OK, what can I say, the pancakes are mediocre, but when you've been going to the place for 20 years plus, it has something special.
This place is a Princeton institution. I can still see my roommate smiling from ear to ear as he dug into a pancake stack after an all nighter. (Heck, he's a write and allowed to do that).
The pancakes are what it is all about and the service is classic New Jersey. When I took my oh so cool investor colleagues, they nearly ran out of there and headed for the nearest Starbucks. Like all NJ places, they have a certain hospitality that I've always loved. When one colleague asked for a banana, the waitress got into a car, went to the grocery store and got her a bunch of them. Now that's service.
It's a must go for any alumni :_)
