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.

This was my first visit to the Homer St. Cafe but I will definitely return. The food and drinks (cocktails & wine) were wonderful and I felt very safe and clean, given the current COVID-19 pandemic. Thank-you for such a positive first experience.

My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary there and it was really good.
Service was superb, and on top of a really good food, they wrote us a nice thank you note and insisted on giving us a free dessert.
Definitely a must in DT Vancouver.

For our first return to a dine-in restaurant post-COVID, we felt extremely comfortable with the serving staff wearing masks and the kitchen staff wearing masks and gloves. Ample separation divided the diners and the staff were all exceptionally friendly, attentive, and appreciative of our return. Great food as always and the staff are always superb!

One of our first meals out post-lockdown. The restaurant has implemented safety protocols, including spaced-out seating, masks on all staff members, and digital or single-use menus. The food was delicious, the room was gorgeous as always, and the service was attentive. A thoroughly enjoyable experience!

Food is good. We shared 2 very good starters and for mains, i enjoyed the ling cod, which i can highly recommend. My husband's flat iron steak was also very good, very tender and tasty. Service is friendly and attentive. It was very busy and noisy on the night we dined, but we could still talk without having to shout.

We opted for the family dinner and are so glad we did. Four of us were able to sample a range of apples, sides, and mains, then each chose our preferred dessert. The restaurant was busy, but we didn’t feel rushed or forgotten about. Some of the standouts from our meal were the brussel sprouts, pork belly, and steak. We never did figure out the unique flavour of the coleslaw. It made for a lovely accompaniment to the rotisserie chicken. We’ll definitely go back!

We were happy with our meal however the bartender was very distracted with friends at the other end of the bar. We had asked for our bill and waited for 5 minutes for anyone to come by to ask. All in all we love the place but that was really disappointing.

I booked a table for 2 at 6pm 2 weeks before the date. When we arrived we were told 3 times in the space of 5 minutes that we had to leave by 8pm as the table is booked by someone else then. We were seeing a show, would leave by 7:30pm at the latest anyway, but being told this 3 times made us feel like whoever is coming after us is obviously more important. I ordered the roast of the day which was short ribs and my friend ordered the quarter chicken. My $32 short rib dinner consisted of 2 carrots, maybe a cup of mashed potatoes and 1 short rib, most of which was just fat. It had almost no flavour. My friend, who doesn't eat dairy, was told there was no substitutes for the coleslaw, so she just had a rubbery (her word) chicken leg and roast potatoes for $24. My $13 Negroni was good, but it was so loud in there we could barely talk. I have been twice before and enjoyed it, but this dinner was so disappointing. Drinks only if I come back.

Consistently the best service in town in the best room! The food is great, too, but it’s the warmth of the room and the staff that makes HSC my go-to restaurant for date night, dinner with friends or a pre-game nosh with my kids.
