Today I was joined by my BCIT buds, Liane and Adrian. The spread here at Homer St. Cafe is comfort food – so you’ll see lots of laid back dishes.
We started off with the Rillettes on toast ($6) – this dish is similar to pate. The rillettes is served on crispy toast and has a nice, mellow taste to it. There is no one taste that over powers this dish and is a nice start to your meal.
Adrian settled on the Garganelli pasta, lobster, kale, lemon and chili ($22).
Liane went with the Seared Albacore Tuna and brandade, vegetable antipasto ($16).
I went with their special which was a pork knuckle pasta ($21~). The meat sauce on this pasta is nice and definitely comforting. It isn’t overly salty and I feel like the portion was perfect for what it was. Not something I would normally order, but it was good.
Homer St. Cafe is a nice place to catch up with friends in a beautiful setting. This is definitely on the higher end of comfort food places, but is a great place to start on a night out.
