Quaint, write on the tables. But go for the breakfasts. Great pancakes but lots note than that. Sit family style at the table with others. Large servings make you full. Great spot.

We've been here a few times. We liked it the first time - the kids loved peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes. But we have been increasingly disappointed since the first visit. Our daughter was the last hold out and kept wanting to give it one more try. After the recent visit, even she is done and says she never wants... More

Good (not great) pancakes, great atmosphere, perfect location. A landmark. We sat outside and had a lovely breakfast.

This place is clearly resting on its laurels. Admittedly, the food is good, but IHOP can produce equally good pancakes with friendlier service. Our waiter wasn't friendly nor helpful. He seemed quite put off when he stopped by our table, asked for our order, and we informed him we hadn't figured out our order yet. It was downhill from there.... More

Although the lines outside this establishment are long, that is more a testament to the limited number of breakfast options in Princeton than to the quality of the food. We visited on two separate occasions and both times found it less than impressive. On our last weekend visit, we ended up getting a bite to eat at a deli and... More

All the students eat here, so check it out if you're coming for a visit. There's a long line in the morning, but if you're up for it — you can eat here for dinner, too!

Well, not really. I rarely eat pancakes. When I do, I HAVE TO HAVE REAL Maple syrup, otherwise I don't eat pancakes. For an extra 2 bucks and change I got my maple syrup! If you are going to eat just plain pancakes then go to IHOP. Here, you need to order the sampler, three large fluffy pancakes made in... More

Been to Princeton a ton of times, but never went to PJ's, so I decided to give it a try. There is usually a line in front, but thankfully there was not one when I went because the meal I had wasn't worth it. The inside of PJ's is kind of small, so now I understand why there is always... More

Long line but it moves quickly. Fast and great service. Great food, NOT JUST PANCAKES. **After breakfast, take a walk around the campus, it's beautiful.**
