Our Story

Sometimes the smartest ideas are the simplest. Eggs from the best farmers, on the best bread, made to order by the best people… But fast, really fast.

It's Bigger Than Breakfast

We believe a great breakfast lays the foundation for a great day and one by one these days add up to a great life. That's why we take your breakfast seriously.

We start with impeccably fresh ingredients from local farms and bakers, then prepare every sandwich and omelet fresh to order. Oh, and we do it fast enough to be a part of your morning routine. We make the quality, flavors, and excitement of fine-dining accessible on your way to work.

Eastman started as an idea, became a food truck in 2013, and within three years has expanded to three full service locations throughout Chicago. We created an app that's perfecting location-based ordering to make your morning seamless, start to finish. And we're transforming the way Chicago thinks about mornings. This thing we're doing, it's much bigger than breakfast.

Why Eggs?

They're high in protein, filling, and packed with vitamins and minerals. The perfect way to start a day!

Freshness Matters

Grocery store eggs are typically 30-60 days old when you buy them. Ours are never more than 14 days. That means they retain more nutrients, a brighter yolk, and unbeatable flavor!

Where we get them

Our eggs come from Slagel Family Farms in Fairbury, Illinois. They're antibiotic, hormone, and cage free. We get them just days after they're laid, making them the freshest out there.

Our Breads

We offer two bread options, a Ciabatta Roll by Red Hen Bread, and a Scratch Biscuit made in our stores. Both are baked fresh by hand everyday.

Our Ciabatta

Red Hen's Ciabatta is the best out there right now. It rises for 14 hours making it extra light and gives it a flavor that adds a delicious complexity to even the simplest sandwiches.

Our Biscuit

Our Pastry Chef, Stella Fuscone developed our biscuit recipe. It is specifically designed to perfectly compliment the flavors and textures of our Slagel Eggs and White Cheddar.

Our Drip Coffee?

Our basic Drip Coffee is a blend of beans from Santa Isabel, Guatamala, Caupcas, Honduras, and Plantanares, Honduras. The three combine for a beautiful round, herbal flavor with a hint of natural sweetness.

Our Iced Coffee

Our Iced Coffee is a full bodied single origin from El Molino, El Salvador with a warm acidity that's beautiful berry aromatics.

Where We get the Beans

We partner with Irving Farm Coffee Roasters. They source the best beans in the world and go beyond industry practice to build fair and ethical relationships with each of their farmers.
