We were in town early and visiting the area and the campus. We had breakfast at PJ's and it was great. Had waffles with bananas, and I felt I had to take a nap afterwards from. Ring so full. The staff is definitely hustling and...More

I really enjoy PJ's. Make no mistake, there is always a wait, but as I usually go with a small group it hasn't been that bad. If you go during peak times, think weekend brunch especially Sunday, it is going to be challenging to get...More

Can I tell you the place is worthy wait. The experience of a college town. The coolness of the staff. The superlative menu choices. The over flowing food. The pancakes. The burgers. The sides all are scrumptious. Run to PJs as fast as you can...More

We have come here many times but for some reason this time wasn't as good. I decided to get something different I got scrambled eggs and two pancakes. Pancakes were ice cold, butter wouldn't even melt on them. Had to wait for our waiter to...More

My husband and I had a fantastic breakfast here with mashed home fries that were to die for! I had a fried egg sandwich that reminded me of my years living in NYC. The chocolate chip pancakes were so good. Order a half order, they're...More
