The food is great the service is ok but when you go to Huxley's you want to be able to sit and spend time and talk to your friends you don't want to feel rushed out

Huxley's Bookmark Café has a variety of choices- all of them good. Service is friendly, the food is good and the prices are very reasonable. Would recommend highly for anyone, especially if you need to grab a quick lunch or take out during the work day.

Great food and always great service. The piano player is always nice to listen too. He plays mt generation of what is now classic rock. Only complaint is they should offer real maple syprup. If it costs more,so be it

We passed this place by at first since the line for seating seemed to be practically out the door, but after bad luck elsewhere, we came back. The food was very good & our server was very nice. I thought their omelettes were cooked particularly well. The wait was a while, but the line for seating moved along pretty steadily.... More

Yes it's pleasantly noisy. If you want quiet it's not the right place. But the food was great, the prices reasonable, and the service prompt and pleasing.

A very diverse menu and the food is very creative. A lot of the choices are out of the box and wonderful. The food was very fresh and flavorful.
