Depending on how much longer is required to dock with ISS you could almost order takeout from space and get it reasonably quick. Maybe not within the half-hour guarantee but certainly within your typical delivery time.

Does it take long to catch up to the ISS? Does anyone know?

about ~30 times around earth (around 2 days as Tamsin already mentioned). there is a faster way, though, but its more difficult to achive:
