All three of us enjoyed our breakfast here- very good pancakes. Waiting in line for 15 min was well worth it. Reasonable price and great service.

Kids wanted to have some traditional pancakes so we ended up in PJ's. They portion size is pretty good and the pancakes were really well made and fluffy. Loved it !

The lines might be long but the wait gets you into one of Princeton's classic venues. It's a bit of a time warp with some of today. Just make sure you bring your appetite. Casual and rather inexpensive. A real classic!

Had a really delicious breakfast as snowstorm was coming in. French toast was so fluffy and the side of bacon was huge! Good service too, glad we came. Thought prices were great for portion size too.
