50-cent breakfast at Guisados and 4-cent sangria at La Grande Orange in Pasadena

Cheap Fourth of July eats? Guisados Boyle Heights offers 50-cent breakfast items from 8 to 11 a.m. Friday

Guisados in Boyle Heights is opening Friday from 8 to 11 a.m. for a special test run of the restaurant's future breakfast menu. The restaurant, known for its hand-made tortillas and stewed meats, is planning on serving breakfast at its soon-to-open location in downtown. Guisados made the announcement on Instagram by posting a photo of a fried egg, but no details were given on what breakfast items would be offered. However, the post did say all items would be sold for 50 cents each. When Guisados cofounder Armando De La Torre spoke with The Times' Betty Hallock in January, he mentioned home-style chorizo con huevos and more egg dishes and tacos on hand-made tortillas as possible breakfast items. Guisados will also be testing its Stumptown cold brew horchata Friday. 2100 E. Cesar Chavez Ave., Los Angeles, (323) 264-7201, www.guisados.co.

La Grand Orange Cafe in Pasadena and its adjacent Luggage Room Pizzeria are offering 4-cent sangria Friday. Each customer is welcome to enjoy one small glass of the beverage at the special price. The Luggage Room will open for lunch at noon and La Grande Orange Cafe will open at 11 a.m. The restuarant's white sangria was featured in a Los Angeles Times Culinary SOS with the full recipe, which includes Presidente brandy, dry white wine, orange juice, Triple Sec, sugar, vanilla extract, orange slices, apple slices and grapes. 260 S. Raymond Ave., Pasadena, (626) 356-4444, www.lgostationcafe.com.
