THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tucker & Bevvy Restaurant Review

: You won’t soon forget the name Tucker & Bevvy, which is Australian slang for “food and drink.” But you also won’t forget the food. The menu at this popular brunch spot (expect a wait on most weekend mornings) is a mix of Australian-inspired dishes, healthy plates (some gluten-free) and local fare. Satisfy your sweet tooth with Tim Tam waffles made with beer batter and topped with ice cream and Tim Tam cookies. For something savory, we like the mushroom rosti, a crispy hash brown finished with balsamic mushrooms, spinach and poached eggs. On the healthier side is the filling and tasty kale and quinoa salad with kabocha squash and poached eggs. There is also a nod to island-style breakfasts in the chicken-fried rice, made with garlic-pepper chicken and scallions. Omelets, sandwiches (even a juicy burger with “the lot”), baked goods and freshly-made juices round out the menu. While Illy coffee is "on tap," espresso drinks are missing. The restaurant is small, and tucked away on the second floor of a shopping plaza with a bright and airy interior reminiscent of a beachside cottage with fresh white walls and large windows overlooking busy Kapahulu Avenue. Owners Tony and Cecily Ho Sargent hail from Manly, a beach town outside of Sydney, where they ran a series of food establishments before returning to Honolulu, where Cecily is from. A takeout location, Tucker & Bevvy Picnic Food, is near Waikiki Beach and serves healthy picnic fare.
