Comfort Food
LOCALLY MINDED. RESPONSIBLY RAISED

Housed in two of Vancouver’s most iconic buildings, Homer St Cafe and Bar is a contemporary restaurant set in the historic Homer Building and new Beasley building in Vancouver’s Yaletown district.
Classic comfort cooking takes center stage thanks to a fire engine red rotisserie that roasts all manner of proteins. It’s chicken that’s the star here: served in quarter, half or whole portions, accompanied by classic sides basted in jus.
A decidedly adventurous wine and cocktail list rounds out the menu. The restaurant features two spaces that consist of an open concept kitchen “Chef’s Bar” where one can get up close and personal with the culinary team, a semi private dining room with reclaimed factory windows, and bespoke seating complemented by antique tiling.

We had a quiet table on the patio. Our server was great - fun, attentive but not intrusive. The food was amazing! Would definitely go again and highly recommend.

The consistency of this restaurant always amazes me. The food is fresh, tasty and well prepared, the hosting and service are efficient and friendly. Sitting on the patio was an added plus.
The only caveat here is some of the seating inside can be uncomfortable for seniors.

Very accommodating when I had to call and bump my reservation 1/2 hour. Lovely patio table was provided. We had a few starter/noshy plates, which were delicious (LOVED the croquettes). I was expecting a more "basic" experience which a "Cafe & Bar" implies, but the high quality of the experience in every way made it a much more fine dining experience.

We always have a good time at Homer Street Cafe. But perhaps because of the long weekend, it felt like they were short-staffed and service was lacking. The food took longer than usual and while the server offered complimentary bread to tie us over until the food arrived, it never materialized. The food was great as usual when we got it but it took another 15 minutes to get the bill after we asked for it.

I guess just overall I was underwhelmed. Or maybe my expectations were too high based on the website. It wasn't "bad" per say, I felt the service was subpar but admittedly it was peak time on Friday evening so?? The table we were seated at was very close to the next table, kind of felt they were part of our conversation. The table was also at the edge of a row but just felt like I was sitting in their walkway. These days restaurants are using expediting servers so it was kind of confusing as to who was our actual server. Each interaction was with someone new. Eventually, I figured it out.

We had an amazing dinner at Homer’s. Our dinner happened to coincide with the Late Happy Hour. We were fortunate to sample some of the great options on the list. The Pork Belly was amazing ... crispy, succulent, and maple-sweet. Our mains were the flat iron steaks on an amazing savory sautéed kale and the side of roasted broccolini was amazing (my green vegetable wary Hunny was totally smitten by these dishes). Great cocktails started the evening, the wine was perfectly matched and the closing lemon curd dessert was a perfect shared finale for the meal. We were visiting Vancouver and were very fortunate to find this little beauty!

Interesting twist on classics. Pulled chicken eggs benedict, cobb salad and bacon and rotisserie chicken cobbler were tasty examples of originality.

The service we had was excellent (Dane). The food was very tasty, although the lamb was a little over done. The peanut butter cookies with Nutella dip were delicious.

Portions have shrunk considerably. Their famous chicken cobbler is maybe half the size of what it used to be. Tastes good, but not good value for your brunch money.

The decor was fantastic and so was the music. The tables in the section where we sat were too close together barely a foot in between tables, so it was not a great place fir an intimate date night or even a conversation that wouldn’t involve the people at the next table. The cocktail special “Hysteria” was fantastic, but the food was totally forgettable.

Service was good but could have been a bit more engaging. Had to ask for drinks when they were empty.
Classic French Inspired dishes, not too pricey!
The ambiance on the patio is so nice in the summer!

Love the Homer Street cafe. It's great for brunch/lunch/dinner. Enjoyed a lovely dinner on a warm evening - delicious food as always, beautifully plated - tuna crudo, scallops with mussel escabeche... Good list of BC wines. Best of all, excellent service from our delightful server! A restaurant can have the best food and beverage offerings but if the service sucks it ruins the experience. We always get the best service here!! Highly recommended!

First dining experience here. Came at 2pm on Sunday with a reservation. Server tells us rotisserie chicken is sold out 30 minutes ago. We came here specifically for the chicken. Waiter profusely apologized and tells us it will be available at 5pm. Well that doesn’t help us much. We had no choice but to order something else. We ordered the lemon fritter. It was good and very filling. We also order the pork belly, sausage and egg. The pork was very small and the sausage was not to our liking. Not a good choice selection. The bus girl fills our glass of water but only half full. We had to tell her to fill it up all the way. That was rather strange. Unfortunately, we won’t be going back even to try the chicken. Cool ambience and well dressed staff but that’s about it. Disappointing.

Great quality food. Our party tried the scallops w/carrot risotto and trout w/white beans. both dishes were perfectly cooked, with the seafood being very moist. Great flavours and sauces. Cute patio area but was a bit noisy with construction across the street. Suggest indoor seating if you have business meeting.
