Everything was excellent. Super fast. I had huevos rancheros and French roast. I would eat there everyday if I could.

Pancakes were really good, service was pleasant and efficient. Dining area was small so be prepared to wait a little time for a table or get there early.

I wasn't sure what I walking into as the place is small and looks like a fast food restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised as the food was amazing!! But only go if you don't care about calories.

This is my go to for bringing out of state friends. Best CapnMac French toast around. If you like Captain Crunch & macadamia nuts you'll be in heaven! Try it with an egg on the side so you don't go into a sugar coma.

Stacks is a tiny place in the middle of a small strip of shops on PCH. Look for the parking atop the strip of shops on your left as you go north on PCH. Park near the stairway in the middle of the lot, and when you descend the steps, you will be nearly at the door. Signs warn you... More

We walked in and were not greeted. The lady taking our order was hard to understand and not helpful AT ALL.... gluten free pancakes were good but expensive and not worth the price. Restaurant is VERY small and crowded. When my husband went to get a refill of coffee they didn't acknowledge him, he had to ask for help.

Order at the counter and pray for a seat. Tinny music and beach bums. But the pancakes and waffles were fabulous. Berries were fresh and portions are large.

I stood in line for 40 minutes. They were VERY slow in taking orders - only 10 people in front of me. Ordered the pork chop with eggs and pancakes, which was on their specials board. The pork chop was decent, the 3 eggs (of which I very specifically asked for only one and was assured that there would be... More
