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... read 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

We went to Princeton to find a place to eat. We came across this place PJ's pancake house. You can sit inside or outside. We choose to sit outside. The service and food was very good. I really enjoyed this place. The prices were average but you really get a lot of food. I would recommend this place for a... More

OK, let's start out by emphasizing that this is a Pancake House. So, to pull 5 stars here you'd need to do something extraordinary with those pancakes, something truly outrageous (but not so much so to get you incarcerated). What PJ's does is much more simple - they make great pancakes, and a fine cup of Joe in an atmosphere... More

Tiny place, always crowded, even during winter people are lining up outside in the bitterly cold and patiently waiting....why? because pancakes there are simply the best! I tried them all, all great, prices are more than reasonable and staff very friendly. So if you come to town simply join the line and enjoy the chatting while you wait!

We had a comfortable quiet booth towards the back with pleasant waiters. Coffee could be a little stronger. Pancakes were EXCELLENT. A very good choice for breakfast.

The food is absolutely delicious but if your timing is bad and a large group gets there before you you could have a significant wait. I am told they are pretty quick but 2 very large groups got there before us and it was a long wait and the management did nothing to compensate us for the wait. They apologized... More

Go for the pancakes. Available all day. That is their specialty. Lots of variety in the pancakes offered. Reasonable prices. $10 for three large pancakes. Get the plate of 3, not 5. 3 pancakes were more than enough. Nothing special, but would go back.
