Any Good Breakfast Near Foley Square?

Nobody responded to my post about Lox & Bagel near Foley Square, so I am widening my search. Any good breakfast spots near Foley Square? I will be staying at W.Broadway & Chambers and walking to the Federal Courthouse, so any suggestions in the area would be most welcome.
Try Kitchennette on W. Broadway one block south of Chambers (I forget the name of the cross street). It's gotten some very bad reviews here, but I've eaten bbreakfast there a lot, and never been disappointed.
I work literally a stone's throw from where you'll be staying and unless I'm missing something, there just isn't a Barney Greengrass type of place around here. There's hope for you yet, though. You can get very good, very heavy comfort food meals at Kitchenette (corner of W.Broadway & Warren), and classic coffee shop fare at Ellen's Cafe (corner of Church & Chambers). Petite Abeille on West Broadway at Duane (I think) does a really good salmon omelette, but I'm not sure how early they open. There's also a Stage Deli on Vesey just past Broadway, but I haven't tried it.
Pork buns! (See the pork bun thread a ways down the Manhattan board (and the inquiry above)). Or noodles! Or any other Chinese breakfast -- Chinatown is immediately behind the courthouse, really the closest food of all to Foley Square (go down Worth Street to get there).
If that's not your thing, Bouley Bakery has a good simple breakfast of baked good, good coffee, and a really good fruit salad. Pricey at $9 (think how many pork buns that could buy...) but high quality and a surprisingly large amount of food. On W. Broadway, just above Chambers.
