Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the cult movie from the 60’s, has an unforgettable opening scene that the whole movie is named after. Holly Golightly, played by Audrey Hepburn, nibbles at a croissant watching the windows of the Tiffany & Co. store on the Fifth Avenue, New York. Holly is elegantly dressed up with her Givenchy dress, pearl jewellery and cat-shaped glasses on.
The scene has been locked in our memories ever since as a fictional element. Now that the fourth floor of the flagship store in NYC has been renovated including the Blue Box Cafe, it becomes non-fiction. Namely, it is actually possible to have breakfast at Tiffany’s!
“The setting is as inviting as the food is inspiring, serving customers who have always dreamed of having breakfast at Tiffany,” the company wrote in a press release. Fulfilling this promise, the floor is filled and decorated with the Tiffany blue, white and silver, creating a modern and luxurious experience through elegant accessories.
Not to disappoint Holly Golightly, there is of course croissant in the breakfast menu. The menu also includes options varying between buttermilk waffle with seasonal fruits and maple syrup, eggs with bacon, avocado toast, smoked salmon and bagel stack – accompanied with tea or coffee.
As of last week, the Blue Box Cafe welcomes visitors for both breakfast and lunch opening at 10:00 am. Without surprise, it is quite hyped resulting in long waiting queues already. But, who wouldn’t like to have breakfast at Tiffany’s?
