World Cup 2010 Watching and Eating Venues?
Inspired by the Union Square recommendations here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7127....
Saul's Deli in Berkeley is showing the 7 AM starts with sound and the lunchtime games with subtitles...no early morning games though. Have some of the housemade sodas...the fruit ones are delightful, I want to try the celery one day. http://saulsdeli.com/deli/pressevents/
Ricky's Sports Theater and Grill in San Leandro is open for all the games including the 4 AM ones. I saw the A's exhibition games from Japan here a couple of seasons ago and it was a great early morning experience....very nice omelets and good coffee. http://www.rickys.com/about/world_cup...

Nino's in Berkeley will only be showing the Brazil matches on their new HD set.
Napper Tandy in the Mission has their huge Dutch flag, as well as a banner about World Cup matches.
SFGate has an article at http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/w...
My favorite tidbit: "As we love the French and Thierry Henry at the moment, we are doing a promotion for any team that scores against France in the World Cup. O'Neills will buy you a pint during that game. Hope all is well and Go USA!"

The Chron link says Brennan's will show games and serve breakfast starting at 6 a.m.
The new Brennan's location in the old Berkeley train station is clean, family friendly and lots of LCD TVs. I've never had breakfast there but imagine it must be like their regular menu - hof brau. It'll probably be reasonably priced. For a while I think the hof brau section was run by a Brazilian family which might help explain the special hours.
