Last week, we announced a nationwide partnership with Postmates to make it easier for our guests to access delivery services during these unprecedented times. You can now order prescriptions, groceries, and food from local restaurants right to your Sonder. Continuing to do delivery or takeout is a great way to show support for local establishments.

We asked some of our city teams what their favorite restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, and breakfast spots were. Here is a list of their picks, most of which are currently available for delivery through Postmates.

And for first time users currently staying with Sonder, we’re waiving $100 of Postmates delivery fees for 30 days.

Note that in the current climate, hours and openings may change daily. This list was last updated the morning of April 10.
