Great staff and great food

I've been coming here for the last 4 years. The waffles are amazing. I'm not a big waffle guy, but they're so different from the standard waffle. I've got my entire family hooked on them. The only downside to the waffle is the recipe is top secret, so I have to wait all year to get them. The... read more

As long time locals living on Fort Myers Beach, we decided to walk a couple miles to the Tuckaway bagel for a cup of coffee. We arrived not knowing what time they open but just happened to arrive at 6:57 AM. When we walked through the the outside seating area we got sort of a dirty look from the gentleman... More

I needed something that resembled a McDonalds breakfast sandwich one morning so pulled in here. Ordered an everything bagel with two kinds of meat, two kinds a cheese and scrambled eggs. Oh my!! It was so delicious. They are steamed which makes them soft and messy. They recommend you keep the foil on while eating like a burrito. But so... More

We visited about 5 years ago and loved it. It appears the original owners have sold, but food and drinks still excellent. The only downside was the wait. Very slow. But the food is good, so we will go back.
