The much-anticipated pancake house, Stacks Pancake House & Café, opened its doors on December 14th in Hoboken on trendy Washington Street. Filling a void of offering pancakes for dinner, as well as other reasonably-priced American comfort cuisine, Stacks is bringing families, Hoboken professionals and the late-night bite crowd together to enjoy delicious food in an upscale, trendy atmosphere. Stacks, which will be open until 4 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, serves 22 different varieties of pancakes, as well as omelettes, salads, sandwiches and burgers, plus milkshakes, floats and coffee drinks.
Since it’s opening, diners have been flocking to the newbie restaurant to try their signature dishes such as a Mama’s family-size pancake, a 16-inch pancake that serves a family of four or the pancakes wraps – appropriately named after Hoboken streets such as Hudson, Observer, Garden, Bloomfield and Washington — which are oversized pancakes filled with your choice of the standard breakfast fare: eggs, taylor ham, sausages, cheese and vegetables, among others. For the super sweet tooth, the Oreo Cookie pancakes are a menu standout and are served with Oreo cookies mixed into the batter, as well as crumbled on top.
Other popular dishes include the Belgian waffles and French toast, double-decker deli sandwiches, grill specialties such as a Philly cheese steak, Stack’s burgers and super salads. Lighter alternatives are available and include whole grain and wheat pancakes and egg white omelettes. On the children’s menu you will find pancakes (that come in a variety of shapes: truck, airplane, flower, Mickey Mouse and a ghost), French toast and waffles, hamburgers and chicken fingers.
