The pancakes were good, not great. Certainly better than IHOP, but when you pay $20 per person for pancakes bacon and coffee (outrageous) shouldn't the top pancake be right side up? Not looking for astounding presentation, but how about plating correctly. Expecially when you are charging a premium.

We had breakfast with our nephew, a Princeton student. The food was good and the wait staff handled all allergy issues without a problem. The restaurant is busy so you may have to wait but it is worth it.

I was visiting Princeton with my Son who recommended that we stop by in for breakfast at this institution formatting in this quaint town. Lines can be long, but we wandered in around 10 and walked straight to a table. I had a cup of English Breakfast tea within minutes and sat back to study the wide and deep menu.... More

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.
