We have enjoyed several nice lunches at Leftys. Favourites are the veggie burger, quesadilla and quinoa salad. The servers are very pleasant and efficient even when its busy. The only minor quibble I have with the place is that in winter when it is closed up more the open kitchen throws a bit of smoke out and our clothes smell... More

Went for breakfast while passing through the area and it was delicious. The French toast is really the best I've ever had. Our server Jennifer was very pleasant and very attentive. We had four in our party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

This restaurant came highly recommended by friends, it was an enjoyable experience! We made reservations for a Saturday night & glad we did, as it was busy. Got a nice table close to the bar & our server was very friendly & helpful with explaining the menu. We both took the seafood pasta special which came with a salad/garlic bread.... More

Steak and eggs were good, she had bagel and loved it. Service was very good, seating was fine, atmosphere suitable for breakfast...or other meals. Prices as expected, reasonable. Right in downtown, street parking. Will go again.

Yep! I've never liked pizza since my last fave in Argentina but as soon as I had a bite of Leftys homemade thin crust bubbly dough, topped with their "Mancino" and "Hot Stuff", my honey and I kept coming back for more almost every weekend now. The ladies that served us were very friendly despite how busy it gets sometimes.... More

Having happily lived for a few years in Comox, I regularly stopped in Qualicum Beach enroute or simply as a destination to eat the most delicious pancakes you can find!

We were there for my husband's birthday on Sept 11 2014 and I had their Blueberry salmon with white rice and veggies and my husband had peach cod with quinoa and veggies.

This is a lovely local restaurant (another in Parksville). All desserts for the two locations are made on this site. I've been to each location several times; service is quick and courteous; good selection of menu items, and great desserts.
