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.

The food at the Homer Street Cafe was delicious - especially the house salad. Good choice of beers on tap and interesting wine list. Ambiance was fun ... perhaps a bit loud for us but overall friendly and helpful service.

First time at the restaurant and food was just ok.
The price is too pricey for what it is and the portion is not big.
Service was ok but the food came almost for about 1 hour.
Not a big fan of the place who made excuses of taking longer to get the food to the table.

Always enjoy coming here.
Service was friendly and nice!
We came late so were only given the happy hour menu. The items were nice but It would be nice to see more vegetarian items added to the list.

Service was excellent. I only gave it 4 starts because the portion of gnocchi was a bit small but it was delicious.

Perfect Sunday night dinner. Loved the rotisserie chicken. Our seat was very secluded which we were able to enjoy the restaurant vibes because of that. However, great service and friendly staff.

Jody is an ambassador. Jessica is the most outstanding server west of the Rockies. And then there is the food: fresh, succulent, clean, nurturing and ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
See you next week.

Homer street cafe was great! Our server Christian (?) was fun and entertaining. He made some excellent suggestions from the menu (the eggplant was incredible and I don’t even like eggplant) and gnocchi was outstanding. Fair prices on entrees and the wines too

Overall great experience. Oysters were super fresh and tasty. I ordered the Lingcod entree but was a bit disappointed because it was salty. They put ham in it, which was new to me. The server made it right by offering the steak entree instead and it was so much better.

Food is delicious, creative and beautiful to look at. Service was great and they attend to your needs very quickly. Great location for a fun brunch gathering. Music can be loud at times making it hard to hear those next to you but we asked them to turn it down a little and they happily complied. Will definitely go back!

Reserved a table for 2 for my sisters Anniversary. Service was amazing! They said they had the best server and they brought a glass of champagne on the house. Thanks for making my sister and her husband’s 22nd Anniversary a huge success! They said it’s their new favorite place!

Have not been back in almost a year, and was great to be back. As always the service was great, and our server was incredibly friendly. However, the seat by the stairs is not a very desirable place to seat customers due to the ongoing traffic continually going up and down the stairs. Considering the restaurant was almost completely empty, and having made a reservation, perhaps more appropriate seating would be preferable, especially when the restaurant being almost completely empty. The food was great and very well proportioned, however, the rids were a disappointment as they were "dry", full-flavored but missing that "gooey" goodness. The "biscuits" are a cute idea, but not successfully executed, missing a gravy....would prefer a more traditional approach with creamy coleslaw.

The food was delicious, as usual, and the service was top notch. COVID protocols are in place and enforced. The menu and ambiance is among the best in Vancouver. And the handwritten card from staff to help celebrate our special occasion was a very thoughtful touch. If you haven’t been here, give it a try!
