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

My girlfriend and I had breakfast here on our first day in Hilton Head. Our condo owner recommended it. Breakfast was very good. We both had omelettes and home fries. I got coffee and it was very good. I certainly recommend this place for breakfast.

We visited for brunch on a Wednesday in early November. One of us had the veggie omelet and the other the California omelet, both with the side of 3 pancakes. The pancakes were huge and could almost have been the entire meal. Neither of us finished them. They were hot off the griddle and very delicious and fairly fluffy. The... More

Visited stacks for the second time this week for breakfast. First time I had the Californian omelette. Today I tired the eggs Benedicte. Both were delicious. One of our party had The chorizo scramble which was tasty but a little heavy for breakfast. The blueberry pancakes are amazing. A short stack of three pancakes is plenty for two to share.... More

This place was a little bit hard to spot, thanks to ongoing construction, but we got there eventually. I loved that the pancakes, which are the main attraction, of course, can be your choice of a "side" when you order an omelet or other eggs. They are huge, dinner plate-size pancakes, and that "side" dish includes 3 of these monsters!... More

Be ready to wait. Worth time as the food is delicious! Pancakes are fluffy! Reminds me of Hawaii as the menu has food such as fried rice.

I love this place! Get there early because a line up forms pretty fast on the weekends. My husband and I order the same thing every time we go - Loco Moco and Huevos Rancheros. Best breakfast ever!!
