Am I correct in thinking you would use "die Leute" 99% of the time over "die Personen" in sentences like this one ?

I'd say so; Personen sounds unnatural here.

Die Leute Fruhstucken? Isn't this a much better sentence?

Is there a difference between "Personen" and "Menschen"?

"Menschen" is more like "mankind" or "human beings"
