It is not just a classic movie anymore – it can actually be your real life plan; you can finally have Breakfast at Tiffany’s now in the luxurious Holly Golightly way! It only took 56 years but hey, better late than never right? Audrey Hepburn would have been so elated to see this day and the many fans who will carry forward her legacy of having coffee with a croissant outside the iconic Tiffany & Co. flagship store in New York City.
Tiffany & Co. is proud to inaugurate The Blue Box Café on the fourth floor of its Fifth Avenue flagship this week designed by Reed Krakoff who also recently unveiled their “Everyday Objects” line. Tiffany & Co. is a celebrated name for opulent jewelry, but it has also been associated with breakfast since 1837 when Audrey’s famed character in the movie made it a daily ritual – this is the brand’s first real foray into the dining world. The Blue Box Café lives up to its name with the interiors completely done in the trademark Tiffany blue and white with hints of gold and silver to incorporate its glamorous history.
The Pinterest-perfect brasserie will serve an array of classic breakfast treats with the trademark Tiffany elegance. The popular “Breakfast at Tiffany” breakfast is priced at $29 and will come with coffee or tea, followed by a croissant, seasonal fruit and rounded out with choice of a buttermilk waffle, smoked salmon, bagel stack, truffle eggs, or avocado toast.

The $39 prix fixe lunch includes the Fifth Avenue salad, with Maine lobster, grapefruit and poppy seed dressing, and an olive-oil poached salmon, with caviar and smashed potatoes. The experience doesn’t end there, today’s Holly Golightlys have a lot more options – there is also a “Tiffany Tea” menu featuring teas by Bellocq, as well as a selection of finger sandwiches and baked delicacies. If you can’t have enough of Tiffany’s, now you don’t have to!
So go on and live out one of the most iconic pop-culture fantasies at Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Box Café – order a coffee, croissant and don’t forget to play Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer’s “Moon River” in the background – it’ll complement those pearls and black cat-eyed sunglasses perfectly while you look down on a gorgeous view of the Central Park.
