Went here for breakfast with my son and hubby based on the great reviews and proximity to where we were staying. The place was pretty full but we were seated immediately. We had the bacon scram, French toast and breakfast sandwich. All were really good but not extraordinary. My son had to wait then ask for syrup so he could... More

Moved to Hayes Valley, Stacks is one of the places your neighbours will recommend first - especially if you search for a great place for breakfast. By now, I go there at least once per month. Why? a) Great selection of food from low carb to heavy carb - covering all classics of an American breakfast ;-) b) Impressive service:... More

Delicious cooked breakfasts here. Huevos Rancheros and scrambled eggs with avocado and bacon were big portions and delicious. Did not try the pancakes....they looked amazing. Next time. It's a great place to take the familly, babies, kids, or just big groups of friends. Our waiter Norberto was wonderful ; warm, friendly and efficient.

Stack's is a great place to eat. Located in Hays Valley, they have great food, great service and outside seating which allows you to people watch. Cute neighborhood.

This restaurant was recommended by a tour company while we were waiting to leave. Their servings are plentiful and delicious. Had my very first mimosa there. Make sure to have a hearty appetite.

Used Siri to find somewhere close to the airport to get coffee and it suggested Stacks. We wanted coffee and maybe a croissant so gave it a go, best we could get was bagel. The waitress wasn't rude was was not the most friendly and made us feel like we were wasting her time. The cappuccino was so comical we... More

Excellent Hayes Valley spot for breakfast. We had a variety of dishes, and they were all excellent. The blueberry pancakes and bacon were especially good. When we first arrived, it was not too busy, but our daughter wasn't there yet. The host said to let him know when she got there and he would seat us. By the time she... More

This place is a simple well-oiled machine. Sit you down, get you a pot of coffee for your table - and supply you with a huge menu of mediocre options. The portions are too large, and every egg dish comes with hash browns and a pre-buttered bagel (would everyone really choose a bagel as their first option?). What you are... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
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 respite.
