Serving up the world’s best mac+cheese in Oakland, CA.
Meet the Owner- The story of Homeroom began one rainy night when Erin Wade got a sudden craving for mac and cheese. Coming home from a long day as a lawyer, she realized that there was no restaurant she could go to that would have mac and cheese as delicious as the one she grew up eating—so she pulled up her dad’s family recipe and started cooking. Her craving, and the warm feeling that came with satisfying it, made her realize that she wanted to open the kind of restaurant she wished she could’ve gone to that night: a friendly, familiar place serving up the best mac and cheese on earth. Homeroom finally opened on Valentine’s Day 2011. Since then, it’s become a lot more than a favorite local restaurant: it employs a kick-butt, diverse team of nearly 100, and to this day still makes every mac and cheese to order using Erin’s original family recipe.
