The Cafe has now been closed until 2021 due to renovations. But read this to have an idea of what the experience is like for a future endeavor!
Tiffany & Co. on 5th Ave is more than just a store filled with beautiful diamonds, precious stones, and iconic movie scenes –Breakfast at Tiffany’s. On the 4th floor there is the Blue Box Cafe. This cafe embodies the delicacy and sophistication that you feel throughout the rest of the retail store. If you are looking to just order tea, there is no barista serving quick drinks, so you will be turned away unless you also order a meal. From breakfast to dainty finger sandwiches and cookies, you will not be dissapointed.
Although it stated that there were no open spots online on their reservation portal, we decided to check it out anyways. Thankfully when we got there we were able to be seated! The building is right next to the Trump Tower, bordering Gucci, Van Cleef & Arpels, and a few blocks away from The Plaza Hotel. The tea that I recommend is the white wedding tea.
Can you have more than just breakfast at Tiffany’s? Well, it all depends on who you are. If you are a celebrity or have some connections, they can bend the rules when it comes to dining amongst the diamonds. For example, Katie Couric hosted her 50th birthday party at Tiffany’s on the main floor. Ringing in another year with diamonds by your side, Tiffany inspired martinis and a Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress code is a true dream come true.
If you still haven’t had enough Tiffany, there is the Netflix Film, “Crazy about Tiffany’s” with some very interesting facts!
