We go to Leifs a few times every summer. Like to ride the bike trail up from Three Lakes have lunch and ride back. They have a very large breakfast menu with good size portions at a reasonable price. Lunch is also good but we prefer Lief's for breakfast.

The food is always served fresh, hot, and with a smile. You can get breakfast any time and the soup is always good.

It was a fine place to have breakfast. They did offer flavored coffee creamers and make my sons pancake in the shape of Mickey Mouse, but I had the most disgusting omelette of my life. Who thought making an omelette out of spinach and artichoke DIP was a good idea? I thought it was going to be an omelette with... More

We had a large group of 15. We did call ahead and they had a table set up for us. Only 5 other tables were there and this probably helped with our food coming in a timely manner. Our waitress was nice but did not have personal boundaries. She put her hand on my back a lot and used her... More

We always stop here for breakfast when in town. I have been coming here for many many years and have never been disappointed. You are not going to get a gourmet breakfast just a good wholesome breakfast was good selections. My favorite is there omelettes, my wife's favorite was the French toast.

Food was average, place was busy and everyone working was extremely scatter brained. Our service was awful. Took 15 minutes for our server to even take our drink order, and then she came back with only half of it. Looking around at other tables there were 5 waiting for their checks and all of the surrounding tables were out of... More

We were in the area over the fourth of July weekend, so things were busy, however our waitress was very pleasant and did everything she could to please us. Food was generous portions and service was very good. No complaints!

Lief's has a great reputation in the area, and I cans see why. Food is high quality. You will never see the bottom of your coffee cup and it's always filled with a smile and friendly word.
