Say Cheese… and Cheeseless

Oakland’s best cheesy comfort-food restaurant even woos the vegans.

Welcome to the Homeroom of macaroni and cheese in Oakland’s Temescal neighborhood. Here, learn cheese, beer, and meat geography—from Cypress Grove (chevre) and Monterey (jack) to Grafton Village (cheddar) and Niman Ranch (chorizo). Eat your way through your lessons. The most popular couple may be Dungeness crab with havarti. Why bring a vegan to the cheese frontier? Homeroom’s dairyless version isn’t sloppy seconds.
