You know the scene – Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the classic film based on the novel by Truman Capote, opens with Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn), nibbling on a pastry and drinking some coffee while peeking into the windows of the Tiffany & Co. It’s early and the store isn’t open yet, so all she can do is gaze longingly at everything.
Since the film’s premiere in 1961, no one’s been able to really eat breakfast at Tiffany’s (I mean, really, they sell jewelry, china and silver!), but if you’re a Audrey Hepburn fan, get ready to swoon, because now you can!
In 2017, Tiffany & Co. opened an eatery on their fourth floor of their flagship store in New York City, called The Blue Box Café.
“The Blue Box Café serves American classics made with the highest quality, regionally sourced ingredients,” the brand said in a statement. “The simple menu—which will change and evolve through the seasons—is a refined take on signature New York dishes, reinvented to be uniquely Tiffany.”
Some of their past and present menu items have included:
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY Served with a choice of coffee or tea
Seasonal Fruit & Berries
Smoked Salmon & Bagel Stick
LUNCH Select a starter and a main course
Chilled Pea Soup
Kona Kam Pachi Tartare

The Blue Box Café generally offers seating from 10am to 5:30pm Mondays through Saturdays and from 12pm to 4:30pm on Sundays, with times slightly altered for holidays and special events. When they first opened, they didn’t take reservations and seating was on a first come, first served basis. But since the eatery has become so popular with a 2+ hour queue, they’ve now instituted a system where you can make a reservation up to 2 weeks out (UPDATE 12/7/17 – they now accept reservations up to 30 days out. Thank-you for the heads up, Jimmy M.!). Reservations go on sale at 12 midnight ET daily (UPDATE 12/17/17 – effective 12/18/17, bookings will now begin at 9am ET. Thanks for letting us know, Karen A.!) Click here for more information and the link to make a reservation. Make sure you’ve signed up with and joined on their Resy app BEFORE you try to make a reservation – the time it takes to sign up will be the time it takes for someone else to grab those seats you wanted. 😉
