Having a literal breakfast at Tiffany's is a dream every girl has had since first watching Holly Golightly beam up at the iconic store's windows, coffee and croissant in hand.
And then comes the moment you realize that Tiffany is an expensive (and lovely) jewelry store, not a brunch spot—well, until now.
That's right. You can now have breakfast at Tiffany because the luxury retailer has opened the 'Blue Box Cafe'—the first of it's kind—at its flagship store. And if Holly Golightly were to get a chance to visit, she'd definitely want to Instagram it. On the fourth floor of Tiffany & Co.’s New York Fifth Avenue location is a cafe is all about re-imagining classic American dishes. And pretending you're Audrey Hepburn, of course.
The new cafe is like dining inside one of Tiffany's little blue boxes, with everything from the chairs to the walls being the store's iconic shade of turquoise.
And today's Golightly-wannabes won't have to be confined to one pastry option. Instead, the Blue Box Cafe will offer fans a set menu at $29 and $49 for tea, with options like truffled eggs, avocado toast or smoked salmon bagel with schmear. Lunch will set you back $39 and includes a starter and main course.
Fans can still, of course, buy Golightly's iconic croissant and coffee, but fancier options like Maine lobster salad and chicken club sandwiches are also on offer.
For birthdays and special occasions, customers can order a small cake—an edible Tiffany box with blue icing and the iconic white bow—for $36.
The cafe will sit on the store's luxury homeware floor, which sells everyday items with an over-the-top price. When you've finished breakfast Audrey Hepburn-style, you can marvel at $95 'paper' cups, $300 yo-yos, and $575 tin cans.
The Blue Box Cafe is known for its line-ups so next time you're in the Big Apple, make sure you plan accordingly.
