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.

Chicken wings are so good here. Our other go to favourite is the Cobb salad. For brunch, it’s always the eggs Benny.

Overall the food was quite tasty, but some missed the mark of an truly delicious restaurant. The dessert in particular was disappointing. I believe that other restaurants might offer better value.

That being said, this is a great restaurant to come to with a group. Everyone can eat well and on a per-person basis the cost is more reasonable. There are also great sharing options, notably the chicken. The service was also excellent (very friendly) and the atmosphere was lovely: Great music and aesthetically decorated.

Service was responsive and friendly. Delightful, casual-chic-lively atmosphere both indoors and outdoors. The beef lunch entree had an odd, almost gamey flavour: wouldn’t recommend that dish, but the salads and service were lovely!

Made a reservation and requested outdoor seating but was told they could not guarantee an outside table. We showed up 10-15 mins early to try and secure an outside table. Staff was very accommodating and did everything to seat us safely and in a timely manner. Our server and others were all exceptional. Value was ok but pricing is a bit high - mashed potatoes for $12 seems excessive. Food tasted wonderful

We had all the specials and they were excellent. Pork with farro risotto, squid caesar salad and warm caramel bread pudding. Very comfortable and calm on the patio. Service was always pleasant and courteous though one server seemed a little awkward delivering cocktails and dishes -maybe a little more practice? A lovely and delicious evening overall .

Great first experience!

First time and will be back again. The host that welcomed us was so inviting and great. Awesome start to a great brunch.

Only thing we would like is more options than pork. We don’t eat pork. One of us ordered the big breakfast and after the change to chicken the big breakfast wasn’t so big but either way. Awesome menu options and amazing staff :)

Went great overall, my only caveat was the noise levels from the street / being so near the kitchen that we heard everything.

9.99/10 and we will be back.

I had the Cobb salad. It was disgusting. Wet and tasteless chicken that would not even fill a tablespoon.

It doesn't matter what you pick on this menu because literally everything is fantastic.

The pork belly is particularly excellent if you need a recommendation.

Our first meal out since the whole COVID situation started in March and the Homer Street Cafe did not disappoint. While it was unfortunate that the rotisserie was having an issue that day the meal was still excellent and the service was as well. Should have shared the dessert but I got to enjoy the remainders the next day. A very pleasant surprise to have a complimentary sparking wine precede our meal but that set the tone for the evening. I strongly recommend both this and its sister restaurant, Le Tableau (still closed at the moment) for anyone looking for a casual dinner out.

Food was tasty, although portion sizes were quite small for brunch considering the price. I think there were a total of 4 hashbrowns on my plate. Our server was friendly, but the service slow. Overall a good experience.

There was a huge delay in drinks and food. Waited about ~20 min for coffee and ~40 minutes for brunch food. But everything was delicious and owner apologized.
