You Can FINALLY Have Breakfast at Tiffany’s in Their Stunning New Cafe
It’s been 56 years since film-goers were first enchanted by the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany‘s, which opened with Holly Golightly perusing the store’s windows while dining on a morning meal of coffee and a danish. The flick has inspired everything from songs to bridal collections since then, and now, Tiffany & Co. is upping the ante with a restaurant that will actually serve breakfast… at Tiffany’s!
The famed jewelry company released a statement this morning unveiling a renovation on the fourth floor of its Fifth Avenue flagship location, which will not only include a space for the brand’s newly unveiled home and accessories collection (aptly dubbed “Everyday Objects“), but its first-ever food offering in the form of The Blue Box Café.
“Both the café and redesign of the home and accessories floor reflect a modern luxury experience,” said Reed Krakoff, Tiffany’s chief artistic officer. “The space is experimental and experiential — a window into the new Tiffany.”
The decor of the eatery will exude all of the luxuries that have always been associated with the brand, with features such as herringbone marble, Amazonite stone, 15-foot-high light chains, and a portrait of founder Charles Lewis Tiffany created with 8,000 painted screws.
Of course, Tiffany’s iconic robin’s egg blue hue will also have a prominent place in the ambiance, woven into the café’s chairs, pillows, plates, salt and pepper shakers, and even walls.
The Blue Box Café will not only serve the pastry the movie’s lead character initially enjoyed (served with avocado toast, truffled eggs, or a smoked salmon bagel with schmear for $29); it will dish up plenty of other delectable American classics “made with the highest quality, regionally sourced ingredients.”
The Blue Box Café will be open for your gastronomic pleasure on November 10 during regular store hours.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
