This place has great breakfast. Piano player on Sunday during breakfast and books all over the place are nice touches. Plenty of choices for everyone and good amount of parking.

Have been to Huxleys quite a few times.....With friends, relatives and my sweetie. Each time, the service was wonderful and the food was cooked the way I like it! It does get very busy, but the wait staff and chefs don't let that slow them down, and it certainly doesn't affect the quality of the food. The atmosphere is very... More

Prices very reasonable- portions are large- very relaxing atmosphere & staff very friendly - Give it a... More

I have enjoyed coming here for several years but not that frequently. Similar to a diner but more like a restaurant. The food is always fresh, the service is quick and polite. They have a varied menu with vegetarian dishes as well. A great place for lunch or breakfast. And a very eclectic selection of books to read while you... More

Huxley's has a large local following, lots of character and friendly staff. It does get busy, especially for breakfast on the weekends, so be prepared to to sit back and enjoy a coffee while you wait. You can also get great breakfast sandwiches to go, which I sometimes grab on the way out in the mornings.

We frequent here on Sundays for the excellent food & the awesome piano man! The wait tends to be long & the waiting area confusing to the waitstaff, maybe they can give out a number when you walk in that way they aren't fumbling around yelling out "WHO'S NEXT?!" Other then that when you go before or after the rush... More

This little place is amazing. The waitress are friendly and super efficient. No matter what time of the day you come in, you will have a hot plate in front of you in minutes. On the weekend they have a piano player. Such a nice touch. They have specials daily. It is affordable and good.
