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.

    There were 3 of us and we shared the Full Monty platter. It was perfect! Great to sit outdoors in the shade - good temp on a Summer's night and a little quieter than indoors.

    Had a business lunch yesterday. The noise level from the open kitchen - mainly clattering kitchenware and shouty staff made it quite difficult to hold a conversation. Serving sizes are generous but my guest couldn't even get close to finishing his half rack of ribs and I was defeated 3/4 of the way through my 1/2 chicken - only cracked the surface of the small, overcooked and greasy fries. Super nice waiter, good ambience...I'm not beating up on you folks - I like HSC and have been coming for business and personal dinners about twice a year since you opened. Maybe I'll ask for a more intimate section next time. I'm saying yes to my recommendation but I'd probably do a little digging with what they want before making it a broad recommend.

    Chicken was dry and flavorless and skin soft, gravy was not good. service was not good - we waited at front and staff walked by us twice then came and said hi (same staff member) and then we didn’t get checked on enough or asked how our meal was. costco rotisserie chicken is much better than their chicken :(

    I made a reservation and the bday dinner went terrible. The staff didn’t care, we had half dinner on a table besides the kitchen without AC. We were served a hot bottle of wine e and when asked the manager about it he said “I don’t have the means to do anything to serve the wine at the right temperature” Seriously? We didn’t get an apology only or anything. If you want to ruin a party this is your place!

    Was very hot inside. We hadn’t booked outside but were told a table was free. Then we were told it wasn’t free but we could wait at the bar and have a drink and to be fair another table then became free. We both ordered starters (salad and some oysters and then two entrees. My wife’s salad came and she waited for my oysters. After 5 minutes the server calmed and asked if there was a problem and we said we were waiting for my starter. He went to check the order in the computer and then came back and said he thought we wanted the oysters served with the steak… Well, we didn’t and they are listed under starters! Anyway they came and I got another drink on the house, so all ended well. The food is good but I wouldn’t want to be inside on a hot summer day - doors and windows open but the ceiling fans don’t do much - so perhaps make sure you book outside if it’s hot

    Amazing food, beautiful restaurant, but it was so hot and I don't care about me, I'm there for fun. But you gotta grant your employees some leeway with uniform. Long sleeved shirts and pants are simply not okay. These poor kids were just dying. Service impeccable despite gross conditions. Will return for sure. Thanks!

    DELICIOUS rotisserie chicken with cheddar biscuit and fresh greens salad! Best of all is the friendly and efficient service. Wine selection is good and reasonably priced. Dining on the outdoor patio is delightful--and avoids the loud music inside the bar area.

    The service was absolutely outstanding. We were blown away at how attentive and friendly the staff were. When so many other restaurants are struggling to provide a pre-pandemic service level, Homer Street Cafe has totally exceeded that level and more. The food was also delicious. Would certainly come back the next time we are in Vancouver.
