About Us


Since 1993, our parents have owned and operated a family style restaurant called the Inn Kensington Restaurant. 25 years later, us four siblings, as alumni of El Cerrito High School and Portola Middle School (now known as Fred T. Korematsu Middle School), are hoping to provide the El Cerrito and Richmond neighborhoods with the same sense of friendly and familial community in our food, service, and restaurant. We hope this location can serve as a place where people can enjoy a home style meal with their friends and family, or a warm cup of coffee while reading their favorite book.

Our sister restaurant has been open for over 35 years in Kensington and has served many dedicated customers to this day. We’re thrilled to have the chance to share this relationship with our community here in El Cerrito and Richmond. We are all excited to meet you as it is our privilege to serve you and your family here at H&J’s Restaurant.
