Great place that has apparently been there for many years and is quite popular. Service was good and fast. My expectations were not high as I am not a big breakfast eater and wanted something healthy and thought I would most likely be disappointed I was so wrong! Had an omelet with feta, spinach and sundries tomatoes . It was... More

Great service, good coffee. Make sure you go there hungry. Large portions. Great with kids. Teens love it. The place is small and usually packed. Some seating outside.I know people drive hours to eat breakfast there. Famous among philly crowd.

Although there were a lot of other items that were tempting, everyone in our party had the pancakes. They were very good. I recommend the sampler so you can try a few kinds. The nice thing is that don't skimp on the ingredients. For example, there are plenty of pecans in the pecan-banana pancakes.

We were 6 people so we had a long wait for a table. Come as a pair and you get seated quickly. The food was terrific so the wait was worth it but don't come starving as we waited almost an hour outside on the street (in the same time at least 15 groups of 2s of 3s were seated)... More

If we are in the mood for pancakes for dinner; our local choice is Princeton's PJ's Pancake House. The restaurant is usually populated with Princeton students which gives it a lively environment; and if they are not there in person you can see evidence of their previous visits etched into the tables and booths. While they have an extensive menu... More

A Princeton institution, now also serving overflow crowds in West Windsor. PJ's serves large and excellent pancakes, with variety to please anyone, at all times. On weekend mornings, get there early or wait on line with everyone else. The seating is faster at other times. Very few people can finish a whole order - but it's OK to take home... More

Whenever we visit Princeton, New Jersey, our mandatory breakfast haunt has always been PJ’s Pancake House. Though located on the quieter end of Nassau Street (154) it still manages to be popular enough to warrant a short wait outside before being waved in to your table. We’ve been coming to PJ’s for well over 20 years, so joining a fast... More

This place always has a line! The breakfast selection is very good, as they offer different types of pancakes and eggs, however the inside of the restaurant is very small and cramped and if you aren't lucky enough to get a private booth, you could be seated at the long table with strangers.I personally don't like waiting in line for...
