We love this spot! The food is always great and the service is too. It's super close to home which is always a plus and we are always in and out. It's perfect for Sunday mornings or when you just don't have time to make your own breakfast! Highly recommend the bookmark!

Great food, pleasant atmosphere complete with light jazz played by Bill, the piano man, friendly staff, good prices. Huxley's is a popular place for breakfast and lunch every day, but especially on Sundays. We have been meeting friends for Sunday brunch there on a regular basis for the past ten years.

If it is not busy you have a chance of a decent breakfast. When he gets busy the attention to quality of food goes right out. There are many other breakfast places that provide better quality food.

We have been going to Huxley's for years and it never disappoints. The breakfasts and service are outstanding. Last week we called for take-our pancakes for my 99 year old Mom. With some sausages and bacon, they were nice and hot and yummy. I snitched a taste and have to say those pancakes are special. It made a great Mother's... More

After mentioning so may times that we wanted to go to Huxley's for breakfast we finally made it. We were glad we went and will go back again. Since it was a Saturday, the place was crowded. We still were seated right away. The wait staff approached us with menus and offered coffee as soon as we sat down. Some... More

Was the first meal I bought on a recent visit to America whilst staying in Meriden. Service and food was excellent. So good in fact, I made sure we went back for my last breakfast before leaving the States.

While the food was decent, the ambiance is what really attracts me to this spot. I loved having brunch here, seeing the bookshelves and the live pianist. I had brought my 4 month old daughter and did not anticipate how crowded and loud it'd be. But, had a nice time nonetheless.
