Scratch-made brunch, every weekend.

Reserve Brunch for Pickup or Delivery

Early to Rise is a counter-service weekend brunch destination in San Francisco’s Nob Hill that specializes in handmade bagels, small batch donuts, and a rotating featured special. We have limited outdoor seating that is available on a first come, first served basis.  

We have refreshing mimosas, small-batch wines, fresh-ground coffee and a host of homemade pantry items to liven up your fridge. You can schedule a pickup or delivery through the link to our online storefront (above) or stop by our counter. 

As the pandemic starts to wind down, we are excited to transition Early to Rise into a full-service restaurant. This will allow us to expand our scratch made ingredients into items like homemade bacon, French toast from our own challah and stunning composed fruit dishes inspired by the local market. If you’d like to stay up-to-date on these developments, signup for our newsletter mailing list below.

Thanks for checking us out, we look forward to cooking for you soon.

About US

Early to Rise offers the comfort and respite you deserve at the end of an intense week in the Bay. Bagels and English muffins hot from the kitchen. Hand-cut bacon and piles of buttery lox. Preserves that capture Northern California’s vibrant harvest. We want to be your go-to breakfast spot during these craaaaazy times.

Raised in South Carolina, Chef Andrew honed his craft in the renowned kitchen of Chef Michael Tusk at Quince Restaurant. There he developed the sensibility that drives his work—elevating essential ingredients through simple, thoughtfully crafted recipes. Andrew’s cuisine is also influenced by his time in Manhattan at Jean Georges and the Bar Room at the Modern.

We’re at the northeast corner of Jackson and Taylor Streets in San Francisco’s historic Nob Hill neighborhood, just three blocks north of Grace Cathedral.

We have two dedicated parking spaces right outside the restaurant on Jackson. If you are driving up the hill from Mason, they are at the end of the block on the right.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do "Brunch in a Bag" reservations work?

It’s simple – just follow the link, pick out what you want and show up at whatever time you reserve.We’ll have it ready for you. 

We keep it fresh! Having reserved times for pickup lets us hit a rhythm so that we can produce our menu throughout the day.

How is delivery different from pickup?

Well, the main thing is it's more expensive and makes us feel a little weird to pass off your meal to someone else. DoorDash charges extra fees to the tune of 20% plus $7 on top your order to delivery your meal. That said, the convenience is undeniable and we're excited to use this as a powerful tool to bring our brunch all over San Francisco.

Okay, I'll bite. What's a "Brunch in a Bag"?

On its own, a complete meal for two(ish). They are easy to combine with our pantry items (or each other) to mastermind your own brunch-straveganza.

What happens if I'm late?

No worries! We’ll hold your order for you for about 15 minutes, then we’ll break it down so that the cold items can stay refrigerated. Whenever you make it over, we’ll reassemble your order.

Can I come early?

Absolutely. There are several items we only sell in person and are not available online. Have a cup of coffee (or a mimosa!) and peruse the donut flavors and house-made pantry goods while we get your order ready.

Can I cancel or change my order?

Definitely, as long as it’s the day before. For reasons you can imagine, our staff is SMALL right now and won’t be able to answers calls or emails once we start working (which is, true to our name, very early). We will honor cancelations made up to midnight one day before the order.

What did you do before the pandemic?

So many things! But professionally, we were a family-style restaurant that specialized in taking a deep dive into the classic breakfast.  We made (and continue to make) every component of our meals from scratch. We love and miss the feeling of a full dining room, but we’re excited to have found ways to put that same smile on your face in a new way. It is, perhaps, more needed these days.

Can you accommodate vegetarians and other special diets?

Most definitely. As long as we have advance notice, we can adjust for most special diets. We tried our best to write a menu that would include solid option for most dietary restrictions, but if there’s something more we can do, let us know. There is a box to fill out when you make your reservation.
