Irish Breakfast on Marathon route?

I'm hoping to get an early start on Patriots Day. My plan, as of now, is An Tua Nua, which has a fantastic location right on the Marathon route, as well as a Sox pre-game crowd, which is always a great atmosphere.

On the other hand, the food is...meh. It's fine, but nothing special. Is there anywhere on Beacon that would do a good Irish Breakfast on a holiday monday morning? Ideally it would have 2 TVs (marathon and Sox), and some good gameday atmosphere.
