Perhaps the most functional option of all is the kitchen island that also serves as a breakfast bar. Clever islands now feature stools that are stashed inside when not in use and end leaves that fold down to hide the stools. Use the island as a workspace, and then let people eat there when you’re not feeding the entire crew.
The Shaker design originated from a religious movement that began in the 1770s during the American colonial era. The design tends to avoid any flourishes of style in favor of a simple and functional aesthetic. The simple and clean lines of Shaker cabinets lend themselves to placement in modern or contemporary kitchen designs, despite their traditional origin.
Drop-leaf tables are good for a variety of reasons. Not only do they look great tucked against a wall with the leaves down, you can actually feed two people, one at either end, without extending them. They can serve as storage between meals, as well, for decorative items like placemats and candlesticks, or as a place to do homework, like a de facto island.
You'll need to allow a minimum of 7 feet to accommodate a small table and chairs, though 8 feet is better and 9 feet is optimum. (Nine feet allows for a 36" table and a 36" clearance for each chair.) Try to leave 48" of walking space around the table so nobody ends up knocking the orange juice glasses off the table.
