The menu options offer a great selection for breakfast (lunch is offered here, but we were here for breakfast). They offer a nice selection of various pancake options and a "sampler plate" which includes 3 choices. My husband and I both chose three and each one was a delicious option.

I have eaten here a few times. The food is excellent and inexpensive. Service is fine. Try eating outdoors on the sidewalk, which is across the street from Princeton University.

I was really excited to try the pancakes here but was disappointed to find that they tasted like Aunt Jemima Complete Just Add Water Pancake Mix. The place is small inside, breakfast can be crowded. Another weird thing was that they had bagels on the menu, but it was bagels with other toppings besides cream cheese. When we asked for... More

Went to PJ's for breakfast. A lively place and a well-known Princeton establishment. The pancakes are pretty good - great selection - and very good value for money.

Fresh food for a healthy eater and comfort food do the not-so-healthy eater! Cozy place. We will be regulars.

It was my first time in Princeton with some friends and I wanted to find a fun place for us to stop and grab some breakfast. I went on a Saturday around 11am-ish and there was a short line (about 3-4 parties) in front of us. Despite the line, we only waited for about 12 minutes before we were seated.... More

It's the most important meal of the day and no matter what you have at PJs it's always amazing. I've had omelets, pancakes and French toast (not all at the same time) and they have all been perfect. The hash with the omelets is awesome the right balance of spice and savory. My go to diner food is French toast,... More

Me and my coworkers go here for lunch often. As you know having a hour for lunch sometimes cuts time close when traveling to a place and then having to order food and wait for it to be prepared. PJs has never let us down. Service is on point with enough time to sit and enjoy our delicious breakfast for... More

We've been here twice now. Nothing great. Not as nice as all the reviews say. Just a basic breakfast without anything special.
