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.

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!!!

Very attentive yet not overbearing service. Great food- both appetizers and main course. Definitely a happening place, as there were still ample crowds (and noise) when we left at 10pm. Overall a solid and worthy-to-visit place.

Another fabulous dinner at Homer Street Cafe! Tonight we had their Hanger Steak, Cobb salad and a side of fries. (And a warm butter tart.) Delish! Great service by Stephane. Thanks to the whole HSC team! 👏👏👏

Great Eggs Benny. The restaurant was pretty loud, but I don't think there is much that can be done about it due to its design and layout. It was my second meal, and I will definitely be back again to try more.

The room is extremely noisy. The wait staff were in need of more training. The chicken was very good, the salad had too much radicchio and dressing and was bitter. The coffee is terrible. My dining companion accidentally spilled her glass of red wine. Admittedly her mistake, but it would have been a classy move for the restaurant to offer to replace the single glass of wine she ordered. It was too bad, because the room is lovely.

Thoroughly enjoyable evening had, with nice drinks and nice appies. Slightly cheeky to use Beefeater gin for a “Spanish Style G&T” and charge $15 or so but it still tasted good :)

There were 3 of us there. I had the burger which was a gut bomb, as was what my wife ate which was the cobb salad. A friend of ours ate the eggs benny with ham and had to go to work after. For the first hour and a half of her shift she thought she was going to be sick. The service was outstanding but the food was not good at all.

The service was very prompt, the food was excellent, but we felt very rushed - rushed to decide, rushed to order, and rushed to finish our meal. The prices have gone up considerably and while the food was excellent, it was expensive.

The Homer St., Café is the epitome me what a café or bistro is all about! The cocktails are well-crafted and the food is delicious! I love the combination of a vibrant, modern atmosphere with a building that has old school charm! Honestly, there is nothing about HSC that I don’t love!

This was our first time at Homer St for brunch and it was fabulous. The menu featured elevated standard brunch fare and the service was just spectacular. No idea how they manage it when every other restaurant in town seems to be suffering from staffing issues, but it was a pleasure. Great spot, great decor, great food and great service!
