Waitress was terrific, very friendly and efficient. Food and location were good, prices reasonable. We sat at the outdoor patio, which was sheltered from the wind. After I ordered my sandwich, I saw people with pizzas - that's what I should've ordered. :)

A great breakfast, the special omelette of mushroom and thyme was a flavourful delight. The standard 2 egg choice was also very good. Homemade jam on multigrain was a treat. Service was attentive and pleasant to start the morning

We go to Lefty's in both Parksville and Qualicum Beach quite often. We love the Leftcoast Bagel (QB only?!) and their pizzas are really tasty as are their wraps. We've had some good meals in both locations. However, the Parksville location is notoriously -s-l-o-w... this...More
