Decent Food

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...

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
