Many months ago we posted a reader’s poll listing what we considered to be the top five restaurant tables in Vancouver. We received so much in the way of reader feedback – both positive and negative that we’ve decided to shine a brighter light on the subject, one excellent table at a time.
We love corner tables, especially the ones that punctuate the terminal of a banquette. Every one of them is going to be unique, but at least one of the (minimum 3) seats is always going to be unlike the others, as it will face down the length of the banquette, and by extension – sometimes – the entirely of the room itself. That makes it rare, which is to say special, which is to say desirable. Table #11 at Homer St. Cafe & Bar is a fine example of this type. It’s arguably one of the best seats in all of Yaletown — its comfortable black leather back; fine people-watching (being the table nearest the door); lengthy sight line; and close proximity to the open kitchen’s mesmerizing rotisserie chickens all sweetening the deal.
