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.

First time there and I was surprised at how chic it is inside. Reminded me of an authentic French bistro. The menu was interesting... the smells and the food were very yummy. The service was excellent and the value was terrific! We'll be back.

Food was great. Only gripe is, having informed the restaurant that we were celebrating an 80th birthday, and having asked them to make a bit of a fuss about this lovely older guy, nary a fuss was made. They did put a candle in his dessert, but that was it. Also, we had to stand and wait for 15 minutes and not because we were late. We were a bit early. I thought that given the age of the star guest, we could have been seated immediately. It was a 5pm res. and the place was mostly empty.

Unfortunately it was unusually noisy with a table of 6-8 loud patrons next to us. When they left they were replaced by another equally loud group! We realize that there is no way for the restaurant to control this however it made it difficult to visit with our friends and partially ruined the ambiance that we love.

We came for an early Easter dinner celebration. Had the Sole fillet and their famous rotisserie chicken. It was very good. The sole fillet was just ok, planned to have the Halibut BUT the actual menu did not have this anymore. Anyway certain items on the On line menu is different from the actual. Place was stuffy and it was a Saturday night, was crowded. Tables layout was quite close to each other so can/may be feeling congested. Had two soft cocktails, were very refreshing, did not order dessert as nothing special. Just chocolate pudding, peanut butter pie, tiramisu, did not have the lemon Curb as stated on the on line menu so we gave dessert amiss.
The daily fresh sheet/special were sold out so couldn't get to taste them. Overall a good dining place as many option available.

Not a great brunch experience:
Long wait for a table even with a lunch reservation that we were on time for.
Two of the five dishes ordered arrived either cold or Luke warm (quickly resolved, and with fresh eggs).
Nice room but the music is so loud.
Quality of espresso is disappointing.

We booked a table for 6, before a show on Granville street - and asked to be in and out in an hour. The team at Homer Street was great! Beautiful spot, delicious food, knowledgeable team - and we were all wrapped up in an hour. Will definitely return when we have more time to enjoy!

Great food in a beautiful setting. Bravo. We hadn’t thought about the Homer for brunch, but we’re glad we did. Brunch menu is not extensive, but everything they do have is great. Would recommend it to anyone.

Great spot for a friends get together. Did not get to try the chicken as the server recommended the daily special. Meat was cooked well and just a tad bit under, but understandable as the window of perfectly cooked and still juicy is very small. Flavor wise the appitizers was good, the rotisserie pork rib was on the bland side and needed much extra sauce. Desert was decent by the books, and can benefit from having a more sophisticated touch.

Tested a bunch of things - chicken skin (a bit salty but we at them all!), Pork Belly (soooo good), bacalahaus (spelled that wrong I know, great), split the pork roast dinner (excellent), peanut butter cookies /nutella dip for dessert and a few cocktails. Everything was great, servers were awesome. Will def be back! Server even split all the food items on our bill, which was a nice touch (i.e. we each got charged for 1/2 all the above).

The Homer Street Cafe is a real gem. Prices are reasonable and the food is very good. I love the daily fresh sheeet but if nothing catches ones eye, the roast chicken is always great.
I also like the fact that reservations are very well honoured with little wait time.

We were a group but the wait staff his the fact that the tip was already included. Just before I paid I asked and she didn't answer. We go to many restaurants. Half of them trick us and we double tip. In fact some of our group doubled tipped. Not ethical in a high class restaurant. Shame on you. I hope that you do something about your 2 unethical waitresses. I plan to have another get together in the summer on the patio. I hope your wait staff find some ethics between now and then.

I have been to the Homer St Cafe a few times and if you can believe it, have never tried the rotisserie chicken. On my last visit I ordered it, and devoured it - I have never tasted chicken this good. I wish I lived closer as I would be eating there at least once a week.

Really tasty food; great variety in the menu; lots of tasty options to choose from; great service and cool decor and ambiance. They have a feature roast that changes regularly so there's always the option of something new. I'd go again!

The main course food was great; although the selection is limited. This is a meat lover's restaurant. Service a bit slow but that is better than hovering; the cost of a cup of coffee (and a second as they don't give refills) was exorbitant, and the dessert was not the greatest. They also didn't do anything for our birthdays, even though I stated it as a special occasion on the reservation - and we were sitting next to someone who a got the candle in a tart. I'd go there again, but armed this my memories.
