Great coffee

This is the place for a great cup of coffee! Unfortunately, on the day I ordered a regular latte, I asked for sweetener in my espresso so I wouldn't have to stir it on top of the frothy milk but our barista said just stir it in after. I asked again to please stir it in with espresso before the... read more

Perfect place for a bagel and coffee. Adorable little place with outdoor seating. A short walk from Times Square area. Stop by!

The breakfast sandwiches on bagels were very good, the waffle is not a Belgian waffle a more doughy type of waffle but good. The waitress was a little too pushy for a laid back atmosphere

Thank you for your review. Our waffle is a Belgian waffle. It is a Liege Belgian waffle. We make a dough as opposed to a batter. It is an authentic Belgian family recipe. More

It's hard to find a steamed bagel smothered in lox and sprinkled with firm, tangy capers outside of NYC - but this place did the trick. Espresso was bright and strong - and the breeze from the water made it all the better.

We never had breakfast at the Tuckaway because we had a good free breakfast at our hotel, but we were there every morning at 7:00 for a latte. Other people were very pleased with their breakfast sandwiches, but we never got to try one. Service was cheerful and friendly, lattes were excellent.

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 staff are... More
