Outstanding people. Embracing evolution. Bold food integrity.
These three principles, which coincidentally form the restaurant’s name, are what separate OEB Breakfast Co. from other breakfast spots. That and the company’s recent Best New Restaurant win in the Straight’s Best of Vancouver (BOV) readers’ choice awards.
Hailing from Italy, talented Chef and Founder Mauro Martina originally opened a farm-to-table-style breakfast restaurant in Calgary. By using locally sourced, premium ingredients combined with his artistry and passion, he creates traditional—and some rather untraditional—breakfast and brunch dishes.
The French Toast Trifle features whipped peaks of torched French meringue, tangy lemon curd, and fresh seasonal berries sitting upon a thick slice of brioche bread.
For those with a taste for the savoury, opting for one of the 11 breakfast poutine variations like the “Get Shorty Rib Poutine”, or the “Duck Leg & Waffle”, is a wise choice. Side plates of duck fat fried herbed potatoes, old fashioned shaved rosemary ham and heirloom tomatoes are also offered.
If guests find it hard to choose from the eclectic menu, friendly and knowledgeable servers will gladly help with the decision process. In the end, Martina’s unique, creative, and carefully crafted menu is sure to have something that will satisfy every hungry guest.
The modern and cozy atmosphere of the OEB Yaletown location (1137 Marinaside Crescent) creates the perfect ambience for an early family breakfast or a boozy brunch with a group of friends. For genuine foodies, the menu dares customers to add organic sturgeon caviar to dishes like the “Laks & Laks of Bagel”, which has smoked-salmon and herbed-cream-cheese.
With multiple locations in Canada and one opening soon in Arizona, Martina is continuing to spread the OEB philosophy of “learn, teach, and inspire” while supporting local farms and businesses.
OEB truly elevates the classic brunch experience by making each plate a work of art and by pushing culinary boundaries. One thing is certain: OEB’s customers will continue to leave with full souls, full bellies, and unbuttoned pants.
