Must try while on Fort Myers Beach

A quaint venue and a convenient location. Nice friendly service. A good variety of bagels, steamed or toasted. Fairly priced. Great for breakfast or lunch. One drawback in my opinion is a .50 refill for coffee.

I am not sure what they do to make their latte so good, but it was literally the best I have ever had( and that is saying a lot because I have had a ton of latte in my day!) In addition, the staff was the best- super friendly. The place is really cute/ small and fun looking. Really wanted... More

I must be missing something. Didn't excite me. My bagel was tough and the sausage was terrible. Just regular coffee is all I need. Sorry, too rich for my blood. One and done. I have no reason to go back again.

The bagels are okay, although I like them toasted crisp. They steam them, so the result is that the bagel and everything inside seems soggy, chewy, and difficult to eat. The wafel, while somewhat crispy on the outside, is nothing short of gummy on the inside. Food served in paper bowls, very casual. Wafel hard to eat with plastic flatwear.... More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast first morning of vacation. Drove around and around looking for a parking spot. Finally someone left, right in front of the building. Found out there is only 4 parking spots available. Ordered two bagels with just cream cheese, one small coffee. Almost $10..I must be crazy but I have never, or will never spend... More

Had a little time to kill and found this gem which could be missed when driving by. The coffee was excellent. The next time I will have a wafel. There is small court yard with tables and chairs, plus seating inside. Staff was very friendly!

My favorite thing about the Tuckaway is that it's just that, tucked away with this lovely little garden with eclectic decorations that just welcome you in. Their coffee was average, but I'm a professing coffee snob. It was good enough, though, and I drank all my vanilla soy latte! Unfortunately on the day we went, their card machine was broken... More

My first visit was about a year ago. Ever since then and every time I come to the beach, I know exactly where to go for exceptional service! The one time I came and they weren't accepting cards, they still cooked my order while I went to an atm. Most places of which wouldn't do that! Not only that, but... More

Went to the Tuckaway for the first time on our recent week long visit. They are the only coffee shop on the island and they have great coffee. Their steamed bagel sandwiches give Heavenly Biscuit a run for their money and honestly I chose The Tuckaway over HB 6 out of 7 days. I live their atmosphere and the employees... More
