Only place in town for me to go to breakfast whenever I am in Princeton. Great food and charm. They need to bring back the Hatfield bacon though. Disappointed that it is gone.

Unless we called the waiter over, he didn't really check on us. There were too many fruit flys inside. The lighting is very dim inside. The pancakes are great though!

Every place we tried was busy with one hour plus wait for a table. We were about to give up when we came to PJ's. A table had just opened up, so we gave it a chance. Two of us ordered a pasta dish and one ordered a bacon cheeseburger the other the waffle sandwich All were very good and... More

We stopped in because TA reviews were great and we wanted a nice place for Sunday morning breakfast. We both had omelets and they were awesome! Their potatoes are very Delish - very friendly staff as well!!!

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
