If you want a reliable little place for always fresh food, Lefty's is for you. The staff are excellent, the menu is not only healthy but tasty! Prices suited us and we will be making it a regular treat.

Road trips often end up being a map of where to eat and where not to. I am so glad we ended up on the where to list! Thank you!

We went for a late lunch. The service was great and the food was excellent. We noticed there were gluten free options on the menu. This is a great place for breakfast, lunch or light supper.

Sorry, but we don't consider Canadian pizza as being as good as the best US pizzas. While Lefty's wasn't great pizza, it was the best we've had in Canada. We split a Mediterrano pizza on the recommendation of our server and it was delicious. A...More
