Want to go grab breakfast at Tiffany’s? Now you can. On Nov. 10 Tiffany & Co. opened a fourth-floor eatery called the Blue Box Café.
The Blue Box Café will be serving up a morning meal, lunch meal and tea. Breakfast includes a coffee and croissant with a choice of avocado toast, buttermilk waffles, truffled eggs or a smoked salmon bagel. Lunch at the Blue Box Café, named after Tiffany’s iconic jewelry packaging, includes a starter and a main course like the Fifty-Seventh Street Flatbread or the Fifth Avenue Salad (lobster and avocado). Tiffany Tea includes a selection of teas plus finger sandwiches and sweets. One can even buy a cake shaped like a Tiffany’s blue box.
In the 1961 film, ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ Hepburn only window-shopped at the Fifth Avenue emporium in New York City, munching elegantly, on a croissant and drinking a cup of coffee. While it’s doubtful that Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly, could have afforded the hefty $29 breakfast it’s even more doubtful that she could have afforded the $49 tea or $39 lunch. It’s also equally as doubtful that some of us can even afford it. However, like Holly Golightly we sure are going to make sure we have our breakfast at Tiffany’s.
The café has been named the Blue Box Café because it has been decorated in Tiffany & Co’s classic egg blue colour scheme from the ceiling to the floor. One can also find the chairs, tables, and dining plates in the classic egg blue colour. Naturally, all the meals will be served on the finest bone china. And we wouldn’t expect anything less.
The Blue Box Café is open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. with the last seating at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m.with the last seating at 4:30 p.m.
