Welcome to Meriden!

Meriden was founded way back in 1806 and eventually became a manufacturing center for many items including silver, lamps and metalware, glassware, kitchen appliances, guns and musical instruments.

Today, Meriden, is the showcase for one of the finest Traprock Ridges in all of New England. The Ridges frame the City, from Mount Lamentation along the easterly boundary to West Peak along the westerly boundary. Meriden is also the home of Hunter Golf Course, one of the finest public golf courses in New England.

When you’re in Meriden be sure to stop in Huxley’s Bookmark Cafe for some of the best dining Meriden has to offer…We are “Your home away from home”!

Had breakfast with friends at Huxley’s this morning. The food was exceptional, all around, the presentation fine. The wait staff was very pleasant, accessible, and coffee was refilled spontaneously. This new restaurant is spacious, lots of light through the many windows, the plan well-thought out. On weekends meals are accompanied by a fine, soft, jovial pianist. Whoever planned the restaurant, thought of everything. Very impressive with service, the food preparation, the portions, and the friendliness. Exceptional.
