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.

We came across the place to kill an hour before a meeting in Princeton. The restaurant has a dark interior with a diner like feel. The food is phenomenal and is very filling! I left half my plate as I was so full. Also the service was extremely fast and efficient.

We stopped in for a late breakfast. We loved the casual vibe of this place. It was clean and well staffed. The menu was huge and the pancakes and omlettes were delicious. We will return next time we are in town!

I usually am scared of Diners. This one looks and feels like one. But the place is super clean best food. In the heart of Princeton. Order any thing with Americano coffee and you will love it!

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 and turn the tables,...

....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
