We sat down but when I see a hamburger priced at $15.50 in any local restaurant it's time to move on. I understand a bit of a premium in a nicer ambiance but there's a point when you feel you're being taken advantage of. That said, for you American travelers it would be like paying $15.50 at Applebee's. For us... More

We went for breakfast, service was cheery and friendly and the place is nicely decorated. The owners put a lot if thought into it. The regular coffee was horrible and overpriced $2.85 per cup, I guess they are trying to sell the barista type coffees. Food is what they promise on the menu, priced a little above average, but healthy... More

Thank you for the comments. We take pride in creating an atmosphere and experience for our customers and are truly pleased you enjoyed it. I am surprised you didn't like our locally roasted coffee. It did however fuel the friendly service! Have a great day! Deanna D. GM More

We were so happy to happen across Leftys along our route. The food was perfect - a good variety to satisfy three different tastes. From gourmet grilled cheese to a lovely salad, we all got what we needed. A patio that was not noisy is always charming. The owner/host was friendly and gave us a great tip about a local... More

Lefty's had other than your ordinary menu with delicious salads and slightly unusual combinations. I enjoyed it very much. Very reasonably priced.

Went here twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch. The food was delicious and varied for vegetarians and gluten intolerant like me. Would definitely recommend this location! Also went to leftys in qualicum.. Not nearly as nice!

Had lunch here with our family....loved the food here-quesadilla, pizzas, a kid's pizza, broiled avocado with colourful tortilla chips, Tuscan chicken wrap, and their signature dessert nirvana. Everything was fresh. Highly recommended! We were so satisfied we came back for breakfast the next morning and it was wonderful! Sat outside in the patio as the air is better than inside.

Came here for lunch with my mother in law and my two young kids. It was very nice. They have a big menu, lots of choices, good kids menu, quick service, friendly staff. We all really enjoyed it. Kids devoured their pizzas and salads, (house salad was very nice), I enjoyed my Thai wrap. MIL enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich.... More
