When you serve epic all-day breakfast dishes, it only makes sense to open a location with the name "Amazing" in it, and that's just what's happening with OEB Breakfast Co – which has officially opened its doors.
The Calgary-based veteran spot known for its creative and crave-worthy brunch eats has set up shop at Burnaby's Amazing Brentwood.
But even though it hasn’t been open long, it’s still managed to rake in a series of awards.
The biggest award was being named as “best breakfast” in Burnaby in the NOW newspaper’s annual A-List awards – voted on by our readers. The readers also named it as “best atmosphere” and “best new restaurant” so clearly diners are digging this place.
OEB, which stands for Over Easy Breakfast, is all about that all-day breakfast lifestyle. They feature some seriously over-the-top creations, too, including their signature "Soul in a Bowl." They've got potatoes fried in duck fat, breakfast poutine, all the epic pancakes and French Toast you can imagine, as well as more traditional straightforward brekkie and lunch fare, too.
The restaurant uses as much local product as possible in creating its array of eye-catching dishes; they have partnered with Arctic Meats in Port Coquitlam to source all-natural, premium sausages and poultry, and Cubic Farms in Langley for fresh microgreens, and you'll spot lots of B.C. brews and bottles on the beer and wine list.
“We care about where the food comes from and what happens to it before it hits the table,” said Mauro Martina, owner and founder of OEB, in a media release.
The egg-centric eatery always works the versatile egg into its decor, and that will be the case at Brentwood. The 2,200-square-foot space, which seats 72 inside and 25 on the patio at full capacity, boasts high windows to bring in maximum natural light, an open kitchen, and "custom live pantries" in the dining room. Designed by Janks Design Group, the new OEB will also have something for the shutterbugs: A "Fill the Soul" Instagram wall, and lots of key decor touches like the restaurant's signature egg lights, and exclusive to Brentwood, a morning farm-themed 3D paper art installation.
“Breakfast means so much more to me than just the first meal of the day,” added Martina. “It’s about elevating the whole breakfast experience. That’s what OEB is all about.”
OEB's first B.C. location opened in May 2018 in Vancouver along the waterfront in Yaletown. The brand began over a decade ago in Alberta, and now has multiple locations across Western Canada.
