Stacks Pancake house is a little locally owned restaurant- many good items to select for breakfast. Service was quick- prices were low and the food was excellent. Not a very large place but does have outdoor seating.

Read other rave reviews about this breakfast place on TripAdvisor and had to see if it lives up to all the hype. DEFINITELY! We weren't sure since you have to first stand in line to place your order, then sit down. I ordered the greek omelette (spinach, mush, tomato, and feta. I added ham.) and chose pancakes as my side...

Wonderful breakfast selections and friendly service. My wife had the California omelette (recommended by the waitress) and I had the blueberry pancakes with bacon. I love pancakes, but even I couldn't finish the large stack of buttermilk and blueberry heaven that landed on our table. The omelette was excellent - but if you order one, make sure to get a...

Pretty good breakfast, but small place, mostly outside dining, off noisy PCH. Ordered combination breakfast, blueberry pancakes, bacon, coffee with boysenberry syrup. Boysenberry syrup tasted watery, not like true Marionberry syrup or Boysenberry syrup in Oregon, but again it's not Elmers

Ever had a captain crunch pancake? Peanut butter? They have so many flavors to choose from. Construction in the area made it really hard to find so we parked & walked to find it.

If you like pancakes and waffles this is one of the best places in Laguna Dana Point area. It's so good you'll have to wait about 10-15 minutes as there are usually likes to place your order. Eat in or out, shares space next to Chronic Tacos, also very good.

This place we had a huge menu like you would expect in a diner. The food was good though I couldn't finish it all. I got an omelet with a side of hash browns and definitely enjoyed it.

Great pancakes...have to get adjusted to the cafeteria line style ordering. Service was very efficient once we were seated. Pancakes were great and fluffy...eggs and meat were marginal. Great location, worth the wait!

Great food but they need a bigger location. You stand in line to order at a counter. (We thought it was a sit down restaurant). After ordering, the very small space they have was filled, so we had to sit next door in an empty store space where they have some tables set up. Kind of weird with air conditioning... More
