OEB is Ready to Hatch!

Breakfast’s ready! U/D’s highly anticipated breakfast hot spot, OEB is bringing its sizzle to the community and is anticipating to open on the first week of December.

This welcome newcomer to NW Calgary’s culinary scene is known for its farm-to-table elevated breakfast eats, quirky interior concepts, and an uplifting dining experience like no other.

OEB is a homegrown success story.

After opening its first shop in 2009, OEB now has locations across Canada, including in downtown Calgary, Bridgeland and Mission, and has expanded into the US. 

Mauro Martina, Chef and Founder of OEB Breakfast Co. is a long time Northwest Calgary resident, whose love for great flavours and desire to elevate breakfast led him to establish OEB.

Believing breakfast should be bolstered by artistry and passion, OEB pushes the culinary boundaries of breakfast food to bring the best in quality and craftsmanship.

What to Order from a Soul-Full Menu!

Inspired by the highest quality, sustainably sourced ingredients, The OEB menu is purposeful, filled with items that simply can’t be made at home, balanced by lighter fare and vegan options.

“As OEB grows we continue to focus on sourcing ingredients from outstanding suppliers that understand crafting a dining experience is more than just eating tasty food,” says Chef Mauro.

“We want to create a connection with everything we bring in. From our butchers and egg farms to artisan bakers, OEB is unique in its offerings, and ensuring each ingredient is grown, sourced and treated with care is essential to our approach.”

All the eggs at OEB come from their own flax fed, free-run flock of hens that produce a large dark yolk, Omega-3 enriched egg, delivering a difference one can truly taste. All meats served are gluten-free, with sausages made using a proprietary recipe created in partnership with local butchers. Bread is artisan-made and 100% organic, made using Canadian grown and milled, GMO-free flour. 

OEB chooses to use duck fat in the cooking of non vegan options, as it is a more stable oil with a higher smoking point that provides health benefits and superior flavour. 

Menu highlights include Pierogies and Duck with hardwood smoked bacon, Butter Poached Lobster and Shrimp Crêpe with optional organic sturgeon caviar, and the Classic Breakfast offering a choice of blueberry chicken bangers, or maple pork bangers. ‘Meatless to Say’, ‘Holy Crab’, ‘Chasing Chickens’ and ‘The Notorious B.I.T.’ are just some of the other appetizing choices on OEB’s extensive menu. 

Cause for a toast? A full-service bar offers breakfast wine and bubbles, local draft beers, and brunch inspired cocktails.

Designed to Delight

Understanding that breakfast is the best place for honest, good connection, there is heart and integrity behind the quick, well-executed service at OEB. Patrons can immerse themselves in not only good food and conversation, but in a vibe that makes the humdrum everyday world feel far, far away. Employees take the initiative to get to know guests personally and look forward to welcoming the University District community to this breakfast joint like no other. 

Characterized as minimalist, experimental, innovative and quirky, OEB is known for pushing design boundaries when creating interiors that are as functional as they are creative.

With its open concept kitchen, grand bar, industrial chic design and distinctive OEB flair, the University District location revels in opulence. A complex, custom metal centrepiece featuring chickens woven into a hidden Easter egg, covers thirty percent of the ceiling and seating area. At 2900 sq. ft, it seats 75 inside, with an enclosed, heated patio that seats 45 soon to follow. 

Chef Mauro says that he is particularly pleased that upon opening, OEB in the University District will debut several new inventive creations. 

“While we have been humbled to receive such an amazing welcome throughout all our openings over the past several years, Calgary is home, and it has us beyond excited to be opening in the city’s Northwest. We can’t wait to join the University District community and look forward to serving both returning guests and those that have not had the opportunity to enjoy our elevated brunch offerings just yet!” 

University District is excited to welcome OEB to the community. Read all about their soulful breakfast fare! Once open, OEB University District will be open from 7:30 am to 2:45 pm daily. Connect with OEB on Facebook and InstagramLearn more about OEB at eatoeb.com. See you for breakfast!
