The food was wonderful, but the service was rather slow. We arrived after the lunch rush, but it took a very long time to bring a bowl of soup and a salad. The coffee is superb. The staff are friendly. The menu is quite vast. We ordered what we thought would be quick.

We had a nice, quiet lunch and it was a treat. While they have some of the usual type of options, they have some good upgrades and some neat twists. It's nice to be able to get gluten free and vegetarian choices, rather than just a couple. We're happy here!

In Qualicum beach for a short visit on a chilly February day....three ladies on a day out needed a snack to get them through the afternoon. The Salad - Kale plus a mix that made it the best I've tasted; the soup chosen by one person was excellent, and a shared sandwich was enough to fill a hungry stomach. This... More

I've made 3 trips to this restaurant and couldn't resist the soup special each time. Very hearty and filling. I had to take the deserts to go.

Nice and small spot for an afternoon casual dining experience. In the heart of Village. Great desserts.

Stopped for brunch & Lefty's was just right. My mate tried the cabbage rolls which he described as "delightful!!" and I sampled the clam chowder and chicken quesadillas, generously stuffed with tasty cheddar cheese, chicken, veggies including spinach. Lefty's was packed but we were shown to a window seat quickly then promptly served by a friendly waitress. We finished with... More

Stopped in for a bowl of soup after enjoying some shopping in Qualicum. I had their soup of the day, which was tomato, basil and feta and it was absolutely delicious. My friend enjoyed a bowl of their borscht soup, which is always on their menu and raved about it as well. Would definitely go back and look forward to... More

A couple of years ago we went to Lefty's for Mother's Day and it was terrible. Hardly anyone was in the restaurant, the cooks were in the back being very loud and smoking, and one server grudgingly brought us the worst quality dinner we've had in Qualicum Beach in 10 years of living here. That said, lots of people have... More

Qualicum beach is a small town but this restaurant was as good as those in any city. The server was really good and very engaged and friendly. The food was excellent. This place has a theme which is more of a running gag about the superiority of left handed people. They have another location in Parksville too. As we were... More
