We had breakfast here two days in a row! Everything we had was so delicious. Eggs, pancakes, French toast were all delicious. The serving sizes were large too. Would definitely go back if we were in town again!

Every time I come here, there's a line out the door so be prepared to wait. The plaza is undergoing construction right now, but that doesn't stop the people from coming. Take out and dine in stand in the same line. To be fair, once you order, the food comes out pretty quickly. We usually order the breakfast burrito (yum),... More

Love Stacks. Never had the crepes, everything else is good. French toast is to die. Can't get enough.

Twice I have eaten at Stack's Pancake House in Dana Point. I personally found the kalua pig entrees to be the best for my palate. Both times I have visited, the people serving us were friendly and interested. I like the convenience of parking as well as the very casual atmoshphere.

Stacks was highly recommended to us and we are so glad we came. We all ordered something different and it was all excellent. The service was very good. You order up front and then they bring you your food. They are constantly refilling your water and coffee throughout your meal. We could tell that a lot of locals dine here... More

We visited this place on our last day of vacation. I wish we had gone there sooner. Pancakes, waffles, french toast galore! I had the Blueberry N Cream waffle and it was delicious. It's easy to drive by because of the construction going on but once you park it is an easy walk.
