Homeroom Mac & Cheese Opens at Local Kitchens in Lafayette

The Oakland comfort food restaurant Homeroom has opened a new satellite location at Local Kitchens in Lafayette. Anyone nearby can order from the popular restaurant, either using the Local Kitchens app or delivery services such as DoorDash or Uber Eats.

Homeroom made a name for itself by creating a restaurant entirely based on mac & cheese. Their decadent and delicious dishes include additions like bacon, spicy mac & cheese, and much more.

Previously, you’d have to order from the original Homeroom location in Oakland. The new partnership with Local Kitchens brings Homeroom’s food to a broader swath of the East Bay.

I’ve eaten at the original Homeroom, and I can vouch for its deliciousness. The mac & cheese is denser and creamier than anything you find in a box, and the fact that they specialize in just mac & cheese really shows in the creativity of the menu.

The Homeroom menu at Local Kitchens includes their classic Mac, but also specialties like Elote Mac, Garlicky Bacon Mac, Buffalo Chicken Mac, Gilroy Garlic Mac, and more.

For another great Elote option, check out the Chicken Elote Bowl at Mendocino Farms. Apparently, this flavor is really trending!

The fancy mac & cheese dishes are nice, but I think that the classic Mac at Homeroom, which is made with a five year aged cheddar cheese, is one of the best choices.

Want to try the new Homeroom mac & cheese offerings at Local Kitchens for yourself? Use my code “THOMAS” at checkout in the Local Kitchens app, and you’ll get five dollars off your first order.
