Thank you Huxleys!

My coworkers and I were in Meriden for 2 weeks, and Huxleys quickly become a stand-out spot. We ordered take-out from them almost every day for lunch. 5 orders, perfectly done every time, and only 10-15 minute lead time. Impressive! The food is great, too - I recommend the chicken souvlaki panini!

They cook eggs to perfection. I'm very picky about my eggs. They have to be whites cooked, runny yolks, and I never knew there was a name for this, learned it here. Over Medium. And they cook them perfectly. The place is busy, but they have the waitstaff to handle it. You will wait for a table on Sunday morning,... More

Went there to Huxley's Bookmark Cafe with my boys on April 15, 2012. This place was disgusting and very gross with the food, broken National Geographic magazines, dirty books, and other rude things. I just didn't like this place at all but its junk. Food was OK, Place was Dirty, and Atmosphere was kinda weird. Won't be back at Huxley's... More

Have tried Huxley's twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Guess I thought lunch might be better that breakfast, but it was disappointing. At breakfast, the pancakes were not fully cooked, neither was the omelet. Took awhile to get the attention of the server because this place is extremely busy for breakfast. We were not impressed with the quality... More

The atmosphere is casual and friendly. The food is reasonably priced. Decent portions and quality. Great place for low key breakfast or lunch.

As a Meriden resident, we don't have that many great places to eat nevermind have a great breakfast, but Huxleys in my opinion is just that. There have great omelets/ pancakes/waffles, the portions are good, the conversation is fun and normally they have a piano player (who can play some requests) so to me, it all adds up to probably...

We went to Huxley's for breakfast Which was fabulous. There is an extensive menu for breakfast & lunch. Easily found off I 91 or The Parkway at the East Main St exit both north & south for travelers to find out what locals already know. There are books to read and at times someone is playing the piano. I strongly... More
