Audrey Hepburn fans will collectively swoon over the opening of the Blue Box Cafe at the luxury jeweler’s flagship Fifth Avenue store.
You recall the scene: The classic 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s opens with a shot of a Givenchy-clad Audrey Hepburn nibbling at a croissant and peering into the windows of the Tiffany & Co. store on Fifth Avenue. It’s early in the morning after a long, long night, and the store isn’t yet open. All Holly Golightly can do is gaze longingly at all she desires within, sealed off from it by timing and fortune. Until now, that was the extent to which one could dine at Tiffany & Co., regardless of the time of day.
However, with the renovation of the flagship store’s fourth floor to include a home goods section as well as the new Blue Box Café—Tiffany & Co’s first-ever dining concept—you can, as of tomorrow, have Breakfast at Tiffany(’s). Or lunch, or tea, or a number of non-alcoholic refreshers to pick you up after some strenuous shopping.
“The Blue Box Café serves American classics made with the highest quality, regionally sourced ingredients,” the brand said in a statement. “The simple menu—which will change and evolve through the seasons—is a refined take on signature New York dishes, reinvented to be uniquely Tiffany.”
Aptly named, the café sports walls, chairs, and china all awash in Tiffany-box blue. The entire place is decked out in Tiffany blue, white, and silver. You may wish to select your outfit accordingly.
Back to the breakfast details: you can choose between a buttermilk waffle with seasonal fruit and maple syrup; the ubiquitous avocado toast; truffled eggs with bacon; or smoked salmon and bagel stack; plus fruit, a croissant, and coffee or tea, for $29. A two-course lunch runs $39.
“Both the café and redesign of the Home & Accessories floor reflect a modern luxury experience,” said Reed Krakoff, the chief artistic officer of Tiffany & Co. “The space is experimental and experiential—a window into the new Tiffany.”
