Found this breakfast place by accident while waiting to turn into the plaza across the street. Reminds us of a lot of the restaurants in Key West. Outdoor seating as well as some tables inside. Ate here two times. The toasted bagels with Lox are great, but we were not fans of the "steamed" bagel sandwiches. Anything with an egg... More

Both the coffee and Wafels were great, the lady serving us remind me of my grandma a quick wit with a bit of attitude. I had the Wafel with whipped cream and Mango jelly you cannot go wrong.

This was a last minute trip for my husband, fur baby & me; I had read about The Tuckaway Bagel before we arrived since I was looking for pet friendly places to eat. Well, let me say this was truly the best; it really lived up to all of the AWESOME reviews. From the moment we arrived we were greeted... More

Quintessential beachside cafe with more outdoor than indoor seating. We sat outside in the nicely shaded area with umbrella seating. The staff is fabulous & the food is delicious. We had a plain bagel with wild salmon lox, cream cheese, capers, red onion, wafel with homemade whip cream & a mocha latte. The bagels are steamed & the wafel is... More

The Tuckaway was THE CUTEST little cafe! Thank goodness for cell phones and google search. My girlfriend and I typed in "coffee near me" and The Tuckaway came up. It truly is a little cafe tucked away among shady trees. The building is rustic with positive and funny quotes hanging on the walls. The employees are warm and friendly. Their... More

This is the perfect coffee shop showing island living at its finest! Nothing like waking up early in the AM and drinking the best tasting coffee with a walk on the beach! Once you try it you will be coming back for more everyday! Thank you tuck away for such a great experience!

We were actually on our way to Heavenly Biscuit, but they were closed for several days.... And I am so glad they were. The Tuckaway was a great location. The patio hidden in the trees was relaxing and it was a nice reprieve from the sun!! There was also a friendly cat who visited us before our food came. This... More

Cute little local café that only serves bagels, wafels (their own recipe), Lavaca coffee and smoothies . The cashier was very helpful explaining their (small) menu and full of suggestions. Limited staying and parking.
