Great breakfast place. This is a great breakfast place and very comparable to Mama's in San Francisco (although Stacks has a more extensive menu). Although you will probably have to wait for a table, they provide seating so you can wait outside and take your name down so you don't have to wait in a line (like at Mama's). They also give you an approximate wait time which is usually on point so you can also walk around and look into all the stores nearby.
Not bad, not great either..

If you are from the peninsula, Stacks may be a good place to eat. Given the lack of better places I suppose it'll do. Consider this; if you took the amount of time you spent waiting for a seat you could have been in the city already. Been there a few times over the years because friends, who are from the peninsula, wanted to go there. I can't remember exactly what I had, it wasn't bad but not good enough to remember, sorry.
If you are from the city I can't recommend going out of your way to make it there. If you are in the area, sure why not, the food is good enough. You will most likely end up there because your peninsula friends who don't know any better will coerce you to meet them there.

VERY delicious!. I heard rave reviews of this place and as a big breakfast lover, I had to try it out myself. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was quite busy but the wait was only 30 minutes. It's in a good location cause during your waiting time you can go shopping in the stores nearby. They even have self served coffee set outside for people waiting. The waffles were to die for! So delicious and really good price, similar to IHOP prices but the food at Stacks are so much better and a lot fresher esp their fruits! After eating, I realized why there was a wait because everyone wants to indulge and savor their delicious food. Must try!! So worth the wait!
Worth The Wait.
Stacks serves one of the best breakfast's in the bay area. So far everything I have eaten here is delicious. I am not a coffee drinker and even the coffee here was amazing.
On the weekends there is always a wait of 30 minutes to an hour but it is definitely worth the wait. The staff is friendly and quite fast when it comes to turning tables around. As soon as a group leaves they have that table ready for another group. So the only reason you are waiting is because everyone is busy enjoying their great meals.
