Hoagie Heaven is a student favorite -- PJ's Pancake House has quite good food too. If you want more formal stuff, I think it's called 'Tiger Inn' or something to that effect. It has an orange and black front exterior

for coffee try small world coffee (not starucks), lunch try tiger noodles a bit down nassau street or triumph grill on nassau street directly across from Pton. suggstions above good too.
Emmett Gowan is in photography, amazing prof. Ask about his Mt St Helen's photos.
see art museum, look in chandler green, look at the art library and think about studying in that space(!), look for Nixon's nose(?), take an Orange Key Tour, check out the gargoyles on the chapel, see the atheletic facilities, go to an evening performance at Richardson.
My D is there now; an amazing, very challenging place.

Visit the Firestone library too. And the small exhibition annex off the Firestone library has exhibitions going on all the time. The last one I saw was an exhibition of writings of the guy (whose name I forget, I am very bad with names) who was regarded as the author of the 'USSR containment' policy. Ahh..I remember, George Frost Kennan, princeton alumni.
Then there is also the museum that someone mentioned.

Winberie's in Palmer Square is a popular pub with a wide variety of good sandwiches, salads, etc. Take a walk down to Lake Carnegie and see the boathouse; idyllic. Go inside Frist, the student center, where you'll find students eating, hanging out, etc., and you'll see all the posters advertising campus events. Several hundred students gathered around the Frist TV to watch the last presidential debate; if you stick around tomorrow night, you can watch it with them, too.
The tour won't take you to Prospect Avenue, known among students as "the Street;" take a walk there to see the eating clubs.

And there is the mom-and-pop ice cream store that my son and I love on Nassau Street (best ice cream in the area) and also the greek eat-out cafe off of Nassau street on the other side of the parking lot.

So I JUST got back...and I think I'm in love
Sadly, I am in love with the most difficult school to get into!
I checked out almost everything you guys told me to! Orange Key Tour, checked out Chandler Green (beautiful), saw the gargoyles, got coffee at Small World, met with Emmett Gowan (most amazing photography professor), got dinner at "Alchemy?", got ice cream at Nassau Street, went to the Frist Center, and walked all over the campus that was teeming with people!
Overall, INCREDIBLY impressed. By far the clear and perfect fit for me.
I'm almost tempted to take a year off if I don't get in and try at it again - that is how much I loved it.

Its Chancellor Green [does no one read anymore?]
Alchemist and Barrister
Pj's pancake house
(both there over 35 years)
Nobody mentioned the Yankee Doodle Tap Room at the Nassau Inn. A step back in time at Princeton. Possibly outdated in todays populist modernist society. Still, I'd go if I were touring and had some time.
