Visited this cute, funky breakfast place 3 times while staying on FMB. It was close to our hotel. The food was good and coffee excellent. Unfortunately, the staff were rude and impatient. It would have been our go to breakfast place on our next visit but too bad the employees didn't want us back.

Bagels are steamed not toasted. They do offer a gluten free option. Lox was good but other egg sandwiches has no flavor. Everything bagel was flavorless. We think steaming the sandwich ruined it.

What a charming place! We came for lunch, sandwiches only. Mine was prepared on a gf bagel. The owner was very helpful and friendly, even recommending a sandwich for my husband ( not gf) when he couldn't decide. We ate on the shaded outdoor patio. I'd return if again in the area.

We were very hungry after a morning at the beach and decided to try Tuckaway, and were so glad we did! Went just before noon and there were only a couple other people there. We both ordered waffles with Nutella and iced coffees (one iced mocha and one iced almond), and all were excellent! The iced coffee drinks are a... More

Good coffees and waffles in a nice courtyard setting. A little hard to find, and parking limited, but worth the effort.

Sign out front is spelled "bagel and wafel", but we tried both and they were fantastic. Favorite bagel was the Sammy, with banana, Nutella, cinnamon sugar, and cream cheese. The "wafel" (Belgium spelling for waffle according to the worker) is a waffle made with 3 kinds of sugars. Very sweet. Our group was split in which was a better topping,... More

Great food, coffee & ambiance. Definitely a 5 star! But the cashier lady who took our orders is very rude. Not even polite at all or she doesn't even know the word customer service.

This is a cute place with great coffee---- the breakfast bagel sandwiches are steamed and so the bagels are soggy and with the soggy scrambled eggs and small pieces of minced meat -- it was certainly ok and a good change for breakfast -- great coffee and homemade jam --- can eat in or out

Excellent breakfast sandwiches (the sunrise with avocado is great), speciality coffee drinks and smoothies in a small, cute cafe. Staff is friendly and their patio is perfect for nice days. Unfortunately it was raining when we went but there is limited indoor seating which worked for us! We will be back.
