Nearly every women with a penchant for jewellery can probably identify the iconic Tiffany’s blue from 100 paces, me included. I am extremely honoured to be the owner of a beautiful engagement ring carefully chosen from Tiffany’s which is my most loved possession.
When we booked our trip to New York, the one thing I really wanted to do was a visit the Tiffany’s flagship store and make a reservation at the Blue Box Cafe located on the 4th floor. Herein lies the issue – trying to actually get a reservation is near on impossible. You can only book 30 days in advance and reservations open at 9am US time and can only be booked online. After 3 days of trying I’d almost given up but on the 4th day I secured an 11.30am table.
Without sounding like an over dramatic drama queen, I was literally giddy with excitement on the morning of the reservation.
You can enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea regardless of the time of your reservation. We were booked for 11.30am, we opted for the breakfast menu so that we could truly have ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.
I’m not surprised that obtaining a reservation is SO difficult, there are only around 12 – 15 tables in total. Each table is beautifully laid out using all their own tableware. It’s a total Instagrammers paradise!
Despite being an English Breakfast tea kind of girl, I chose to channel my inner Audrey Hepburn and have the Tiffany tea which is a blend to embrace life, love and dreams. Usually I’m a not a lover of overly ‘faffy’ tea but this was delicate and not overpoweringly floral.
Included in the cost of breakfast was a small plate of pastries with Nutella, honey butter and jam plus a bowl of seasonal fruit and berries. We both went ‘typical blogger’ and had Avocado Toast with a poached egg (there was a $4 supplement for the egg…!!). The toast was cut into 4 squares, and each had an additional topping including radish, sorrel and sunflower seeds.
In all honesty, it is a little overpriced and trying to get a reservations is a complete nightmare but my goodness me…it’s totally worth it!
