We loved the Hayes Valley area. It reminded us of neighborhoods at home in Portland. Lots of good restaurants/shops and very walkable. The food at Stacks didn't measure up to what we expect back home. We went for brunch on a Tuesday, and we're expecting...More

This place is really cozy, and has nice interior! Lots of flowers, and pretty paintings. The plates are incredibly big (maybe it's just USA style). I got the chicken sandwich, which were a bit boring, but others i was with were very satisfied. Good experience...More

I consider myself to be a Reuben connoisseur, and Stacks' Reuben is hands-down the BEST Reuben sandwich I've ever eaten - total taste bud orgasm (can I say that on here?) If you like Reuben sandwiches, you have to try this place!!

The blueberry wheat germ pancakes are absolute heaven. Could not ask for them to be more delicious. Busy place yet comfortable and friendly. Great SF breakfast. Gets omelet delicious and well seasoned. Cannot recommend more highly.

This is a must stop for breakfast when in town. Definitely one of the fanciest breakfast restaurant you can eat at. A bit pricey but worth it! Parking can be bad so go with time or catch a ride.

Had to go downtown to return an item, asked about a good breakfast spot, I was told Stacks' was a favorite. Definitely a favorite of mine now!! 🍳 I had the bacon, spinach, and cheese scramble, it was awesome. Lots of ingredients and such flavor,...More

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish
