Macaroni and cheese has always been one of my favorite foods. Whether I need my ma to celebrate an great week or to comfort me when I'm feeling blue, creamy cheesy pasta is the way to go. This restaurant totally gets the obsessive M&C love! I've been to Homeroom several times - with both coworkers and family, and it's always awesome.
The atmosphere is friendly and cool - just what you'd expect for a Bay Area eatery. Oakland really is the up-and-coming area for culture, food, and innovation. My very loud, very boisterous family had my moving away dinner at Homeroom knowing that a menu full of macaroni and cheese options would be right up everyone's alleys.
My favorite is the Trailer Mac, because duh! hotdogs and mac & cheese belong together! My partner is partial to the Gilroy, because he adds garlic to everything (yes, kissing him is an experience!); and he was very happy with my suggestion that he add bacon. We even had some leftovers to take home with us, and we were pleasantly surprised that they held up so well with our microwave re-heating regimen - I think the waitress recommended the oven, but who's got time for that?!
Definitely check out this place - it's casual, it's fun, and it's got a lot of plucky attitude. I would say it is worth the drive if you are from the further East Bay, so don't miss out!
