How do reservations work?
Early to Rise is a family-style, ticketed brunch event. We open our doors five minutes before the meal starts and begin serving promptly at the published time. Seating is first come, first served. Every guest requiring a seat must have a ticket (a small child sitting on your lap does not need a ticket).
Are you good for large parties?
Yes! Our communal seating makes it easy to book large groups. If you’re coming with a group of six or more, please email us in advance and we will block off seats for you. In many cases you will have your own table.
How do I make sure that my friends and I can sit together?
Come early! If you’re coming in a group smaller than six, make sure to arrive when we open the doors (5 minutes before the meal starts) to get a block of seats next to each other.
What happens if I’m late?
You can join our meal at any point you wish, but showing up late means missing out on what we served before you arrived. Also, if you’re coming with a group, we can’t guarantee that you’ll be seated together.
Can I come early?
Absolutely. We encourage early arrivals to help ensure whole parties are seated with one another. We do keep our doors closed until five minutes before the start of the meal to allow us to prepare for the seating. Of course we make exceptions for guests who have difficulty standing and in cases of inclement weather.
Can I cancel?
Cancellations may be made for a full refund up to 48 hours before the start of your meal. One day before, we’ll give you a 50% credit towards your next booking with us. Same-day cancellations forfeit the cost of the ticket entirely.
We do need more notice for big groups - parties of 10 or more need to cancel a week or more in advance for a full refund. A 50% credit will be issued up to 48 hours before the meal and we will not issue any refund past that.
Do you take walk-ins?
We do sometimes have extra tickets which are available at the door. However, we often sell out, so pick a date and buy a ticket!
Can you accommodate vegetarians and other special diets?
Most definitely. As long as we have advance notice we can adjust for almost any special diet. Just send us a brief message so we can plan for your specific needs and provide you the best experience.
Can I take food home?
Early to Rise donates its leftovers to the needy and does not allow meals to go.
