Tiffany Blue Box Café

*And I said, what about, Breakfast at Tiffany’s…?* Tiffany & Co officially opened their iconic Blue Box Café in Dubai Mall earlier this year. The Dubai branch is the only Blue Box Café in the Middle East and the fourth around the whole world. The chic café is decked out from head to toe in the iconic baby Tiffany blue hue, complete with a chandelier-like centrepiece of Tiffany boxes and marble-clad accent walls. Breakfast at Tiffany’s comes with the options of two set menus: Dhs260 per person including sweet and savoury breakfast items or, for fancier upgrades such as lobster Benedict and French toast, you can opt for the Dhs450 per person menu. Guests can also choose from a casual all-day à la carte menu and Tea at Tiffany’s afternoon tea.
