Fifty-six years after the movie’s cinema release, shoppers on New York’s famous Fifth Avenue can order breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Tiffany & Co., the luxury jeweller popularised by the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, opened its café this month as part of its Manhattan flagship store’s renovation.
Holly Golightly, the film’s protagonist, gazed longingly into the store’s windows as she bit into a pastry. Unlike the character, shoppers can now dine within the store.
The Blue Box Café
Named after their famous Tiffany gift boxes, the Blue Box Café specialises in American cuisine and is located on the fourth floor, overlooking the picturesque Central Park. The café is decorated in the company’s robin egg blue, its signature shade, and features new home accessories from Tiffany’s own range.
Wall decorations include chrome figurines and diamonds for an authentic Tiffany & Co. experience.
Those lucky enough to have dined here claim it is an unforgettable experience, adding to New York’s magical appeal and becoming an essential landmark for tourists visiting the city.
For your own café, ensure you have a counter display fridge, such as those found at https://www.fridgefreezerdirect.co.uk/serve-over-counters.
Breakfast and lunch cost $29 and $39 respectively and consist of two courses. The extremely popular café was fully booked on its opening day. The Blue Box Café is an ideal pitstop after browsing the store for high-end jewellery and homewares.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
The film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, is based on the novella of the same name by Truman Capote published in 1958. The story, which is written from the point of view of a narrator, tells the story of a girl from the country who relocates to New York and frolics with high society.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s was nominated for three Oscars, including Audrey Hepburn for the lead role, and it won an award for best music score.
In 2012, the film was also added to the National Film Registry in the Library of Congress in the US. This registry is comprised of movies that represent historic and important artistic and cultural achievements in filmmaking.
This helped cement its position as one of the best-loved movies of all time. Fans of the film have travelled far and wide to arrive at New York and have breakfast at Tiffany’s.
