Haven't tried the Bagel, but the Wafel is Amazing!

The wafel is homemade with three different sugars and your choice of topping. I go with their homemade whipped cream and it's simply divine. I'm also quite picky about hot chocolate (most places make it with water - yuck!), these guys use real milk and chocolate though. They even threw in a shot of... read more

The Tuckaway is always a must stop when we are in Fort Myers - fantastic steamed bagel sandwiches (try the Green Peace) and wonderful French waffles to die for and lattes. The staff could not be friendlier - sit outside and enjoy - we ride our bikes at least twice a week when we visit. Internet available. Say hi to... More

Couple up's / Couple down's A cute place w/ a nice staff. Attentive to kids w/ a patience offering extra cup immediately after spilled orange juice. I am unsure if the eggs are real as they were quite watery ( must be liquid egg something like Egg Beaters ). Made in batches ahead of time just sitting all day for... More

Went here every morning for cappuccino and bagel. The bagels are quite big and stuffed so I like to share one with a friend. Had the sunrise and the mcgregor on jalapeño bagel. Both were delicious. The people are very friendly. Delightful little spot. Will definitely go back.

Had to try this place again. We ate here on a previous trip to FMB and had to try a return visit. We weren't disappointed same great coffee and steamed bagel breakfast sandwiches. Parking is limited but we've always got a space. Must try.

Had such a great experience here! Delicious coffee and bagels. I got the lox bagel and it comes with so much salmon! Boyfriend got the banana honey and peanut butter bagel. Bagels are huge! Service was so nice and friendly. Lady taking orders was so sweet!! The patio is so fun and has plenty of shade. Parking is scarce but... More

Not being a true coffee connoisseur, I went in this morning to Tuckaway asking for a caramel machiato. The staff made sure that I knew the difference between the Italian macchiato (shot of expresso and a dollop of froth) and the cream sugar laden version that I had become accustomed to in SB's across the country. Thank you for taking... More

One morning I went to get two bagels for my son since the ones at Publix had egg washes which he cannot do. No issues and they were very good. Friendly but perturbed I did not want butter or anything. A few mornings later my hubby went to try and grab plain bagels for sandwiches later for lunch. He was... More

Thanks for your review. We have nothing on our menu or menu boards about selling individual bagels. If you would like to buy a few bagels we accommodate you. If you want to buy several say 6 we ask that you mix the flavors so we don't run out of a particular flavor early. We don't sell bagels by the... More
