World cup locations

Well world cup is almost upon us, which means what to a bunch of foodies? BREAKFAST/BRUNCH. I am not a breakfast connoisseur so I don't really know what typical foreign breakfasts are. But I am a soccer fan (futball), and since the games are at 4:30, 7:00 and 11 am now is the perfect time to indulge my pallette. So I spend a week gathering locatons that are open during the world cup and am willing to share with everyone in hopes that a lot more foreigners will be there to rally behind their squad (and buy me a pint too!)

So since I've provided the locations Im hoping people can let me know what a typical country's breakfast consists of. Also if you can fill in the blanks on any other locations that will host specific countries I am missing let me know.

    1. re: tangeyj

      Anyone know of places where I can get a Chinese breakfast (soymilk/donut, congee, dim sum) or Mexican and watch the games? I'm more interested in the low down places where I can nurse a glass of soymilk or horchata and watch the games with some cranky locals.

      1. re: tdonline

        I can't speak for where you'd find the Chinese or Mexican breakfast option w/the game, but I'm quite sure you'll find plenty of cranky locals where ever you go.... ;)

        1. re: tdonline

          try the Blue Goose Lounge for the low down places & comfort sitting. Was there for USA-England game. Very cool. They had drink special prices & served delicious king english breakfast and bacon wrapped hot dogs. Besides, how can you say no to $4 jameson shots??

          Adddress is 5201 W Sunset Blvd Los Angeles CA. They are open for all the 64 games, showing LIVE.

      2. For England, you can add Cock 'n' Bull in Venice. Also, all Korean games will be shown at the Staples Center.

        BTW guys, this is off topic, but can we agree not to post spoilers in this or any World Cup LA thread? A lot of us TIVO/download games. Thanks -AK

        Staples Center
        1111 S Figueroa St Ste 3100, Los Angeles, CA 90015

        1. Le Saint Amour in Culver City (French) shows all the 11 AM games, and they serve a lunch special (1 soup or salad + 1 main + 1 glass of wine) rather than a breakfast.

          And Bulgarini Gelato (Italy) in Altadena is open and shows ALL the games even the 4.30 AM ones and they will serve pastries and I think espresso

          Bulgarini Gelato
          749 E Altadena Dr, Altadena, CA 91001

          1. The Fox and Hounds Pub only requires tickets as placeholders. the money for the ticket gets deducted from your bill, so admission ends up being free.

            1. The 1739 Public House in Los Feliz is opening at 7 am every day and serving breakfast. The food isn't spectacular but obviously that's not what people are there for.
