Great breakfast.

Seated as soon as we got there. Service was super. Food is great. I have been there every time I travel into the Meriden area. Never been disappointed.

Based on the name, I would have expected tons of books and small tables with a coffee shop and eatery type setting. This is not what we found. The books are lining the ceiling trim and the restaurant is diner all the way. Very food breakfast spot with the standard breakfast menu and lunch wasn't bad either. The portions were... 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.
