Breakfast at Tiffany’s – the 1961 film based on Truman Capote’s 1958 novella – has become more famous for its visual shorthands, its signifiers of New York chic and fashionable femininity, than its actual story or characters.
By Truman Capote It’s the belief that only good things happen there that makes Tiffany’s so appealing to her. So why choose this as the title? The title draws attention to Holly without having to name her specifically – she’s the only one in the book who loves the store so much.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is about a young woman named Holly Golightly. Soon after, the marriage was annulled, and Holly again ran in search of a happier life. She eventually landed in New York City, where she became a high society escort, trying to raise money to make a home for herself and her brother.
NEW YORK — More than 50 years after the Oscar-winning film “ Breakfast at Tiffany’s ” starring Audrey Hepburn came out, you can now actually have breakfast at Tiffany & Co.’s flagship store in midtown Manhattan. Last November, the Blue Box Cafe opened on the fourth floor of the iconic Fifth Avenue jewelry store.

Breakfast costs $29 and starts with coffee or tea and a croissant or fruit. Then it’s your choice of avocado toast, a buttermilk waffle, truffle eggs or smoked salmon and a bagel.
The movie “ Breakfast at Tiffany’s ” written by George Axelrod and directed by Blake Edwards came out in 1961. One of the biggest differences between the book and the movie is the ending : while in the movie Holly and the writer end up together, the book ends on a sadder note: the writer never sees her again.
In adapting the book, George Axelrod had two main problems : Breakfast at Tiffany’s was too gay, and Holly was too sexual.
Tiffany’s flagship store (since 1940) is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in Manhattan , New York City . The former Tiffany and Company Building on 38th Street is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The polished granite exterior is well known for its tiny window displays.
Tiffany is a very strong brand name. That’s what you are paying for. It is pretty good quality, but you can find the same thing of better quality and other jewelers for significantly less. I love finding hand made jewelry that’s really unique!
Of course, they don’t actually serve breakfast at Tiffany’s . Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly is forced to bring her own—a Danish and coffee, eaten out of a paper bag—while she gazes longingly in the jeweler’s window at a world of luxury and wealth that seem so close but forever out of reach.
Tiffany’s Blue Box Café set breakfast menu starts from £39 ($50.30) per person.
