Audrey Hepburn fans can now emulate her in the best way by having an actual breakfast at the Fifth Avenue jewelry store in New York City. In 1961, when the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s was made, Tiffany & Co. was exclusively meant for jewelry shoppers and even Hepburn didn’t actually have breakfast in the high-end store. However, as Hepburn’s character indulged in a croissant and coffee outside the blue store, an iconic moment was made.
Since the opening of Blue Box Cafe in November 2017, Tiffany’s has finally made it a possibility to have a sit-down breakfast at its luxury jewelry store. This modern culinary experience is something you don’t want to miss out on if you’re planning a trip to NYC. If you do want to grab a table at the trendy cafe you have to act fast as trendsetters are lining up their reservations up to one month in advance.
Tiffany’s wanted to give millennials a place to indulge in the expensive brand without completely shattering their bank account. That isn’t to say that the meal you will have there isn’t a luxurious experience. What else can you expect from a jewelry store cafe? Say goodbye to the croissant and coffee because Blue Box’s menu has way more options.
The menu is a set one with breakfast for $32 and high tea for $52. The tea price includes a lot of different options like avocado toast, eggs with truffle oil, and a bagel with lox. If you go later in the day you can enjoy lunch for $42 which includes a main dish of your choice. Poached halibut and a chicken club sandwich are just some of the mouthwatering options.
Of course, if you want to have a true Hepburn moment you do have the option of ordering a croissant. However, with all of the different sweet options, you might want to pass. Scones and tarts are just some of the treats that are served with tea.
If you’re going there for a birthday or just celebrating something special, you can order a small cake that looks just like a little blue box from Tiffany’s. It’s lemon flavored and what’s even better is it’s filled with funfetti!
The birthday cake and arrangement of pastries matches perfectly with the cafe’s overall decor. The walls are covered with accents of blue along with white marble and delicate china. The cafe’s ambiance is pretty much what you think a restaurant in the Tiffany store would look like. It’s tasteful and elegant yet inviting.
The cafe is only two blocks away from Central Park which makes it the perfect stop both for tourists and locals alike. The windows provide wonderful natural lighting and excellent views of the park. Since opening, people have taken to social media to rave about this cafe and Instagram has flooded with notes of Tiffany blue ever since.
