You can't go wrong with breakfast here

If you want to beat the line, go early before the students wake up. Our family of 6 had a perfect table in the way back. Mix of our breakfast choices - eggs benedict, chocolate chip pancakes, and I had to do crepes with nutella and strawberry/bananas. All very good. They get the orders out fast... read more

....made my first visit to Pj's this past week. We were seated promptly (late morning weekday ...so there was only a small crowd) ...and our waiter immediately tended to our beverage orders. The menu is pretty varied and ....in my opinion ...for a pancake house...is fairly extensive. I opted for an eggs and pancakes breakfast ...and my friend chose Belgian... More

This was our first time to Princeton so we checked TripAdvisor for a good, local breakfast spot. It seemed like all visitors pointed to PJ's. We had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a seat at the counter but it was definitely worth it. Despite the place being packed, the service was good and the food was prompt. My only... More

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.
