My 7 year old has been making her own breakfast since she was 6. Sometimes, because she is little, she needs help pouring the milk (if the carton is a full one), but she can operate the toaster, butter it, etc. I can't remember when my other kids started making their own breakfasts, but it would have been around much the same age.

I used to make my own breakfast at 8 years, I'm teaching my daughter to be independent (she will be 2 in a few months) she can get food for herself (cereal/fruit/bread). If it requires using the stove (eggs/bacon or something) I would say wait or be right there to supervise.

If her co-ordination were better, my kid would be making her own breakfast by now (she's 7 with delayed fine motor skills due to her Autism). When I was 6, I was getting my own bowl of cereal/oatmeal or toast in the morning.
