Pink Saturday Visits the Blue Box Cafe

At the corner of West 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, Tiffany's

Those of us who are fans of Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany's greeted the news of the opening of the Blue Box Café with both jubilation and a sigh. Thank you, Tiffany's, it's about time. It is now possible for fans of Tiffany's signature pretty blue box to have lunch and dinner at the store and the restaurant looks as stylish and lovely as you might imagine.  

I was walking in the neighborhood yesterday and thought -- perhaps foolishly -- it might be possible to stop by for an elegant cup of coffee. Alas, this sign set me straight and realized, at least until after New Year's, it was reservations only. I think on a cold and snowy weekday morning in January it might be possible to have breakfast at Tiffany's on the spur of the moment. I do think of the Blue Box Café as a place for a treat -- perhaps a birthday celebration or a visit from a visiting blogger. 

The store was crowded, not surprising for Black Friday, but I did get a picture of one of the elegant windows on West Fifty Seventh Street. 


Though this picture isn't from Tiffany's I am posting it as a preview of coming attractions. It's from Tiffany's neighbor up Fifth Avenue, the very elegant Bergdorf Goodwin. I will be doing a post featuring the beautiful windows of Bergdorf's in the next week.

I hope you're having a fun Pink Saturday.  I'm taking it easy today. I've got the start of a sore throat and I'm drinking tea and trying to keep myself healthy. Thanksgiving was lovely. I enjoyed the balloons of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning and a wonderful dinner in the afternoon. Feel very grateful and richly blessed.

I feel richly blessed, too, for everyone who visits Buttercupland. Thanks, all, for your friendship and have a wonderful weekend.




A shame a trip to the Blue Box Café can only be made via a reservation. The decorated window is lovely though.

Hope you are feeling better, we saw the Macey's Thanksgiving parade on CNN and thought of you! Hope you get to have a stylish coffee at the Blue Box cafe soon!

I don't think there would anything much more exciting than New York for Christmas with all the lights and windows. Guess what was on tv today?

Breakfast at Tiffany's!

Stay well dear Buttercup, and enjoy a meal at the Blue Box cafe soon. Have to plan ahead though, not quite as much fun to need a reservation.

Happy Pink Saturday, Carol. Breakfast or lunch at Tiffany's would be a dream. Maybe one of these days. Thank you for joining us, and for always making Pink Saturday special.
