Our family has gone to Huxley's since it opened. My parents have now retired to another community, but we always go back at least once during a visit to Meriden to have breakfast or lunch. The food and service are always good, and special requests are handled with ease. French toast, all of the egg dishes, and the weekly/daily specials... More

Meet a friend there at least once a month-- they never rush you- actually sometimes we sit and talk for over two hrs and they never rush you out.

We usually have a Sunday breakfast once a month at Huxley's. The staff is very attentive. The food is very good with many specials. Surrounded by books of many topics, it lends itself to a friendly & relaxed atmosphere. And diners get an added treat - real music - a piano man! Huxley's is not a place to miss!!

Had many a breakfasts there when visiting the Meriden area. NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. Loud diner atmosphere, but very friendly. Good food, good prices, good portions. Check out the specials when you walk in - usually interesting and tasty.

Huxley's is a landmark in Meriden and even has a picture of Aldous Huxley to sit under. The staff are very friendly and the food is great. It is not a 5 star dining experience, it is a diner. But, it is a great diner. The breakfasts are very good, especially the fretta. For lunch the club sandwiches are awesome.... More

Offer a huge selection - good food - always very busy but service is quick and waiting for a table is usually short. Sunday mornings they have a piano player - restaurant is like a library setting.
