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.

We had a lovely lunch celebrating my birthday. The server was friendly, professional and informative and the food was delicious. Being near the kitchen as you walked in and left you are greated by not only the waitstaff but the kitchen staff as well. Would definitely recommend

We have been going to the Homer Street Cafe & Bar for a number of years now and always look forward to our visit. The service is excellent and the food is always good. The cafe is in the heart of the theatre district which is very much to our liking. The Commodore and VSO are near by and Hockey is a slap shot away. We wouldn't want to forget B.C. Place because it has its venues as well. The cafe is well located and the food... Going to the Homer street cafe CAN be part of a delightful night out OR it can be the reason for the night out . Either way the experience is enhanced by our visit to this fine establishment. What do I recommend? Why the food of course! Oh yeah, and for me a refreshing glass of their stout. I can see that it won't take much convincing to get me to return to one of my favorite downtown Vancouver eateries!\

Food and service were excellent. Problem was noise level. Not a place you would go for a quiet romantic dinner. Took my partner there for valentines dinner and was too loud to talk to each other. Next meal there will be on a non holiday weekday.

Interesting and active atmosphere and tasty dishes. Our group of 4 all had the rotisserie chicken. The service was very good. Only negative feature was the noise level that made conversation difficult.

We had the most incredible time on our date here! The staff was welcoming and the drinks and food were delicious. Our server was incredible and took such good care of us! We could tell he loved his job and the restaurant. He had many great recommendations and his knowledge was fantastic. Will definitely come here again in future trips to Vancouver!!

My wife was met at the door by Megan who is one of the managers (I assume) and was escorted to the table. As we have never been for been to the restaurant before Megan gave us a special little treat to start off the night, which was greatly appreciated. I also have allergies which were taken seriously and we felt extremely well cared for the whole night. The food overall was great but the pork belly appetizer stole the show. Definitely will be returning soon.

I am fond of the Homer Street Cafe. I have had very good experiences ONLY at Homer Street in all respects: the food, the unique and fascinating cocktails (they are artists and scientists when it comes to creating a "nice drink"), the staff and the mood and feel of the restaurant. I look forward to my next visit! Thanks, Homer Street Cafe!

Went here for brunch with my niece and her family as it was close and one of the few places where you can make a reservation for brunch and that has great food. The food was delish as always and the service was really good. Only reason I didn't get a full 5 stars in all areas was because the music got cranked up really loud at some point, making it difficult to have a conversation. Was a bit too much for a Sunday morning.

Dined with some out of town family friends; they were simply just blown away with their experience at Homer Street Cafe! Our servers, Sean and Rob, were extremely attentive, friendly and genuine. Sean’s way of describing the daily features got us all mouthwatering– we ended up getting nearly all of them and we were so glad we did! The food was impeccable; Chef Tristen even took some time to touch the table, describe the nitty gritty of each dish and answer any and every culinary questions my guests were having. Chef even went as far as sending one of my guest home with a little something in order for her to attempt to recreate the insanely out of these world AMAZING gluten free cookies offered on the menu for her husband that was just recently diagnosed celiac. Once again, stellar experience!

We love the Homer St. Cafe! It is our go-to place for just about any occasion . Wonderful staff, superb food and a beautiful room. In fact, we feel ambivalent about posting our fond thoughts here, because we don't want the entire world lining up outside, but, well, this place is worth the wait.

This is our new "go to" favourite restaurant in Vancouver as it provides the right mix of excellent food, ambiance and service. Even greater value on a cold day. Love to watch the open kitchen and we really appreciate the service we get.

It was our friends birthday. The staff was super nice. They wrote a message card, and they even give us a round of sparkling wine on the house. We had a great time with delicious food, especially their oven roasted chicken which was amazing ! Highly recommended . One of our favourite dining place in Vancouver !

Great service and some great happy hour menu items. Portions were bigger than expected and we left very full. Also, they gave us a small surprise at the end! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to sit down for a few drinks and some "small" dishes with friends.
