Just call us Holly Golightly...
Having breakfast at Tiffany’s has topped many-a person’s bucket list since the 1961 classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, first graced our screens.
Who didn’t want to be beauty icon Audrey Hepburn‘s eccentric socialite character Holly, frequenting Fifth Avenue’s Tiffany & Co store in her Givenchy dress and browsing diamonds with a croissant and coffee in hand?
In fact we were all so attached to the idea that it was gutting when we discovered that having breakfast at Tiffany’s wasn’t actually a thing and that we’d have to make do with window-shopping with a Pret wrap instead.
Well – good news – Tiffany’s is making Audrey Hepburn fans’ dreams come true, now making having breakfast at Tiffany’s a reality – you might have to find your own George Peppard to accompany you though!
Fifth Avenue’s Tiffany & Co’s flagship store is officially opening its first ever cafe on its fourth floor, named The Blue Box Cafe – a nod to the brand’s iconic packaging – and it’s not cheap!
But seeing as Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s script sold for an eye-watering £630,000 earlier this year, we have a feeling it will still be a sell out.
The decor is strictly Tiffany blue – right down to the salt shakers, and the menu is fit for Hollywood royalty – we’re talking lobster salad lunches, afternoon teas and for breakfast, everything from avo toast to truffled eggs.
If you’ll excuse us, we’re off to NYC to try this out for ourselves.
