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 whole experience I would describe as so-so. A LOT of noise, ie banging and shouting, coming from the kitchen. If you are a die hard Cobb salad fan, skip it here.

    super mega extra loud, needed to shout over the music to hear my companion asked to move outside (in Febuary) to be able to hear each other, only one heater was running and that was directly underneath a loud (very loud) speaker Super friendly staff, but they could not do any thing about the noise levels, and could not turn on a heater for an outside table that was a bit quieter we were very disappointed, had been very much looking forward to visiting Homer Street Cafe, we had planned our day around it we had to leave after 5 min only due to the excessive noise, got take out pizza and enjoyed life and. conversation, beats screaming at each other over really good food ;-)

    The clams with cannellini and guanciale is a revelation. We ordered one to share and realized it was a mistake because we really needed one each. Also, tartare without tots is forever ruined now!

    A pleasant, popular spot for Happy Hour or early dinner. Almost all the seats were in use, making it somewhat noisy. We were encouraged to leave after less than two hours, so it's not a place to relax and linger. The kitchen staff were making themselves heard over the din, which added to the noise. The burgers and beers were good. Service was attentive.

    We arrived for brunch (with a reservation secured) shortly after they opened. We were given the worst seat in the house (corner by the bussing station and hallway to the restrooms). I wanted to ask to be moved but my friend didn’t want me to. That was not great but the rest of the dining experience was very nice. Best Eggs Benedict I’ve ever had.

    We got the “Full Monty” which was great value! At $115 in total, we were able to get a taste of a few dishes which included butter tart which (being Australian) had never tried, truly delicious! Included with the meal was a bottle of hot sauce… a nice touch to take away. Great atmosphere and a simple, nice menu.

    Food was good. Value ok. Service was meh, order took over half an hour after being placed. Super loud in our small three table section up top but that probably had more to do with one of the tables next to us. Have had previously been and had better service so I would say maybe an anomaly this time around.

    FOH lady was very kind and accommodating for a booking miscommunication. Food was great. Wish the side spring mix had some toppings to dress it up tho. Loud and vibrant brunch place. Our waiter did not like that we didn’t order drinks and was not in the mood after lol. Other than that was pretty decent.

    The Homer Street Cafe is a gem on all levels - the food is outstanding, the service, prompt and professional (thank you Kirk!) and the kitchen is superbly managed. We sat at a table overlooking the food prep. I have rarely seen such a calm and professional crew on a busy night - well done Chef et al. I love the space - beautiful old building, high ceilings, big windows and lots of interesting nooks and crannies which creates a variety of dining vibes. The menu is simple and portioning is perfect making it easy to sample and pair a wide variety of their excellent dishes. Our server, Kirk was able to advise on what dishes to order, based on a simple question, “How hungry are you on a scale of 1-10?” And he was spot on. While everything we ordered was superb, the back ribs were some of the best i’ve ever eaten …and i’ve eaten ribs at some of the best BBQ restaurants across North America. Thanks to all for a great dining experience - we will certainly be back! Blake
