Breakfast at Tiffany’s

By  | 

Some movie scenes are so iconic that they still resonate even after half a decade. When Audrey Hepburn, stepped out of a yellow cab in 1961 to the window of Tiffany & Co. in the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” with “Moon River” playing in the background, such a scene was created.

As Audrey ate a croissant and carried a cup of coffee, she was still, unfortunately, on the outside of the building. Since 1837, Tiffany’s has been a luxury jeweler and not a place where you could actually have breakfast.

However, that changed on Friday, with the opening of the Blue Box Café, at the company’s flagship store at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in New York City.

Located on the fourth floor of the building, the café is a bright, airy space. The cafe is accentuated with the company’s classic robin’s-egg blue motif on everything from the walls to the plates. Only two blocks from the southern side of Central Park, the café has excellent view of the park.

The “Breakfast at Tiffany” menu $29, comes with coffee or tea, followed by a croissant and seasonal fruit and is finished with your choice of a buttermilk waffle, smoked salmon and bagel stack, truffle eggs, or avocado toast.

The prix fixe lunch, which includes a starter and main courses like the Fifth Avenue salad, with Maine lobster, grapefruit and poppyseed dressing, and an olive-oil poached salmon, with caviar and smashed potatoes, costs $39.

There is also a “Tiffany Tea” menu $49, featuring teas by Bellocq, as well as a selection of finger sandwiches, cakes and pastries.

56 years after the film released, Hepburn fans, can finally have breakfast at Tiffany’s.

We’re ready to channel our inner Audrey are you?
