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 enjoyed it so much we booked again for the next night. It was full of people enjoying themselves. We all enjoyed our choice of food. The service from the young lady from Birmingham was professional, attentive, friendly and efficient, she accommodated all our needs.

Our table was located in a higher part of the kitchen room and we were able to see the chefs at work. We thought the ambience of the whole restaurant, up the steps, inside, outside was wonderful.

Food was delish but definitely on the small portion size. I had risotto with scallops and mussels and the mussels were 3 and tiny. Scallops and risotto was best I’ve had.
It was too loud inside so we opted to dine outside A bit chilly and waiter offered a blanket without me asking.

Super cool vibe. It’s nice to see restaurants open late with great patios for summer, fun cocktails and of course, happy hour!! Loved the rotisserie chicken! So moist and you could taste the brine just enough to add that little added kick. So worth the 48 hours!

The food and service have been great every time I’ve been to this spot. Perfect for share plates. Even the bar seating is great. Only complaint would be the noise level is high so don’t let it stop you but be prepared .

First time at this restaurant. Everything was excellent. I am gluten free and appreciated the care taken by the server to inform me about my food choices as well as how carefully they delivered my meal.
Rotisserie chicken was scrumptious !!
Our female server was tops!!! Friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. Her skill and personality added to making our dinner experience a better one.....wish I knew her name.......

I ordered their signature Rotis chicken and it was underdone and tough, must have been an old bird,
the fries that came with it were way over fried almost like a potato chip the were so hard, the coleslaw was the saving grace. I would not recommend the chicken at this establishment I think you can do better
at Costco with their Rotis chicken. The service was excellent and made up for the mediocre meal.

Music quite loud especially with hard surfaces. It was a reprieve when it stopped and our table of 4 could have a conversation without having to shout to be heard. Jazz or even Top 40 would be more appropriate than whatever was playing.

Everything was brilliant at Homer St. This restaurant is perfect for every time of dining whether it is date night or it’s a business meeting or a casual evening with friends. I wished I lived in Vancouver as it would be my go to. The food was spectacular as was the service. It was the perfect way to wrap up a quick trip to Vancouver.

I’m not one to get terribly excited about roast chicken, and certainly not enough to order it in a restaurant but hey, this is clearly what they’re known for so I talked myself into it. Boy, was I not disappointed!! Literally the best roast chicken i’ve ever had! The accompanying potatoes were only okay (some were undercooked and all lacked seasoning) but the coleslaw was nice & and chicken jus was very tasty!
My husband ordered the roast of the day: beef with (better than mine) roast potatoes and a blue cheese sauce.
I would 100% go back and in all likelihood would get the chicken again, altho prob get the fries or salad to go with.

I went there to get together with friends during happy hours. When we arrived at 5pm, the place was empty but got really busy right after. The restaurant is super cute, the staff is very friendly, and I believe as efficient as they can be (a bit long, but it was indeed really busy). At some point it was too loud that I couldn’t even hear what my friends were saying.
I ordered the Happy Hour burger, cheap price but still I wasn’t impressed, didn’t taste much at all. The fries on the other hand, were super tasty ! Really loved them.
I payed quickly to free the table because they were really busy and I felt guilty staying too long while new customers were waiting to be seated ! And it’s only once home I realized I’ve been overcharged. I didn’t keep the bill, so I couldn’t check, but something didn’t add up ! Well, this is on me tho, I should have checked before paying.

I know I will go again! It was my first and only experience. That place has a lot of potential and I’m sure next time will be better.

Great restaurant! The food is amazing, the service was impeccable, and the prices were very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the food. Couple of drinks, shared appy and some mains were under $130, every dish had endless flavour. We will be coming back soon and will be bringing friends!
