Calgary’s breakfast powerhouse OEB opening Vancouver location


Calgary is a breakfast town, and they’ve got the steady line-ups at several spots to prove it. One of the city’s most popular breakfast destinations is OEB, with three locations in YYC, a brand new one in Edmonton, and now one on the way for us lucky eaters in Vancouver.

OEB is sliding into Vancouver’s Yaletown neighbourhood and setting up their egg-centric eats at 1137 Marinaside Crescent in the space previously occupied by the Hurricane Grill.

The Hurricane Grill spent 10 years at the Marinaside address; their final day of service was October 27, 2018.

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 breakkie and lunch fare, too.

Launched by chef and owner Mauro Martina, OEB has been a big draw in Calgary (it easily goes on my recs for killer breakfast while in YYC), and is already drawing raves for their recent Edmonton debut.

OEB confirms with Vancouver Is Awesome via e-mail they are aiming to be open here in February 2019. Follow @oeb_breakfast on Instagram for updates.
