Recs for Princeton, NJ

Will be in Princeton in mid September for a weekend. Would like some casual recommendations for breakfast and dinner. Can't miss, regional food preferred. We are visiting from Toronto, Canada. Not sure what our transportation options will be, so please give recs in Princeton, not neighboring towns.

    1. In town:

      Breakfast - PJ's Pancake House on Nassau St (Princeton's main street). Local institution. Get there early as a line forms out the door. Alternative place is the Carousel Restaurant futher down Nassau St & near CVS.

      Dinner - Blue Point Grill on Nassau St. Absolute freshest fish, simply prepared. Very popular, yet consistantly very good. BYOB & there's wine shops nearby.

      Also, do a search on this board for "Princeton Gems" - recent post lists many other option for you.

      1. The Bent Spoon is some of the best ice cream in the world. It's on Palmer Square in downtown Princeton. They use lots of local ingredients. Conte's is good, reliable thin crust pizza, very casual place. Teresa Caffe is also a good casual place.
