Family breakfasts come together quicker (and clean up faster) when you can pull up a stool to an island in the kitchen instead of setting a table. Here are five homes with ideal setups for meals in minutes.

At 380 West 12th St. in the West Village, this two-bedroom, one-bath co-op is on the market for $2 million. It has a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a wraparound counter. The south-facing private terrace seems pretty nice too. 

This four-bedroom, three-bath co-op at 100 Riverside Dr. on the Upper West Side has an open kitchen with white lacquer and blue wood cabinetry and Caesarstone marble counters, including a large breakfast bar with enough room for a family of four to have breakfast together. It's yours for $5.4 million.

The kitchen of this three-bedroom, five bath townhouse at 208 West 11th St. (listed at a tidy $11.295 million) looks out on a leafy garden and features a massive center island with plenty of space for serving up a meal. 

Finally, in West Chelsea, a four bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom penthouse loft at 532 West 22nd St. has a massive kitchen island with built-in cabinets. You'll need some serious cash for this one. It's renting for $20,000 a month.
