My husband and I recently had lunch at Lefty's and the food and service was amazing! We had the burger and club house sandwich and both meals came out quickly and tasted great. Can't wait to go back!

We've dined at Lefty's numerous times over the past several years and can't say we've ever had a disappointing meal there. It was first recommended to us by the B&B we stay at near Coombs and the management seems to have been able to maintain a good level of service and food quality over the years we've dined there.

My wife and I enjoyed a late breakfast at Lefty's. while I didn't expect the decore to reflect a bar or dinner venue rather than a cafe, it did retain some small cafe charm. The food was delicious and good value - no complaints and I'd love to visit again some time.

we've had 2 dinners here during the past month. I've not eaten here for years due to inconsistences. my ginger, carrot and squash soup last night was good. my husband's hamburger was delicious. our friends enjoyed their seafood dish and chicken parmesan. it was busy which is a good sign. the air circulation isn't the best so one can smell...
