Went for breakfast, specifically the pancakes. When I think pancakes, I think fluffy. The pancakes were heavy and doughy. They soaked up the butter and the syrup where you had to keep adding more just to taste the butter and syrup. Not what I was expecting. The place was busy and definitely cute.

This is the gem that every college town has. Great food at a good price that is THE place for the students to relax and get a great meal. Pancakes are a specialty and they are very good. Omelets are good too. Looking for a casual place to get great food, this is it.

Great pancakes and tasty shakshuka (Mediterranean dish). Restaurant gets busy after 9 am on Sunday. Outdoor seating is good in decent weather.

Although it is more than just breakfasts, I don't mind the weekend morning lines to get in. Because of it's center of town location, parking can be an issue unless you go to their PJ's West restaurant with great parking.

This is an old Princeton tradition, and it's just fine, but it's not cheap for pancakes, which are, on the whole, pretty ordinary. In many ways, this is a diner in an older building. It has been spruced up fairly recently, but I miss the old, much autographed and scratched tables. This will be in the same state soon, but... More

First time eating at PJs and we plan to return for more!!! Needed a table for 6 and had to wait 30 minutes but the food was worth it... Six different breakfast entries and not a single complaint... Casual fun atmosphere and children friendly...

The french fries had a thin crispy crust on top. They were actually even better than in the best French restaurant in Baltimore. The hamburger reminded me that a hamburger can actually be TASTY instead of just greasy in a diner-like setting. The pancakes looked very good.

I love their chocolate chip pancakes, they're the best! The restaurant is small, but very personable. Princeton University is right across the street from there, so sometimes it's very busy. It's always worth the wait. The staff is always pleasant.
