My mum and aunt are going to NY. Guess who needs to do the planning?

Hello chowhounders. It has been been a while since my last post.

My mum and aunt are going to NY for 3 days and asked me for some recommendations. A little bit of background: they are looking for a relaxed atmosphere with no need to dress up type of place. Both ladies are in their early 60s and they are pretty active. They are staying near Bryant Park and probably will not adventure far from this area for dinner.
They are taking the bus from Boston and it is my aunt's first time in NY.

Here is the planning so far:
16th July - Arrive in NY around 11am
Lunch at Shake Shack or Maison Kayser
Walk around Rockefeller center and Central Park
Afternoon coffee at Lady M (Bryant Park) - what is good?
Dinner Reservation booked for 8pm Toloache

17th July
Walk to Eataly for coffee and croissant. Check out flat iron building
Go to Washington Square by train
Maybe lunch at Russ & Daughters?
Go to Whitehall Terminal for the ferry.
Hang out at Battery Park, Charging Bull.
Where should they go for afternoon tea?
Dinner at Mudville 9

18th July
Maybe breakfast at or near Central station? Zucker's?
Lunch 12.30: Booked at Balthazar
Will probably need to pack something for the bus ride back to Boston
Go back to Boston

What do you think? I have not included pizza in the itinerary but I am sure they would love to have some. Last year I went to Joe's Pizza and it was OK but with the limited amount of time not sure where would be a good place to go.

Thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Shake Shack - Upper East Side,
Eataly NYC Flatiron,
