You Can Now Actually Have Breakfast At Tiffany's

It’s time to tie your hair in a French knot, put on a little black dress, long black gloves and pearls – perhaps a tiara too - and take yourself down to Tiffany & Co.

And no, unlike Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly you won’t be standing at the window looking in, as you can now actually have Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

New York City’s flagship Tiffany & Co store on Fifth Avenue has just opened a luxurious café – tastefully decorated with its signature Tiffany Blue.

The restaurant will open tomorrow, November 10, inside the newly designed Home & Accessories floor – we’re clutching our pearls and buying a £99 ticket to New York as we type.

It’s aptly called the Blue Box café as everything from the walls, to the chairs, to the salt and pepper shakers are painted in its trademark blue.

According to Tiffany & Co, the café will serve "American classics made with the highest quality, regionally sourced ingredients" – so you can expect it to be pricey but fancy.

Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer at Tiffany & Co, said in a statement: “Both the café and redesign of the Home & Accessories floor reflect a modern luxury experience. The space is experimental and experiential – a window into the new Tiffany.”

There will be a New York-themed menu which includes the “Fifth Avenue Salad” a combination of lobster and avocado.

According to Vanity Fair, a coffee and croissant - Holly’s staples – along with your choice of avocado on toast, truffled eggs or a smoked salmon bagel will cost an eye-watering £22. Extortionate? Yes. Worth it? For the ‘gram – always.
