As Audrey Hepburn demonstrated with maximum glamour in 1961, you could technically always have breakfast at Tiffany & Co. on Fifth Avenue in New York City, provided you brought your own coffee and croissant.
But now, at long last, the iconic jewelry store is actually serving breakfast—as well as lunch and afternoon tea—in the newly opened Tiffany Blue Box Cafe, located on the freshly renovated fourth floor of the retailer's flagship location.
It should come as no surprise that the eatery is done up almost entirely in Tiffany's trademark shade of robin egg blue.
Breakfast at the cafe costs a flat $29—undoubtedly quite a bit more than Hepburn's Holly Golightly paid for her coffee and croissant. But at least you can also get truffled eggs, a smoked salmon bagel, or avocado toast.
The restaurant sits amid Tiffany's new collection of contemporary home decor and "elevated everyday objects," whatever that means. Instead of the dark wood and marble you'll find throughout the three floors below, the redesigned space is bright and playful, with miniaturized display windows inset in the walls and the Tiffany & Co. ampersand popping up in unexpected places.
In this relaxed atmosphere, you'll be forgiven for not showing up in a floor-length gown and pearls.
