About Us

 Simple ingredients prepared the home-style way, equals great food.

Our Story

Serving others is a great reward in and of itself, and serving others with food is icing on the cake.  Food has always been a passion of Chef Ray’s and he is no stranger to any kitchen.  At the young age of 14, Ray was right at home cooking in his family restaurants.  His passion continued throughout his teenage years, 20’s, 30’s and continues today.  For the last 11 years, Chef Ray has poured his heart and passion into Lefty’s Cafe which was located in the little hamlet of Bezanson, Alberta. 

Lefty’s Cafe orLefty’s as the locals call it, was a popular community gathering spot.  It was here that Chef Ray called home and connected with guests near and far!  Guests that became family! During this time, catering requests for Lefty’s great food grew.  In January 2023, Chef Ray shifted his focus to catering full time.  This was not an easy decision, but was one that offered better family/work balance while still serving Lefty’s guests.      


Lefty’s Cafe becomes ‘Lefty’s Catering & Kitchens’

Lefty’s Cafe slightlychanged their name into Lefty’s Catering.  Their passion is still good old-fashioned wholesome food, which is why the menu continues to focus on home-style family favourites. Quality ingredients prepared the home-style way, equals great food.  It is that simple.

I was one of the organizers of the curling tournament in Sexsmith this past weekend and I just wanted to send off a HUGE thank-you to you guys for the delicious meal. Everything tasted amazing and it was so nice how much of it was gluten free as many people in my family can’t eat it and they all said it was delicious!
