For decades, Breakfast at Tiffany’s has been an iconic film, conjuring up classic images of New York City’s glamorous side, perpetuated by Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. Until recently, the whole concept of “having breakfast at Tiffany’s” was one that existed only in the hit Hollywood film. With the opening of The Blue Box Café, however, New Yorkers and Big Apple visitors can now experience the real thing.
Located on the fourth floor of the Tiffany & Co. flagship store on Fifth Avenue, The Blue Box Café offers an immersive experience into the world of Tiffany’s. The interior is a beautiful example of attention to detail, with a staircase featuring a light fixture created by Paris-based designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, walls and ceilings colored in signature Tiffany blue, and sectioned displays of various Tiffany & Co. collections.
What’s on the menu? A lineup of American classics and signature New York dishes made from regionally-sourced ingredients. Enjoy breakfast at Tiffany’s with a prix fixe menu of croissants, seasonal fruit and berries, and entrée options like smoked salmon bagels, truffle eggs, vegan avocado toast, and buttermilk waffles. It’s an ideal way to begin a busy day filled with wedding dress shopping. Alternatively, treat your bridal party to a Blue Box Café lunch with elegant fare such as black bass crudo, a “Fifth Avenue Salad” with lobster, or an olive oil poached salmon with Osetra caviar.
For a particularly posh afternoon break during the wedding planning process, indulge in the Blue Box Café’s elegant Tiffany Tea – an afternoon tea service with a combination of traditional and modern finger foods. Afternoon tea at Tiffany’s includes herbed chicken salad, smoked salmon and cream cheese, and cucumber goat cheese sandwiches, along with a selection of sweets like blue box petits fours, coconut brownies, lemon jelly squares, and scones.
From the place settings to the overall ambiance, you’ll love your time spent dining at one of the world’s most famous stores.
