If you've visited any of the Hawaiian Islands and love Loco Moco, get to Stacks. Great pancakes too.

It was so GOOD we had to come back twice before heading back home. The first day I had the California Omelette- you get to choose a side and I picked pancakes. You get SO much food and it was all DELICIOUS! My husband had the Cap'n Mac French Toast and he loved it. As did I because I HAD... More

Decent food at a decent price. Try the gluten free waffle or pancakes with the coconut syrup and berry syrup. The Captain Crunch French toast is great.

They have very good banana pancakes. I also got a side of bacon, but was very average. I would definitely go back to try something else.

We went there because it got great reviews, and for the most part, the reviews were correct. The place is tiny, and you have to order at the counter and they deliver your food to your table. There were maybe ten tables inside, and some outside. Luckily, we arrived very early and managed to snag a table before it got... More

We went for brunch on a Friday. There was plenty of seating and no wait. The food was great. This was the number one rated restaurant on the Dana Point list, and I totally agree. The captain crunch French toast and coconut syrup was amazing.

We stopped in for lunch and we both had the hamburger & fries, very large burger with caramelized onions, brioche bun! Lots of great options on the menu, looking forward to going back for breakfast!

I got here earlier to avoid the lines everyone was talking about. Food was ok. Nothing really stood out. I ordered a Denver omelet, bacon and pancakes.

Found Stacks Pancake House while vacationing at Capistrano Beach. It became our go-to spot for breakfast. Excellent choices, delicious pancakes, always satisfying. All selections that we tried were excellent. Friendly staff. When in Dana Point or Capistrano, try Stacks for a delicious and reasonably priced breakfast.

If you are not a local & have never been to STACKS Pancake House and expect to be served you are in for a surprise. It's run like a fast food restaurant yet the food is much better. We were visiting CA from the East Coast expected a relaxing breakfast. Instead we got there that chilly morning & stood in... More
