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 went to Homer St. Cafe to celebrate my graduation. They gave us all a glass of champagne on the house as a congratulations. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for the high quality.

Food is always so flavourful, tender and generous. Staff moral is upbeat and they are so attentive. You’d never know the stress the employees have been under during the pandemic because they joyfully power through. I love this place.

Great night at a warm, welcoming restaurant/room with a terrific server and great food. Cocktails were solid as well. This is the second time I've really enjoyed my dinner at the Homer St. Cafe. The buffalo chicken mushrooms were divine. Thank you!

Excellent service by everyone especially our server and really enjoyed dinner and drinks. The daily special of bbq beef shoulder with 3 generous sides was absolutely delicious.
Just found the music too loud for a room with hard surfaces. Can’t have a conversation without saying “excuse me?” often.
Our high top table was also in the direct line of cold draft from the opened patio door which should not be kept open for long periods of time.

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast after our morning yoga session. The food was delicious, but the bartenders were the real showstoppers.

We were five ladies and had a great time. Delicious food, friendly, helpful and efficient service. We were going to the opening of Ballet BC and they made sure were out in time without feeling rushed. Lots more we would like to try on the menu.

HSC is our go to brunch spot. Great atmosphere. Wonderful service and some darn good food. They craft a cocktail vs just pouring a drink. Try the brandade. You won’t regret it!

A historic cozy place to dine with great vibe, good food, and friendly staff. Love that the original inside decor has been retained even during it's modernization. There is a lovely little a heated outdoor patio. Try the shared dinner 'Full Monty'....it will not disappoint!

Food was excellent. We ordered the gnocchi, hangers steak, and the brussel sprouts to share. We enjoyed all of these dishes and would definitely order them again. The cocktails were also great.

Our server gave us great suggestions for our meal and was friendly. The atmosphere was energetic with a cool modern decor.

Having not been in this restaurant, at full capacity in over a year and a half, I had forgotten how close tables are together and how noisy it can be. It was a challenge focussing on the conversation. Having said that, there was a vibrancy that reminded me of pre-COVID life.

Just two points… one the music is far too loud! two - sadly this is another resto that’s gone the wag of charging for EVERY SINGLE extra. We all know good food is expensive but there comes a time when all the extra charges just feel like you’re being nickel and dimed to extinction.

BUT - on the positive note - the food and service are always stellar!!!
