Worth the Wait

The specialty here is obvious from the name. They have at least 15 different types of pancakes in addition to other breakfast and lunch items on the menu. They also serve dinner I believe until 9. We've been here with children to people in their 70's and to date no one has complained. That's saying... read more

Small and quaint place with a very good breakfast. Food was good but not sure I would stop back in. I think you wont be disappointed.

Right on the main drag in town this was a terrific place for lunch in Princeton. They have a wide selection of food, good service and nice outdoor seating. The salad we ordered was excellent as well as the very tasty Philly cheese sandwich.

What can get a college kid out of bed on a Sunday? The almost addicting combination of food and atmosphere, elbow to elbow with similar fanatics. Always a line-always worthwhile!

Venue is absolutely freezing, coffee didn't stay warm enough to heat you due to Arctic blast. We waited around 30 mins for our food - it was pancakes we ordered!!!! When we asked where our food was, the blank look on the waiters face was a classic, whatever! My husband had to give him a stony Scottish stare meaning, go... More

Ok, the food is not that great. No one is ever going to tell you that they had the best pancakes of their lives here. The eggs are rubbery and bland. The sausage was clearly deeply frozen before hitting my plate. But there is a feeling that you get in PJ's that is irreplicable, like you're situating yourself in the... More

Great location in the heart of Princeton. We had pancakes, an omelet and the two-fers. Lots and lots of choices for toppings for the pancakes. The brown mashed that comes with the omelet was a bit odd but was okay. Service was decent. Loved that they left a carafe of water at the table instead of having to constantly ask... More

We had a family lunch and enjoyed the large menu selection and delicious food. The food was made using fresh ingredients and was very reasonably priced.

Loved how many options of pancakes there were. I only got pancakes and eggs, but I saw other tables getting a lunch option (sandwiches and salads) and those looked delicious. We went around lunch time and although we were seated right away, it was packed and it took slightly longer than expected to get our food - our waiter was... More

My son and I went to PJ's at lunchtime. It is obviously a very popular establishment with the under-20 crowd, being across the street from Princeton University. It was crowded and very noisy, on the part of both customers and some of the servers. We had a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and a chicken wrap. Both were mediocre, especially the former:... More
