Many, many Vancouver restaurants and bars are opening early (9a.m. or earlier since the matches typically start at 18:00 German time) so that people can watch a World Cup 2006 match and eat at the same time.
For example Taco Mexio Rico (604 688 7426) will be open for breakfast when Mexico plays. As well, Casa Verde at 3532 Commercial Street, 604 876-7647 will be open for breakfast when Portugal plays. As always, we recommend calling these small family run "hole in the wall" restaurants beforehand to make sure that they are indeed open! Yum! I wish I was a soccer fan and had time to check these breakfasts out!
