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

I have visited stacks a few times and was pleased each time. My hubby loves their French toast and huge pancakes. Everything is fresh. Their sausage links are out of this world!! I also like that they accommodate people who are trying to eat healthier. Hands down this is one of my favorite breakfast stops. On this visit i had... More

We were driving through on our way to San Diego and saw this place, so we stopped. If you're looking for a great and affordable breakfast, Stacks is a great choice. They have the best pancakes and even offer gluten-free pancakes so good that you can't tell the difference. It's nice to sit outside to have breakfast too.

Super long wait but once we ordered the food came quickly and was delicious. They accidentally put cheese in my wife's omelette and when we told them they remade it unbelievably quickly.

We were staying at the nearby Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. This place was recommended as the great place for breakfast. I can only judge from what I ordered, the whole wheat pancakes. They were ok, but on the dry side. We got there around ten in the morning. Husband ordered the Eggs Benedict. Good, but he said the Hollandaise... More

A simple setup with order counter and food delivered to table makes this an easy stop for a meal at attractive prices. Nothing fancy but clean tables and customer friendly staff make this a good choice for an easy meal. Few tables inside with most seating outside under heat lamps make it a warm weather stop. Today, with 55 degrees... More

Our first time at a Stacks Pancake House. There were 7 of us and everyone ordered something different. Thumbs up from crepes all the way to scrambled-chorizo. Line moves pretty fast. The help is very friendly and efficient. Worth a visit.
