In the iconic movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly eats a croissant outside the famous Tiffany & Co. jewelry store while gazing longingly at the merchandise through the window.
While she never got to have a proper breakfast inside Tiffany’s, now you can: The Blue Box Cafe is opening on Nov. 10 on the fourth floor of the Tiffany & Co. flagship store, located at 727 Fifth Avenue in New York City.
The menu is in line with the brand’s reputation for luxury. For $29, you can nosh on avocado toast, truffled eggs or a smoked salmon bagel with schmear. For lunch, a flat $39 will get you a starter and main course. The New York-themed menu will change with the seasons but some sample offerings include the “Fifth Avenue Salad,” which features lobster and avocado and the C.L.T. sandwich, which stands for both creator “Charles Lewis Tiffany” and chicken, lettuce and tomato.
The fourth floor of Tiffany’s, where the cafe is located, is home to the store’s luxury home and accessories collection. It will overlook Fifth Avenue and nearby Central Park.
“The café is yet another reason to visit our new fourth floor, and we hope it will draw customers up to experience the artfully composed home of Tiffany’s new luxury home and accessories collection of elevated everyday objects,” Richard Moore, the company’s vice president creative director who is overseeing the store and window design, told Vanity Fair.
The cafe is decked out in iconic Tiffany blue, right down to the chairs’ slip covers and the china plates, another style choice that the brand says is deliberate. “Design of the space began from the idea of immersion in Tiffany—not only the feeling of being inside a blue box, but surrounded by Tiffany hospitality,” Moore said.
Even if you can’t afford to buy a single item at Tiffany’s, at least you can eat breakfast there!
