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.

Everything was very good but at times the music was blaring. Then the cook took her mask off to yell out orders

Food quite good if, as usual, a little salty. Service good until the waitress became a little distracted with the strapping lads next table over, and made me call out to her a few times when I needed service. Noise great, as in no music, until some bright brain decided to turn music on to ear splitting level - why for the love of God? Wine was good.

Homer Street Cafe has a welcoming, lively atmosphere. We had a wonderful meal including the roast chicken and the salmon. Both meals were very well prepared.

Good way to kick off the new year and celebrated my birthday here! We got bubbly on the house for my birthday, it made it extra special for me! Food was amazing and service is top notch from the greeter/host to our server. Everyone has been very welcoming and friendly. Will definitely come back again! :)

Spent our NYE here and we had a great time. The place was packed and the service was good. Our meals were a tad late but they gave us free white wine to compensate for the wait. We ordered their Full Monty and it was great. We loved the chicken and the ribs. Meal is good for 3-4. I particularly loved their Cheesecake and Line Margaritas. We will be back.

Good food and the service was great. COVID-19 protocols were not what they should be. Cook observed wearing mask incorrectly. Music was very loud and we had a hard time having a conversation.

Disappointed.

There is only one vegan choice on the menu - it's Vancouver and lots of vegans. If there were at least three options I would provide a higher rating.

Server was dialled, fast and made great recommendations. Food was unreal and same with the wine!

I had reserved a high table for 2 for 7:15PM but found out from the hostess that our table was not ready, we waited until 7:30 and found out that two other customers were still seated at our table...thankfully we were given a seat at the bar which was an okay compromise and I appreciate that. But I do wish that they had done more previously to ensure that our original booking at the table would have been kept.

Regardless I'll still return! This restaurant is damn good!
