A friend and I had breakfast here last week and we were both impressed. The menu is large with great selections. I had sausage & biscuits and I was very pleased. It was great and the portion was large. The service was very good as well.

Within minutes of being greeted a pot of coffee is put on your table, it has to be a good place. And unlike so many restaurants today, this was really great coffee and that comes from a genuine coffee snob. An extensive menu, prompt service by a friendly wait staff, GREAT food, GREAT coffee (did I mention this before?)...all in... More

Stacks is what Denny's should strive to be. Fresh, wholesome food, endless coffee and satisfying portions. The waitstaff is excellent!

Really fun lively place. Great waitstaff and great food! The line usually moves really fast for as many people eat here. Local favorite of ours!

Consistently good. We love to go to breakfast there! So much to choose from and the service is extremely good. The staff is quick and friendly. I love their pancakes and they will add extra goodies if you ask. Can't say anything bad about them.

In the old days this would be a pancake house. Today it exists someplace between the pancake houses of yesterday and the stuffy yuppiefied eateries in Palo Alto. Very good food, very good coffee, very good service, reasonable prices.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the LiA Hotel in San Carlos, and Stacks was located conveniently down the street. Excellent service, and quick! I had the huevos rancheros and he had eggs Benedict. We shared blueberry pancakes too and all were stellar! They leave a carafe of coffee on the table, huge plus!

We stayed at the Best Western next door, and enjoyed healthy and not so healthy food at Stacks. The salads are huge and delicious, and the pancakes are sinful! The servers are efficient and personable, and the patrons are a happy mix of families, friends, singles, and groups. YUM.

Given the lines around the block on weekend mornings, I'm sure they must deal occasionally with grumpy folks; but these people are super heroes of service! I have never felt rushed, and the food is always both abundant and delicious. We almost always have to take some home because they are very generous with everything.

Thank Beth I
