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.

My wife and I love this restaurant. Always good service and creative, delicious food. Great to have a restaurant nearby we can count on for good food and ambiance. Exceptional.

Really tasty food; great variety in the menu; lots of tasty options to choose from; great service and cool decor and ambiance. They have a feature roast that changes regularly so there's always the option of something new. I'd go again!

The main course food was great; although the selection is limited. This is a meat lover's restaurant. Service a bit slow but that is better than hovering; the cost of a cup of coffee (and a second as they don't give refills) was exorbitant, and the dessert was not the greatest. They also didn't do anything for our birthdays, even though I stated it as a special occasion on the reservation - and we were sitting next to someone who a got the candle in a tart. I'd go there again, but armed this my memories.

One of the many restaurants that now overcharge for their small amount of wine that at best is average.

Great Dine Out Vancouver experience. Unique space, lively vibe, excellent food and service. This restaurant was featured on the local news food segment, with the chef preparing one of the entrees featured on the Dine Out menu. The scallop dish looked delicious and it was! Our server Eric, was excellent and offered some great info on some different wines offered. Definitely a spot to revisit.

As always, the service and food were great at Homer Street. I took 3 guests who had never dined here and they said it was some of the best food they had eaten for a while. They live in New York and London, so no shortage of good food for them in those cities.

Took 30 mins to get coffee, another 45mins for food to come and it wasn't even busy. We were served by 4 different people, but not one of them was looking after us. Not the first bad experience. Avoid this place, it always disappoints.

My friend was visiting from out of town and Homer Street Cafe was the perfect spot! We were able to order a wide variety of items that were all amazing! Our server was also top notch being super attentive throughout the evening. Our table was very small so our server was quick to clear plates to make room for more.

Looking forward to coming back!

I took my partner here for his birthday lunch and we were not disappointed. The waitress asked if we had been there before, suggested some of her favourite menu items and was very personable. Once we received the food we were both so satisfied with the flavourfull dishes. We had dessert and wow! It was a perfect experience and we will definitely return.

Smoky close to the kitchen. Hostess said fully booked for the night when there are lots of spots available on open table. Food came quite slow comparing to previous visits, considering it's a Saturday night. Probably will only come back for lunch time.

Roasted chicken was superb! The server went out of her way! The highlight of the evening was the featured dessert - ricotta lemon flavoured custard in a caramel sauce! Made my day!!! Bravo, chef and the whole team!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻😊

Three of us ordered off the daily specials' sheet. I was surprised when our order came because it was completely different from how it was described on the sheet. Luckily, I have no dietary restrictions, so it was fine, just a little disappointing.
