1. If your favorite color is rainbow (as my 6 year old daughter says), then you will go gaga over the Flour Shop which is pretty much made for the rainbow chaser.  Rainbow sprinkles, rainbow cake, rainbow wall, rainbow floor… can’t get enough?  Go here and it will be your new happy place.  Their candy-filled cakes are pretty darn awesome too.  Check their gram cuz they oftentimes have special, seasonal decor like the heart decals or balloons arches shown here!

8. While We Were Young  This petite, girly restaurant is so Instagramable that it draws crowds and waits for durations of 30min- 1hour sometimes.  The most coveted seats are those plush blush banquettes pictured here but you must arrive before opening to secure those.

Avocado toast is beautifully presented and Yelp reviewers also love the chicken and waffles, truffle fries and burger!

Breakfast At Tiffany’s – A Blue Box Cafe Review


Did you know that you could have breakfast at Tiffany’s now?  Yes!  It’s true!  Holly Golightly wannabes no longer have to settle for a simple croissant and coffee and be left longingly looking into the store.  Now you can walk right into the Blue Box Cafe located on 727 5th Avenue in New York City and sit down for the most fabulous breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea!  It opened up in November, 2017 and I finally scored a reservation.  Keep reading because I have all the details and pictures to share with you!

It is just as fabulous as it sounds!  The newly renovated 4th floor is where you’ll find the jewel of a restaurant. And along the way you’ll discover Tiffany blue suitcases, globes, baby items and even a bicycle!  Make sure to walk around and discover cute Instagramable moments like this sofa!

Like Tiffany Blue?  I hope so because you will be completely enveloped in it.  “Both the café and redesign of the Home & Accessories floor reflect a modern luxury experience,” said Reed Krakoff, Tiffany’s chief artistic officer, in a statement. “The space is experimental and experiential — a window into the new Tiffany.”

Honestly, I could have just sat there taking in the true blue sights and been stupidly happy but bonus, I got to eat delicious food too lol!  Breakfast is $29.  Lunch is $39.  Afternoon tea is $49.  My friend and I ordered one breakfast item (the avocado toast), and the afternoon tea set.  We found that that was more than enough food for the two of us to share.  Note to the moms, there is no kids’ menu. And all patrons taking a seat must order separately (This is why I decided against bringing my 6 year old -there was no way she’d be able to finish a full adult sized entree).  Click here to see the full menu.

This is a great spot to celebrate a special occasion (they even have cake in the shape of a Tiffany’s box!!), or simply come for an Instagramable and very memorable meal like we did.   Thanks Melissa for coming with me on such a rainy Manhattan morning!

We both highly recommend this as a fabulous, girly meetup.  Because 1. Tiffany’s so gorgeously presented the delicious food.  And 2. we found the price to be fair given the atmosphere and 5th Avenue setting.


It’s a tiny restaurant and you must make reservations (no walk-ins as they are always booked).  Check for openings every morning at 9am to book your reservation in advance.  It may take a while but I hear that new open bookings come up every morning for 30 days in advance.  So keep checking and persistence will pay off.  Let me know how you like it when you do!
