Tiffany’s Blue Box Cafe


Who wouldn’t want to have breakfast at Tiffany’s?

All the Audery Hepburn fans and those who wanted to live her life, finally got lucky! After almost six decades of the popular film Breakfast at Tiffany's release, Tiffany & Co. has opened the Blue Box Cafe at its flagship store on tony Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan. The cafe is said to be inspired by the movie and is as much a spectacle as it is a place to eat.

One has to walk past rows of diamonds on the main floor of the jewellery shop to a concierge-attended elevator in order to get to the cafe. The cafe’s tiny walls are decorated with photos of the brand's wares, including its new line of tea cups and plates, and give you a sneak peak of the cafe's table settings. The prix fixe cafe is designed to make you feel like you're inside one of the store’s iconic jewellery boxes, with the decor covered in its signature Robin's Egg Blue.

However, you cannot just waltz right in because to claim your spot in the cafe, which can accommodate 40 people at a time, you may need to get in a queue as early as 5am. So the early risers who wait in line are given a time to return later in the day and for the lucky few who get in, be prepared to spend a handsome amount of bucks, for its breakfast costs $29 and starts with coffee or tea and a croissant or fruit. One gets to have avocado toast, a buttermilk waffle, truffle eggs or smoked salmon and a bagel. The cafe’s lunch costs $39, comprised of starters such as mushroom soup and black bass crudo, with main dishes like the ‘Charles Lewis Tiffany’ sandwich (named after the luxury jewellery company’s founder) or the ‘Fifth Avenue Salad’ with Maine lobster and grapefruit, and if fancy treats are what you crave then Tiffany Tea comes with a three-tiered plate of finger sandwiches and mini-desserts for $49.
