Casual comfortable atmosphere, good service, reasonable prices and excellent food. Lefty’s has the recipe for a great restaurant. And lots of gluten free choices! My favourite place for breakfast or lunch.

We have been to Lefty's twice now and both times the meal has been so amazing and delicious. Great service and atmosphere. If they serve the Ginger tomato soup -it is a must try. So yummy!!!

Thank you larry7prince! The burgers are good and that is the difference of fresh food, we make our own patties in house resulting in a delicious burger. It is our pleasure to have our guests come and relax.

Four of us took my wife for a birthday lunch. First time there. Basically the food was good, but one of the entrees and daily soup was not available.

Thank you for sharing your wife's birthday with us, florendinelk. We sometimes will run out of an item since we make everything from scratch, including our soups. I am glad you enjoyed your meals though.
