We enjoyed our breakfast here. Cute restaurant with an outdoorsy vibe. The waffle was one of the best waffles I've ever tasted... It was very unique. The breakfast bagel sandwich was delicious as well. Small menu, but they do it right. Good for take away or enjoying on their patio on a nice day

Our family of 7 stopped here for breakfast. The menu has some creative combinations, but overall is pretty simple - making it easy to order. They have coffee drinks, smoothies, bagel sandwiches, and wafels. The bagels are pretty big so ask for it to be cut in half - it can feed two if you aren't too hungry. The wafels... More

We needed a break from the typical (but good) lunch of fried fish and french fries we had been eating all week, so went went to Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Easy to find, has parking, places to sit outside, free wifi, clean restrooms and great food! What more do you need? You order from a counter, and there... More

The wafels are amazing and the bagel sandwiches are delicious! The service is friendly yet slow but the food is definitely worth the wait. The location is quaint and comfortable. The coffee is a must. The Tuckaway is a daily breakfast tradition during our annual trip to Estero island.

Great food and service. Best cup of coffee or cappuccino, bagel with Lox, steamed bagel sandwiches. Employees were helpful and kind and good with our kids. Small shop but has outdoor patio.

Wonder what kind of establishment will be here next year? We never got past the rudeness of what appeared to have been the owner. Went to the SevenEleven for coffee, etc. for the rest of our trip.

What a great find and their hot sauces also very good. Definitely recommend for your breakfast to set you up for the day.

amazing breakfast and lunch. The steamed breakfast bagel sandwiches are out of this world. The Belgium waffle is unlike any I've ever tasted. Loved it with the Nutella. A must visit in Ft Myers Beach
