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.

    Over priced food. Indint grt what all the hype was about. $55 for cold tuna dish, and beef tartare that looked like dog food. Both portions less than enough to fill a child up. Would not recommend

    Lack of seasoning in all dishes - salt is lacking in all dishes Rotisserie chicken was dry, French fries were over fried Gravy was all sweet with no savory element to balance. It was very unfortunate as this used to be a place I love to go. Ventilation was very poor and I sincerely think the restaurant needs to be deep cleaned and a major scrub down. I have sat at bar counter at many restaurants with open kitchens, this is the first time I had to scrub down when I got home because of the greasy smell. All clothes have to be washed and coat has to be taken in for dry cleaning. Our server (a Japanese young lady) was the star and she was very helpful with the order and service. Kudos to her.

    It’s been about 5 years since I dined at HSC. It did not disappoint. Boyfriend and I were served by Tess. She was a gem. We had the full rack of ribs. Delicious! The dirty martini and bottle of white wine were fabulous. We sat at counter facing kitchen and restaurant. The lounge was bustling. Great ambience & Perfect night!

    We had Tess as our server and she couldn’t have been sweeter. The food and drinks were good! It was a busy Saturday night and the place was packed - fun but not too loud or wild. Seriously recommend.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the brunch at the Homer Street Cafe, however my only comment was that it is very noisy and hard to have a conversation! Maybe that is because I am senior and most of the people were very young. What is a quiet time of day?? However as it was my sister's birthday they gave us two mimosas complimentary which was much appreciated. Thank you

    The building that houses Homer Street Cafe is beautiful, the staff always warm and professional. My friend and I enjoyed lunch. It was her first time but I’ve been before. Our only concern was the music, which was somewhat loud and interfered with our conversation. It seems a trend in Vancouver. Places like Tableau on Melville Street do not have background music or it’s quiet enough but the din of conversations still allows for a lively atmosphere. Thanks for your consideration. Happy New Year - Cecilia Rossier

    Have been to The Homer many times over the last number of years, one of our neighbourhood favourites, but they sadly missed the mark last night. Signature roast chicken was dry and served, what felt like warmed. Advertised mussels and clams came to table as mussels only, when pointed out to the server, she did not know why and then returned back advising it was due to clams/tides. If know that the dish did not include both shellfish, a different entree would have been chosen from the onset. No adjustment on bill for this item. Just a “too bad” response. Requested high top table on reservation and was not seated at one with no reference to preference asked for. Overall it felt like the restaurant just wanted to close for the night. We will give it one more try on our own and will not take guests with us. Hopefully it was an “off” night for the staff.

    The food was incredible. The service was bar none. It’s the combination of such great food and such great ambience. It’s buzzing in the room but quiet enough to catch up with friends. One of our favourite spots in the city. Our 10 year old daughter said “the burger was the best she had ever had!” Our go-to for a consistently great experience.
