Being gluten free is hard for a pancake lover...but Stacks rules!! Their plain gluten free pancakes are good...but I got creative after that and added in banana and chocolate chip - which are amazing. Now, it's my go-to place when I have a pancake craving and they don't disappoint!

I rarely eat breakfast out, so when I do, I expect something special. Both times I've been to Stacks I've been impressed with both the service and the quality of the food. I've worked as a cook in over a half-dozen restaurants and enjoy cooking as a hobby, so I'm not easily impressed. I've had an omelet, eggs Benedict, and... More

This is a great local joint in Dana Point to get breakfast. A lot of the menu items have a great island style twist. I love the captain crunch French toast made with Hawaiian bread!

Small place, you order your food at the counter and go find a table outside till your number is called. Very tasty pancakes, and price is spot on for Dana Point fare. I was surprised no indoor seating but the outside is fine under the umbrella. If you can't find parking out front on PCH Hwy, turn into the upstairs... More

The food was delicious, the locations that I have tried are in Dana Point and in Mission Viejo. Both locations offer delicious food and unique choices with a Hawaiian note to the pancake dishes. The Mission Viejo location gets full quickly as it is smaller than the Dana Point location but service was still pretty good. The Dana Point location... More

The building was undergoing construction but was in full swing. Lots of parking to the rear. At this restaurant you wait in line to order and take your number to the table and they will bring you your food. There was limited seating and lots of people so I thought it would be hard to find a table but they... More

When we visit Laguna, we always make sure to stop here for breakfast. Their pancakes are incredible!!! The menu has eggs, pancakes, and a whole lot of specials. I suggest coming early to get a great spot outside. There is also indoor seating. Well worth the wait!

We love a restaurant that just simply "gets it right" and Stacks was way on point! The food was EXACTLY what you would expect when you place your order. Perfectly cooked eggs, bacon and sausage. An egg white omelet that was delish and home fry potatoes to die for! Great coffee, FANTASTIC pancakes and a wonderful staff that goes out... More

Every time we travel to stay in Dana Point we have to pass by and eat in Stacks. This is a small place with the parking in the back (top). The service is very fast and the food is good, with affordable prices. One recommendation is to visit this place during weekdays, the weekend is overcrowded with some long waiting... More
