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.

Great breakfast food. Always crowded. Lines long but worth the wait. Locals college students and visitors all eat here. Breakfast is served all day. Pancakes are great but there are other items on the menu.

PJs pancake house ins a Princeton institution. They have all kinds on pancakes and breakfast. However the food is at best average and the lines can be long on the weekends. Food comes out fast and staff works hard but food is nothing to hang around for
