakfast... More

Excellent food and qiuiet - a nice place for a business meeting. I enjoyed a great breakfast of eggs and bacon both done to a "T" It is so easy to over cook sunnyside up eggs and over or under cook bacon...Not a problem here

I am not so impressed with the food here. It seems that Stacks in Menlo Park offers a more satisfying experience than its counterpart in Redwood City. Some dishes I tried felt anorexic. They got changed yes but the succeeding meal wasn't that good either. Unlimited coffee but the coffee was not memorable.
