“Best veggie burger in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Went for Mother's day lunch with mom, sis, and daughter. As always, fresh and delicious food and excellent and fun service. Don't think you can go wrong here - nice atmosphere (considering it is in a shopping complex) and great menu.

“For many years...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We have had the pleasure of frequenting Lefty's since its opening many years ago. The meals offered are well prepared, fresh and certainly yummy. Soups are fantastic, main courses varied and great tasting, desserts are terrific....spoon licking good. Service is timely with the owner frequently coming over to greet customers and ensure all is going well. Specialty coffees and teas offered as well as a wine, beer and drink list. Karma Coffee used is freshly roasted at a local roasters' in the area...hence always fresh. Good parking and accessible entrance and facilities.
Overall excellent dining and value.

“very good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We stopped in for brunch on a recent visit to Parksville. A friend from the area had recommended it and taken me there several years ago. We arrived before noon so ordered from the breakfast menu. Everything was really good, but I can't say it was outstanding. One criticism: both the pancakes and french toast come with bananas. It would be nice to have a choice/variety of seasonal fruits. The price was reasonable, and the service was very good. We would definitely go back.

The decor is really funky and cute, and it adjoins a lovely little bookstore where we browsed around after lunch.

“Outstanding!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

While on holiday with my husband, we happened upon Lefty's Restaurant for lunch. Let's just say we've returned for again for lunch AND breakfast! The French toast is amazing, but the pancakes are NOT to be missed!! You can't go wrong with anything you might order. It's all delicious. The service is friendly and they make you feel at home. Do yourselves a favour and frequent Lefty's...just as we did. Our sincere thanks to Kara and Deanna.

“Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Excellent French Toast heaped with sliced bananas and plenty of syrup and butter. The bangers were tasty as well, and coffee excellent.
