“Special”
Reviewed February 25, 2011

Tasha's Liege waffles are spectacular. We began discussing how we might recreate them at home almost immediately. I'd call them the creme brulee of waffles. The bagel sandwiches were also wonderful, but not as singular. The little courtyard is a cute place to relax and dine under the trees. If you're looking for a delicious option to the tourist-y options, this is it.

“What a well-hidden secret!!”
Reviewed February 13, 2011

On our arrival, we were pleased to find this little cafe still on the beach, Estero Blvd., as we had enjoyed it on the last trip. Coffee, bagels & the Gauffles Wafel became a daily treat for us for 10 days. And, on our way to the airport, we stopped for a smoothie as we headed back to frigid Ohio.

Plan to enjoy a special breakfast or lunch with Tasha & Sam who were wonderful hosts!!

“Great food but small menu and not many seats indoors.”
Reviewed February 12, 2011

We stopped for lunch, the lunch menu only has a few selections but the bagel sandwiches we purchased we delicious. Very small place inside but lots of tables outside for people watching.

“Worth the FLIGHT!”
Reviewed January 27, 2011

I live in NYC but was recently in Fort Myers Beach for a family wedding and stopped in to The Tuckaway for lunch. I have to say without a doubt this is my favorite restaurant/cafe i've ever been to. If this was in NY i'd be there daily. The waffles, while not your traditional waffle and more of a desert than a meal, are absolutely mouth-watering! The steamed bagel sandwiches are completely satisfying and made with so much care and perfection that as soon as you finish one you'll be thinking about the next time you can sink your teeth into another. Very friendly, welcoming and knowledgable staff. I highly recommend this spot for anyone in the Southern US or anyone in flying distance for that matter! You won't be disappointed, I promise.
