PJ's has great outdoor seating letting you take in the sights of the town and university, as well as GREAT people watching. The service was prompt and efficient, food was great. The perfect spot to take a rest and relax with some good food.

We stopped here for dinner after touring Princeton. We choose to have dinner entrees and were a bit disappointed. We will be back and next time it's pancakes or nothing...though the passing hamburgers did look good.

PJ's is in the heart of Princeton surrounded by the school and the vibrant downtown area. This spot is a small, homey diner. Breakfast food served round the clock. Lunch and dinner items also on the menu. My son had pancakes and an order of wings. He very much enjoyed them. I had the La Pera salad which I was... More

Went to PJ's in West Windsor to see who would serve pancakes and pasta as menu partners. The omelet I had was fantastic and the pancakes were possibly the best I have had in my 50+ years. As we were leaving my wife and I wondered aloud was it good enough to drive all the way from Connecticut to eat!... More

This place is directly across the street from the Princeton campus. On an given weekend, they are the place with a line waiting outside to be seated. We waited our turn and were seated (packed) into a booth in the back. It was very CLOSE quarters, but the food was excellent. There is a pancake for every taste or you... More

Very popular Pancake house locted in the city center. Went on Sunday morning and had to queue for about 20 minutes outside the resturant. They have a few booths and a long community table. The place is extremely busy and packed. The service was quick and the food was good.

My wife and I have been here several times before (more than 10 years ago) and had always had good pancakes. We decided to try it again as we had a morning free in the Princeton area. The good news is that the restaurant was very clean and had a pleasant atmosphere and we were seated promptly (not bad for... More

In reading the reviews I was worried about this restaurant but it was great. Everyone in our group loved their meal. The name says Pancake House and while they do offer pancakes and breakfast food all day, they also offer excellent Italian food, salads and sandwiches. Generous portions, bring your appetite. Served pesto with the bread, yum. Very good service.... More

My husband and I went to PJ's Pancake House for a late breakfast on a cold, rainy day. It took a while to get a table but the food was exactly what we wanted... rich and tasty comfort food! We ordered pancakes with eggs, bacon and sausage and we both really enjoyed it. The food is very heavy though so... More
