Bi-Rite Catering Platters
“The most constant comment I heard was, “This is delicious!” and, “Where does this come from?” – Carol
How to Order
How can I place my order?
When is the deadline to place my order?
Because we make everything from scratch, please note that orders need to be placed before 3 p.m. two days in advance. We also require a credit card number to guarantee the order. Orders are charged the day prior to delivery or pick-up.
How much should I order?
Our menu provides an approximate number of servings in each dish. For hors d’oeuvres, count on about 3 pieces/items per guest per hour. In addition, you should consider whether your event coincides with a mealtime, or if alcohol will be served; in either of these situations guests are likely to eat more. We’re happy to help you with quantities once we understand a bit more about your event.
When and where can I pick up my order?
- Bi-Rite Market, 3639 18th St.: Orders can be picked up daily during business hours – 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Bi-Rite Divisadero, 550 Divisadero St.: Orders can be picked up daily from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
At either location, please ask for your order at the Deli Counter or with a Manager on duty. Please allow 10 to 15 minutes for us to gather your order and bring the items out to you outside the market.
What are my delivery options?
We can deliver to your home, office, or event venue. Delivery is generally available between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. within the city of San Francisco. The delivery fee will be quoted at the time of order.
How will my food arrive?
Our food is presented on recyclable platters (for items designed to be served cold or at room temperature) or on oven-safe aluminum platters (for items that require heating). If you prefer to serve on your own platters, we can pack most items in boxes for easier transport.
What if I need to cancel?
You may increase, decrease or cancel your order up to 2 days prior to the pick-up or delivery date (3 p.m. is the cut-off each day). Orders canceled with less than 2 days notice will be subject to a fee of 50% of the order total, and less than 24 hours notice will be subject to a fee of 75% of the order total.
Does Bi-Rite provide plates? Forks? Coffee? Crystal Champagne flutes?
Yes to forks and plates – no to the champagne flutes. We exclusively use biodegradable plates, utensils, cups and napkins for our pick-up or drop-off catering service. We charge a nominal fee per setting. Please tell us what you need and we’re happy to include it with your order. We can also provide disposable serving utensils upon request.
We’re also able to provide you with coffee service for your event! Please inquire when you place your order.
