Always saw long lines. One rainy morning no line so we stopped. Wonderful. Recommend the Kalua pork.

I always saw a line out the front door when driving by on the weekends, so I finally met a friend here for breakfast. They have many types of pancakes, banana, blueberry, chocolate chip, macadamia nut, etc. I like the scramble which has fried potatoes and two pancakes, which I substitute in flavored pancakes. They also have crepes, french toast,... More

My wife and I had breakfast here on Oct. 1st, 2016. I found it on TripAdvisor. Small place in a shopping center. You stand in line to make your selections and they find you a seat. The line can reach out the door and it moves at a slow rate of speed. There seems to be a mix of couples... More

Loved this place. Wish they had more comfortable chairs to sit on but I guess they don't want folks to be too comfortable....they place is busy with a high turnover. Loved their homemade corn beef hash...wished they would bring that back.

Portions are large, lot's of options to try for breakfast or lunch and the lines aren't too bad on weekdays. Great owners, who try hard to make every customer leave satisfied.

Stacks has a few locations and each one never disappoints. This one is set up a bit differently where you order your food first and they bring it to your table, which they offer outdoor tables overlooking Marquerite. The food is excellent, the staff is always nice, and they serve very good coffee. I highly recommend the captain crunch covered... More

Okay, you need to be hungry...really hungry...to order a full stack package breakfast. Pancakes are fluffy, plate sized, ad delicious. This isn't the cheapest place to get pancakes, but the quality is excellent and you won't be disappointed. I particularly like the variety of syrups (coconut is my favorite)...crowded in the morning (duh), but worth the wait I think.

We went for a late breakfast early lunch....Crowded but not crazy on a Wednesday. The food was great - the Greek omelet, the California omelet and the chicken salad... We were all pleased with our meals and had fun sharing the crispy home fried potatoes and the pancakes. Generous portions! You order at the counter and then they bring it... More
