When Tiffany & Co. announced their opening of the “Blue Box Cafe,” I knew I had to experience it. Having read “Breakfast At Tiffany’s,” it makes Capote’s title come to life. It is kind of unbelievable and I don’t think anyone was expecting this. When they first opened, seating was on a first come, first serve basis. One of the managers told me that it was getting out of control, with lines going around the block. They decided to take reservations via Resy and getting a table is almost impossible. My experience was magical and I can’t wait to go back. Below are some of the photos I took while dining.
The tea selection is delicious. I ordered the “Tiffany Tea” which is a tower of sweets, scones and finger sandwiches. I sampled the “Tiffany Blend,” a black tea with hints of rose, lavender and vanilla, and the “White Wedding,” a delicious aroma of Chinese white peony, jasmine and orange blossoms.
I also sampled the “Breakfast At Tiffany.” Below are the eggs with truffles and avocado toast.
Below is a photo of the view of West 57th St from my table.
Currently on display in the store are luxury travel bags, sunglasses and tableware.
There are several beautifully decorated Christmas trees on the first level of the store.
The menu (pardon my shadow!) selection with food on one side, drinks and teas on the other.
The table setting is beautifully decorated with Tiffany & Co. fine china and a lovely window display.
I’m sure Kate and Pippa would love it here! Kate has worn Tiffany pieces on several occasions and it’s not a far walk from the Carlyle Hotel!
Kate wore one of their necklaces to announce her engagement.
Kate also wore a “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” inspired hat designed by James Lock & Co.
Thank you for reading! I hope you have a happy and peaceful New Year!
