PJs is a local icon on Nassau Street, very popular with students and younger folks, and young families who want to treat the kids to a sugar high for breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, etc. are on the menu together with other breakfast fare. They probably do hamburgers and sandwiches as well, although I have no experience with them. I went there... More

We had lunch there today. We had to queue (join a line) outside - which has to be a good sign. There were seven of us but we were quickly seated. The atmosphere was wonderful, the service was outstanding and the food was excellent. Thoroughly recommended.

The pancakes are wonderful and the service is very good. If you are in the mood for pancakes, it's very hard to beat.

they have two locations that I know of. The one on Nassau street across from the university is the old one that has been there for decades. The tables have carvings left behind by PU students or local teeagers. The pancakes is their signiture dish. On any weekend mornings, they have lines going around the block waiting to get in...

Thank goodness when we went the weather was wonderful so we didn't mind standing in line for 1/2 hour. When we got in I didn't realize how tight and small the restaurant was. Reminded me of restaurants in NY City. After four of us were squeezed into a booth, our server came by relatively fast with water and took our... More

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
