Damn good pancakes

Stopped here on a Wednesday night and bellied up to the counter. The sign outside said pancakes around the clock so I had to give it a try. Darn glad I did. 3 good size pancake. Fluffy, moist and oh so tasty. My first time here so I asked for a recommendation and advised to go for the blueberry... read more

We came here for breakfast and found the food to be ok. Teresas cafe has much better food. Service here was also just okay.

Pretty typical college town breakfast joint. Long wait; average breakfast menu and food. Didn't have pancakes -- it was 95 degrees at 10:00 am and I just couldn't do it. Learning now from other TA reviews that pancakes are their specialty, so maybe I would have been more impressed with the place had I tried them. I feel like this... More

The long lines outside on weekend mornings even in the dead of winter should be a hint of how good this place is. While its creative pancakes are incredible, what surprised us one night when we decided to have dinner here. We discovered this is a great restaurant any time of day. It does not take a Princeton grad to... More

We were a party of 5 on the Friday morning of the 4th of July weekend. The restaurant was busy. We were expected to cram into a booth for 4 people (no chair allowed at the end of the table) which was really quite ridiculous. A larger booth opened up and with the encouragement of our waiter (who looked astonished... More

We had to wait a little bit for a table, but the food was yummy and the service was very good. I wasn't the biggest fan on the hash browns, but I loved the ability to choose three different pancake flavors. The s'mores pancake was amazing!

Second time here and we will come back every time we visit. Worth the wait. Good all American breakfast. Comes quick and served hot. Pancakes are amazing and you can get whatever you want. The eggs Benedict was cooked to perfection. The bacon was crisp like my daughter likes and the coffee was good and hot! It's a bit crowded... More

My son and I were visiting Princeton University and this place was recommended by a friend from Jersey. It did not disappoint! Breakfast all day was the hook that led us to check it out. We both ordered the salmon omelette with pancakes - my son buttermilk and me buckwheat. Wow! Taste was incredible. Portions are generous. Prices are competitive.... More

The location of PJ's can't be beat - located on the very lively Nassau Street, this is a destination that enables you to eat in the same general area that you will seek later entertainment. The room is very small - I would say it cannot safely house more than about 60 customers which can lead to quite a line.... More

I was in heaven! This perfect stack of large chocolate chip pancakes arrived in front of me and I was in disbelief! I could eat them! Gluten Free and absolute perfection! I hadn't had pancakes in years but I had been told this was going to be a huge treat and they were right! Best recommendation ever! Any flavor you... More
