Stacks is a must-eat-at place! They have the best breakfast food--and lots of it--per plate and all of it is prepared to perfection! There are also rumors that this spot is home to many an investor-founder luncheon... and where several companies were founded, or their founders secured major funding, over a casual lunch. Swing by and see if you recognize... More

The wait can be long, and I am not sure why. There is nothing wrong with the food, but nothing notable about it either.

A very nice area restaurant in downtown Menlo Park with a nice staff. The bacon waffle that I had for breakfast was good and the syrup was really tasty! To get a good booth, visit at non-prime time hours. The tables are nice, but the booth seating is better.

Stopped here for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. Really good food, hearty portions and pretty good service. Got there just at the right time because when we left, the line was out the door! One odd thing - to use the restroom, you need a token and take an elevator up one floor. Maybe one of the worst restrooms we... More

We ate here one evening and it was very family friendly. Great service from the hostess to the waiter who took care of us. Portions were generous and the food was good. Kids enjoyed the desserts and we had great coffee.

Located downtown Menlo Park, I like stopping in here when heading out or coming into town for breakfast. The service is prompt and friendly; the place is busy but not too busy. Family friendly but also good for quick meetings. The food is made to order, I often order off the menu with no issue. My only suggestion would be... More

I went in for a quick breakfast, knowing in advance from TripAdvisor that their portions tend to be huge. Therefore I ordered one of the three "healthy" options, an EggBeater veggie omelette with tomato slices and a bagel. The odd aspect of the veggie omelette was that most of the "veggie" was celery and none of the vegetables were cooked.... More

The menu has the customary, omelettes, pancakes, waffles, different scrambles and all the sides. The lunch menus is also typical. There are no out of the ordinary innovations; consistent. Will go eat at Stacks if convenient.

Would be 5 stars, if you didn't need to get a token for the bathroom, and since it's shared by other businesses, in the area, a nasty one. Otherwise, we were seated quickly, in the upper area, which was cool, great for looking over, the whole restaurant, and people watching. A nice young lady, took my beer order. She was... More
