Best Breakfast in Meriden!

It is a casual place that has great food and a piano player on weekends. We have moved away now but... read more

We like to go there on Saturday morning because they have a Piano player. The staff is great and the food is delicious. They run specials everyday. We go there quite often with our Breakfast clubs....

We have been here numerous, numerous times and it just seems to keep on getting better with each visit. One egg,2 or three...whatever you want..with/without homefries. Pancakes, fresh fruit salad. Great people who are very considerate to their "guests"! They do make you feel like guests rather than just a client. I just wish that they were open until later... More

The food here was decent, and the atmosphere was nice. Easy to get in and out. Be warned this can be a popular place, especially on the weekend.

Following an early morning activity in Middlefield, we stopped at Huxley's for a great breakfast. Food, service, and atmosphere outstanding, as expected.

We make a point of planning our trips to and from Florida so that we can have breakfast here. Fast, real and fair price. Wish we lived nearby so we could visit more often.

Huxley's is famous for its breakfasts and quaint atmosphere. Their breakfasts are well known and enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Its a great meeting place. I'm still thinking about their poached eggs....perfection!! And the never-ending coffee pot. I live so close to Huxley's that I don't go as often as I would like too, but if you're meeting someone...
