Class 302 Taiwanese Cafe

18090 Culver Drive Irvine, CA 92612 | Irvine | 949-552-0555

Location Description:

You’re sitting in a wooden school desk. There’s a cubbyhole for stowing your books and an indentation carved at the top so that your pencil doesn’t roll off the edge. Above you, on a large green chalkboard are scribbled Mandarin characters and cartoons. Bright construction-paper posters and various kiddie-toy bric-a-brac are stapled to the walls. Your server wears knee-high black stockings, a pleated skirt and a green schoolgirl uniform. The meal she just dropped off is in an honest-to-goodness lunch tin. You are in Class 302, the first Orange County sequel of the hit Rowland Heights eatery that has stumbled into a previously untapped market: people who have fond memories of their Taiwanese grade-school experience and want to relive it in a restaurant.
