OEB Breakfast Co. owner and founder Mauro Martina believes breakfast means so much more than the first meal of the day. The award-winning Canadian concept puts a creative spin on breakfast classics, offering inventive eats like Nutella French toast and blue crab eggs Benedict. OEB is opening its first U.S. location in Scottsdale next month.
“It’s about elevating the whole breakfast experience,” Martina says. “That’s what OEB is all about.”
The restaurant will be located on the southeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Chauncey Lane. The 2,900-square-foot space will seat 84 inside and 18 on the spacious patio. In addition to inspired breakfast fare, OEB will feature a full-service bar slinging hand-crafted cocktails, local beer and Frizzante on tap.
Martina has worked at Michelin Star restaurants with some of the most revered chefs in the industry. He spent his childhood in Italy and moved to Canada in 1992. He opened the first OEB location in Calgary in 2009, and now has 6 locations throughout Canada.
The chef believes the best food comes from fresh ingredients sourced straight from farmers. OEB has partnered with Texas-based Vital Farms for its Scottsdale location.
“We care about where the food comes from and what happens to it before it hits the table,” Martina says.
What else is on the table? A bevy of breakfast poutines made with duck fat fried herb potatoes, breakfast burgers, Belgian waffles, creative crêpes and scrumptious scrambles, all made with top-notch ingredients.
“There are not too many places out there that have truffles on the menu or sturgeon caviar and duck and scallops,” Martina says. “Some think fine-dining, but I think people can have all of that for breakfast.”
