Homemade Cafe is your neighborhood diner serving classic, delicious breakfast and lunch fare in Berkeley. Stop by and try our home fries today!
The Homemade Cafe was opened in 1979 when previous owners Norm and Janet trekked cross country to pursue their dreams of opening a local diner in sunny California. In 35 years we've grown, laughed and cried with our neighborhood friends while carrying out our single mission - serving great food. In 2011, Norm and Janet sold the restaurant to long time employee Collin.
Having grown up a Berkeley kid, Collin grew up eating at Homemade and eventually got his first job as a busboy at the cafe. After learning how the ropes by working in every position from dishwasher to kitchen manager (and a brief hiatus at NYU) Collin is active in all day to day activites and is committed to the restaurant and the neighborhood.
