Stacks Pancake House is outstanding and worth waiting in line for. Great short rib pancakes! Friendly staff and consistently excellent. Dana Point Harbor is near so it’s a great place to start your day.

I love to visit Stacks Pancake House. Their breakfast dishes are great tasting and I am allergic to wheat, so I can get gluten free pancakes, yum!

Great place for breakfast. Food is good. What to watch for. If you are eating outside as the inside is quite small your food will surely be cold before you finish it.

Delicious pancakes that melt in your mouth. Deservedly #1 in Dana Point. Great and friendly service. Good coffee. Free parking in front. Comparison Marriott charges $37 for valet and $24 each plus tax and tip each for lesser breakfast.More
