Business Profile

Camino

  • 3917 Grand Ave Oakland CA 94610

Other restaurants, such as Homestead, DopoCamino in Oakland, and Comal in Berkeley, have used this wage increase to re-format their entire wage structure. All four have eliminated tipping and have incorporated the average tip amount (around 20% of the total bill) to the line item charge for each dish on their menus. …

Each of Camino’s menus advertises its tip-less system in bold type. And the dishes themselves are significantly more expensive — more than 20% — than they were before the change. The increased item price goes directly to paying employees’ higher wages. … Moore admits that he did lose servers over the wage change.
