When you think back to your childhood and remember your lunches what do you think of? Bologna and mayo sandwiches? PB&J’s? Or what about that cheesy goodness that came from an orange powder in a blue box? Ding Ding! I loved mac & cheese growing up. What made it taste even better was cut up hot dogs and ketchup, yes ketchup.
Now, that I am all grown up, or at least that’s what they tell me, I still love mac & cheese but just not out of that blue box. My friend from class introduced me to a restaurant that is mac & cheese for adults, a more mature version of mac & cheese. The menu had mac & cheese dishes with goat cheese, or bacon and garlic, it even had one with hot dogs and crumbled potato chips -YUM!
Homeroom is a super cute restaurant. It is a great little neighborhood spot, but also worth the drive. It is non-pretentious and inviting. And most importantly, it was delicious!
Pictured above: The outside of homeroom. We did have about a 10 minute wait but well worth it. This was on a Friday afternoon, I imagine the wait to be longer on the weekend or on a cold winter’s evening. Mac & cheese = comfort all the way!
Pictured above: homeroom is located in Oakland, California on the corner of Shafter and 40th.
Pictured above: The menu. A great selection of mac & cheese dishes, and though mac & cheese is their speciality they offer other dishes as well. They have sandwiches, salads, veggies and more.
