P.J.’s Diner

P.J.’s Diner is opening this Wednesday (March 15) in the Brookdale Plaza on Chemong Road.

P.J.’s is already an established name in Peterborough, with two other locations on Sherbooke Street and Highway 7 East. Owner Paul McDonald has completely gutted the space, located in the former Starlight Dining location, finishing it in the chain’s trademark black-and-white checkerboard style.

PJ’s is a traditional ’50s-style diner, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Stop in or visit them on Facebook.
