Description: Located in downtown Qualicum Beach, Lefty's has been crafting fresh food daily since 1996. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts (with many gluten-free and vegetarian options available), the restaurant features comfort food with a twist and seasonal specials along with a warm, welcoming ambiance and cozy tables. Lefty's now offers stone-baked artisan thin-crust pizzas with sauces made from scratch, blended cheeses and fresh ingredients. Or start your morning with a Lefty's local breakfast, made with free-range eggs, custom British-style banger sausages, house-made jam, hot sauce and fresh-brewed locally-roasted organic coffee.

As we entered Lefty's we knew we were in for a treat.

We sat at a table outside, and the server brought us Left handed menus. We looked through the menu and found several items we were considering. We started off with a pitcher of raspberry lemonade, which was delightful ad very thirst quenching.

I ordered the Coconut Curry Chicken wrap with Caesar salad, my wife ordered Thai Chicken Wrap with Thai salad, and our friend ordered the Spannika Panni with Tomato Black Bean soup.

The food came, an we were not disappointed. The salads were lovely. My Caesar salad was fresh the dressing had a wonderful garlic taste without being too garlic-y. My wife's Thai Salad was fresh an nicely dressed. Our friend's soup looked full of tomatoes and black beans and smelled heavenly.

Our wraps and sandwiches were also quite delicious. The Coconut Curry Chicken wrap had a hint of a bite, and was very tasty. My wife's Thai Chicken Wrap was nicely spiced, the chicken was tender, and very enjoyable. Our friend's Spannika Panini was Panini version of the traditional spanakopita.

All in all, we enjoyed our meals and were nicely sated, we even turned down the opportunity to try their fabulous desserts, a perfect reason to return!

We really enjoyed our dinner at Lefty's - great food, well cooked - like really good dinner party food - proper home cooking but just a little more special. We had salmon and lamb and a trio of cakes for pudding, and green beer, as it was St Patricks day! The waitress was friendly and helpful, service was swift and we thought the price was good too. Thoroughly recommended.

Lefty's is consistently good with an interesting menu. The lemon meringue pie never fails to please. Service is always friendly and on a sunny day you can't beat the patio.
