Stacks Pancake House and Café offers early-rising breakfasteers and midday-rising lunchatoons a menu brimming with fluffy pancakes, double-decker sandwiches, and piping-hot cups of Joe. But Stacks’ dishes aren’t the usual diner mess; they are elegantly presented and often overflowing with fresh fruit. Peruse the list of more than 20 pancakes varieties and order a stack of Strawberry Fields (infused with farm fresh strawberries, $7.25) or Addiction (banana-mixed pancakes topped with melty chocolate chips, $7.25), or opt for oversized pancake wraps, which are named after Hoboken streets, such as the Hudson filled with scrambled eggs with home fries, melted cheddar, bacon, and salsa ($7.95). Those hankering for protein can chomp a flavorful omelette, such as the tomato-infused American ($6.95), paired with breakfast all-stars crispy bacon and toast. Stacks' talented team of batter-flippers also serves an array of hearty sandwiches, including corned beef on rye ($6.95) and Philly cheesesteaks ($7.25). Stacks' dining room, which has bare brick walls and high ceilings, makes diners feel at home with a blend of traditional and trendy decor.
Though steak, salads, and wines share the spotlight, it's the fondue pot that transforms the dining experience at Melting Pot into an interactive one. Bubbling at the center of the table, steel cauldrons steam with cheese blends such as aged cheddar and lager beer or fontina, butterkäse, and buttermilk blue. Diners spear slices of granny smith apples, artisan breads, and veggies before dipping them into the thick, creamy cheese. Chasing a wine-and-cheese-fondue pairing with salads before the main course of chicken and steak helps turn the experience into an event. Dessert can continue the dipping feast with any of nine velvety chocolate fondues and a dunkable array of strawberries, marshmallows, or chunks of cheesecake.
