Take it all in with your eyes, nose and mouth!

Never experienced a place quite like this. It's relatively small yet the wait staff flow through the place like there is room to spare. If you plan to arrive for dinner after 6, I would suggest calling for reservations. We were seated easily at 5:30 but by 6:00, it was quite full and a line had... read more

We had dinner at this charming restaurant. We asked for the dinner special for that evening and chose the salmon and halibut entree. Great choice and meal. The service was good and the decor was fun. We can see why this is a local favorite.

Had dinner here late August. Very special and fresh food from starter to main course and desert. Too bad the Espresso machine was turned off by the time we finished (but we were late guests, so it is OK). The interior is very special, working with glas, whole bottles and all. We loved it.

We went here with high expectations, but were disappointed. The local beer, which we had sampled at other locations, came out of the tap tasting "off" and we were told it was because the brewery was inconsistent - we thought it might have been that they needed to run the tap a bit before serving. Service was just OK. Someone... More

The food was brilliant and they have local beers on tap. Pity the local beers don't measure up to the food.

Cafe Cups is a good place for an evening meal in Homer. They serve steak, seafood and other fine dining staples, all in a casual, eclectic and quirky setting. My wife and I started with a calamari appetizer which was just OK. But things improved from there as we both had green salads with unique house-made dressings that were delicious.... More

Very helpful staff whom although busy fitted us in without a reservation. Best to book ahead. Food was freshly cooked and well presented and good value with a wide selection.

Great place to dine in Homer. Small but comfortable. Menu selection was very good, and we were served personally by the owner. Good wine selection as well.

This restaurant knows how to do Halibut. Moist and flavorful. They offer a finer dining in their evening menu but I was still able to get a halibut sandwich meal very reasonably. Staff is friendly. Interesting décor.

Fabulous ambiance and very funky decor both inside and outside. Servers were super nice and attentive without hovering. We both ordered the night specials which was a combo plate of halibut and salmon. My wife loved this dish and devoured all of it. I thought the salmon was a bit to "spicy" for my so sensitive taste buds. The halibut... More
