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.

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.

Homer street cafe is our lovely neighbourhood night out. The cocktails inventive and the food consistently good and fresh. We miss the larger menu but like that some regular staples and a fresh sheet available. Their covid plan is solid. We felt comfortable. Try the s’mores cheesecake and peanut butter cookies with Nutella.

We came here for my fiancé's birthday as he saw their pork dishes and was interested in trying something new. Right off the bat the waiter told us we didn't have a reservation, luckily a more helpful and friendly waiter/manager(?) corrected him quickly as he had missed it. After having picked what we wanted, we were rudely told that we weren't allowed to order from the main menu, because it was brunch --despite there being a QR code on the menu telling us to use that to access the main menu.. Waiter seemed very elitist and condescending. Disappointing because we weren't interested in having brunch at 2pm. Later heard him making special accommodations for some white lady who wanted something not on the brunch menu. We are visible minorities, so i do wonder..
Food was extremely bland and unimpressive. Will not be back.

I guess it could be a one off Covid issue. Brunch wasn’t that great. The food was tabled cold. The service was very slow. My medium poached Benny was so cold I ate like a salad. Also we asked in our reservation for a table outside due to Covid but where ignored. Then they proceeded to sit us next to a larger party regardless of our concerns. We where starving by that point and it was to late to make alternative plans. We had to eat adjusting our face masks between bites. I would wait till Covid is over to here.

The food was good. Our server Emily was terrific! She made the experience even that much better. The new outdoor seating on the street is very spacious. It's interesting to sit on the street and watch the cars and pedestrians go by.

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!
