Good breakfast place near W81st

My family of four (kids are 14 & 11) will be staying at the Excelsior Hotel on West 81st. A Google search doesn't suggest too many breakfast options nearby so I would be glad of any suggestions.

We are talking a quickish (20-30min), ideally sit-down, breakfast of something in the range from fruit salad to pancakes, or maybe bacon and eggs, to get us started on our day.

A classic American diner would be great.

Good coffee would be a bonus (were talking of the cappuccino/ latte type not that watery stuff !)

Sarabeth's is a block away. Little more upscale than a diner.

Good Enough to Eat is at 520 Columbus (at W 85th). Great all-American comfort food.

Hey WinstonSydney10:-) You've got Zabar's café right on the corner at 80th and Broadway;-) Place is packed in the mornings.. lots of folks grabbing coffee, take out.. communal seating.. as popular as it gets;-) There's Café 82 practically across the Street, Artie's Deli, Café on Broadway, French Roast, Café Lalo and these are only within a 4 blocks radius.. and only on/off Broadway;-) Dozens of places to include those on Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues;-) Take a look at menupages.com/ and check the West 80's .. to the left on the bottom, you'll find a link for breakfast only;-) EnJOY!

+++++++ a squillion for Zabars... Not necessarily what you're asking for vis great coffee, but worth at least one visit. Also worth visiting the wonderful shop to collect picnic items for a day in the park and the upstairs kitchen/dining ware section for lovely presents for yourselves and friends/family back home.
