It’s one of the most famous opening scenes in cinematic history: Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, dressed in her early-morning finest, enjoying her coffee and croissant, and staring through the storefront window of Tiffany & Co.

Now, over five decades after the 1961 film’s release, fans can pay tribute to Audrey and to Breakfast at Tiffany’s by actually dining inside the store.

The luxury retailer recently opened the Blue Box Café, the first restaurant of its kind in any Tiffany & Co. location.

On November 10, 2017, the eatery officially opened its doors at the flagship store in New York, located at 727 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The cafe is part of the location’s completely renovated fourth floor.

Fans of the Tiffany & Co. brand will immediately recognize the beautiful new restaurant’s decor — it’s completely done up in the iconic Tiffany blue, the same shade you can find on all of its gift boxes.

Unsurprisingly, fans and tourists came out in droves on the opening day to experience the new attraction.

Racked reporter recounted her attempt to have breakfast at Tiffany’s, only to experience a late lunch instead. She arrived at 10 a.m. (the hour Blue Box Café opened) and was 30th in line on the main floor, waiting for the elevator up to the restaurant. She eventually sat down at 2:15 p.m.

Lifestyle blogger and former Real Housewives of New York City star Kristen Taekman had a similar experience. “My breakfast at Tiffany’s has now turned into lunch – and hopefully not dinner,” she told the New York Daily News while waiting in line.
