Breakfast At Tiffany Is Now An Actual Thing

The New York Daily News reports:

Breakfast at Tiffany’s turned into lunch for hundreds of hungry diners Friday as the famed boutique’s new café struggled to meet demand on its opening day.

A crush of well-heeled customers greeted the opening of the 40-seat Blue Box Café, the first restaurant for the 180-year-old luxury jeweler on Fifth Ave.

At 10 a.m., prospective diners eager to shell out $29 for breakfast were told the wait was one hour. By noon, it had ballooned to two hours.

The company’s name is Tiffany, not Tiffany’s.

      • AmeriCanadian

        Push it real good! Such wonderful grammar, no?

        • The_Wretched

          I don’t think grammar applies in songs or poetry.

          • AmeriCanadian

            Did I need to add /s to my post? I love it when I’m down voted.

    • mr wonderful

      Can’t stand that POS

      • Dazzer

        He’s actually a nice, funny, kind man in real life.

        His screen persona is the opposite to his actual personality.

        • bkmn

          That is what I have heard too.

        • BearEyes

          let’s hope so. He’s an absolute unwatchable asshole on screen.

          • Dazzer

            I’ve met him several times.

            He’s truly pleasant – and doesn’t take himself too seriously.

            Also, he does a fuck-load of work for various charities (especially ones dealing with addiction) – but insists that his name is never linked to them.

          • BearEyes

            the charities are good. Just wish he were human (-ish) on screen in the US

          • David Lightfoot

            Good to know. I’ll find him less annoying now.

          • Roy Biv

            It’s for an American audience.

            His shows from the UK portray a completely different side (person) than what most Americans know him for. You can just watch youtube videos of how humble he can be.

  • Lazycrockett

    The movie bores me.

    • Snarkaholic

      I didn’t like it…she was MEAN to the poor kitty!

    • another_steve

      Surrender your gay card.

      Now.

    • Joe in PA

      I saw it for the first time maybe 15 years ago…I was pretty disappointed.

      • Lazycrockett

        The Givenchy black dress and pearls is iconic as is Audrey, but the movie meh.

        • Reality.Bites

          Never seen it.

    • Dagoril

      I recently rewatched it. I really, really did not like her character. And the Faux-Japanese neighbor was really kinda offensive.

  • Natty Enquirer

    The precise name is Tiffany & Co.

  • another_steve

    Remembering Truman.

    Rest in peace, sweet brother.

    • Dazzer

      He didn’t live in peace. I think he’d be vaguely annoyed if he had to be peaceful in death.

  • Rocco Gibraltar

    Can’t forget the awful Asian stereotype by Mickey Rooney.
    But I love, love, love the expression, “quelle rat”. I use it often

    • perversatile

      After explaining Holly Golightly’s name wasn’t ‘Tiffany’ to my 11 y.o.niece, while watching Breakfast At Tiffany’s and playing Barbie Doll Drag Race
      (I am the favorite uncle) she referred to Mickey Rooney as ”creepy” said
      her favorite part was ”When the lady’s hat caught on fire” and upon Cat’s discovery, (accompanied by a huge sigh of relief) concluded, “People like
      that shouldn’t have pets, it wasn’t the cat’s fault that boys are stupid”.

  • Friday’s_cat

    Ivanka show or is it out of range the ankle monitor?

  • Steven B

    This was a marketing idea waiting to happen.

    • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

      Like, FOREVER! Worst marketing ever.

      • Reality.Bites

        Better than the attraction opening soon at Trump Tower: Blowjobs By Melania.

        • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

          That’s less like an attraction and more like utter desperation.

  • Todd Allis

    I hear that and think of Deep Blue Something first.

    • Dazzer

      I had forgotten how good looking the members of that band were.

      Also, when ‘edgy’ videos meant driving round New York on a flat-bed truck.

      • prixator

        This song was so prescient! They keep repeating “Brexit Epiphanies”.

    • AmeriCanadian

      Ah yes, the 90’s, when people still purchased CD’s and there were (sometimes) interesting inserts to read. I haven’t heard this in years. Thanks for posting!

  • Treant

    Hey, I think I remember that film! And as I recall, I think, DH and I liked it.

    • Todd Allis

      I hope it’s not the one thing you’ve got.

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    When I swing through Tiffany’s for breakfast, I prefer my morning doughnut and coffee standing, preferably in a black evening gown, accented with strands of pearls, while inspecting the merchandise…and if you could have a unique little ditty by Henry Mancini playing in the background, I’d much appreciate it.

  • Ernest Endevor

    As others have noted, the company’s name is Tiffany and Co. But be that as it may, don’t they know what the title means?

    • Lars Littlefield

      Excellent point. Would you like hash browns or cottage potatoes with that?

  • gaycuckhubby
    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Wow

  • gaycuckhubby

    A little disappointed there wasn’t a Mueller bombshell today. I expected more in a Friday!

    • bkmn

      He is waiting for Blimpo to come back to the US to drop another bombshell.

    • another_steve

      If I’m reading things correctly, Mueller doesn’t want to release bombshells while the sexual predator is overseas. That would be tacky.

      (Love me, JMGers, if you remember the term “tacky.”)

      • djcoastermark

        Sorta, stuck in the back of my mind.

        • another_steve

          You may be a “transitional.”

          Do you remember a time before and after cell phones?

      • BobSF_94117

        Maybe he’s waiting for the perps to return to his jurisdiction.

        • another_steve

          Bob, my sense is that you grok the term “tacky.”

          Please confirm.

          • BobSF_94117

            It’s like sticky, right?

            🙂

          • another_steve

            I know my JMG buddies.

            You can’t fool me, Bob. 😉

      • Dazzer

        He’s grown into his looks!

        He’s also a deeply intelligent man with a lot of talent.

        I’m surprised he doesn’t get more work.

      • Natty Enquirer

        Woof.

  • Robincho

    Rubes say Tiffany’s. They also say Nordstrom’s…

    • Joe in PA

      There used to be a department store in the DC area called “Hecht’s”…its real name was The Hecht Company. A friend always insisted on calling it that.

      • Robincho

        I always try to get names right. The listener who doesn’t know the difference doesn’t care, and the listener who does is grateful…

        • Joe in PA

          Very wise.

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        Oh, that would have been me. :-).

        • Joe in PA

          Snob. 🙂

          • Robincho

            Prolly one of them college-y people Santorum used to ridicule…

      • Robincho

        What the hecht. I agree with your friend…

        • Lars Littlefield

          SLC used to have one of the first department stores in the USA and called it ZCMI. Everyone called it ZCMIs. I was about five-years-old and asked my aunt Shirley what the letters stood for. She quipped, “Zion’s Collection of Mormon Idiots” and that was that.

          • Robincho

            That’s brilliant. I hope she got her just deserets…

          • Lars Littlefield

            Ouch!

      • Dazzer

        Trivia: Halle Berry was named after a department store called Halle Brothers.

        • stuckinthewoods

          I’ve supposed Tiffany Trump was lucky the store next to Trump Tower wasn’t a Starbucks.

          • JDS

            LOL!

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Speaking of dead stores: It’s “Strawbridge & Clothier”, damnit!

        Not “Clothier’s”

        • Joe in PA

          That’s a PA store right? It was gone by the time we moved here. Probably bought by “Federated”. 🙁

      • stuckinthewoods

        Do you also remember Woodward and Lothrop in DC, a.k.a. Woodies? And Garfinckel’s?

        • Joe in PA

          Of course! Sorry to see them go. And I recently found a packed-away blazer that I bought at Raleigh’s, a “mens store”…remember those? 🙂

    • Treant

      Fancy-schmantzy. ‘Round these here parts, it be Wal-Mart or K-Mart.

      • Natty Enquirer

        Or Target’s.

        • Dazzer

          is that the one pronounced Tar-jay?

          • Robincho

            Whenever I’m in there it’s pronounced Tar-gay…

          • Dazzer

            I like the cut of your jib, young sir.

          • Robincho

            My friends (both of them) say that I’m yarr…

      • JohnJay

        You still have a K-Mart? Used to be three within easy shopping distance. Now there all gone.

      • Adam King

        Just because y’all are too broke to shop at Meijer’s.

    • Lars Littlefield

      Ah, but even Seattle natives call the mother ship located at 500 Pine St, “Nordstroms” and no one sales associate will ever correct them. 🙂

      • Robincho

        In order, Seattle’s parallel downtown streets’ initials are

        J,J,C,C,M,M,S,S,U,U,P,P

        My mnemonic is Jesus Christ Made Seattle’s Underwear Pink…

        • Lars Littlefield

          That’s something I haven’t heard since maybe 1963? Whenever the Seattle’s World Fair happened, because it helped stranger’s negotiate down town one they got off of the south end of the tram.

      • coram nobis

        Whither Gump’s?

        • Robincho

          But the merest shadow of its former glorious self…

        • Lars Littlefield

          I miss Gump’s. Altough I havent been inside tgeir store in SF since it moved tonear Union Square.

          Yes, I know, it is the Gump family . . . but even the family referred to their store aa Gump’s.

  • boobert

    They’ve lost a lot of business because of the security at moron tower.

    • Robincho

      Now you can have breakfast at Tiffany and lose it at Trump…

  • Cuberly Deux

    Yep, one of the few MUST see movies I’e never been able to watch all the way through…never really watched the whole thing.

    Not really sure why, I just sort of drop out of watching it for some reason. And that awful Mickey Rooney performance. Yeesh!

    • Dazzer

      Back in the day when I used to review movies for a living, I swore to myself that I’d only watch Casablanca for the first time on a big screen.

      Then I lost my job and access to screening cinemas. So I’ve still not seen Casablanca.

      Life’s weird.

      • Robincho

        Yours is a situation that wants of immediate correction. We’ll always have Paris…

        • TuuxKabin

          Paris is always a good idea. Audrey Hepburn.

      • Lars Littlefield

        You’ve never seen it? I’m shocked. Shocked I tell you!

      • whollyfool

        It’s really really really really good. Definitely worth a watch. 🙂

        For me it’s a dialog movie, so I’d even watch it with the video off. 🙂

      • coram nobis

        You should see it. It could be the start of a beautiful friendship.

      • greenmanTN

        I’ve never seen Gone With The Wind or any of The Godfather movies.

        • jmax

          I never could stand the character of Scarlett in GWTW. Go ahead and take my gay card. And I have no desire to know about the lives of Mafia thugs. I’ve also never been able to get past the appearance of the Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz.

          • greenmanTN

            I like Wizard but agree with you about the other two.

          • jmax

            My only experience seeing the complete Wizard of Oz story was watching a play in Wamego, Kansas – home of The Oz Museum. I thought it was better than the movie..

      • Cuberly Deux

        Soooooooooo over rated. I’ve seen it a fair number of times, I like it but I still don’t get why so many call it one of the best of the best, if not THE best. Bergman and Bogie are great yeah, but….yeah, the fandom of that one eludes me.

      • Prost Seattle

      It is so terribly, terribly, coy.

    • Lars Littlefield

      Ah, but have you ever read the book? And not the slim volume printed after the movie came out but Capote’s original novella? Much different sensitivity than the homogenized movie. Lulamae Barnes did good for a barefoot gal from Texas.

      • olandp

        Inspired by Marilyn Monroe, whom Truman wanted for the movie.

        • Lars Littlefield

          Yeah. She would have been a very different Holly Golightly, but she would have been a good one.

      • Cuberly Deux

        I’ve never read any Capote. Not sure why really.

        • Lars Littlefield

          May I suggest his small collection of short fiction and non-fiction titled Music for Chameleons. The piece called Hand Carved Coffins is very good reading.

          • Cuberly Deux

            Sure, I’ll add it to my list.

          • Cuberly Deux

            Thanks BTW. 😉

    • jerry

      For me, it was attempting to make it all the way through “Doctor Zhivago”…was unable to finish either the book or the movie.

      • olandp

        I’ve seen Zhivago all the way through, thought it was great, but can’t remember a thing about it. A train going through snow, maybe?

            No, nothing. Beautiful though.

            I saw the movie as a kid and that’s what I remember most vividly.

          • Cuberly Deux

            So many great moments in that movie. The funeral scene in the beginning is still one of my all time faves.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jffzeGOM1Hk

        • Cuberly Deux

          I tend to think most David Lean movies require multiple viewings. There’s so many different layers going on. His attention to the visuals is a biggie. Lots going on, lots easily missed.

          • jmax

            I practically have Bridge On The River Kwai memorized. One of the greatest movies ever to show the sheer stupidity of war.

          • Cuberly Deux

            Guinesses’ awakening, that very last moment of the movie. Holden is so perfectly cast as well.

            Yep.

      • JCF

        Hmm, I loved both (Disclaimer: was majoring in Soviet/Eastern European Studies at the time. ;-/)

      • Cuberly Deux

        Oh wow, I understand. I have riends that are the same way. ” If they cut all the scenes of Omar Shariff staring blankly into space the movie would be 15min”. Or something like that.

        But, yeah…for me Dr. Z is a major guilty pleasure. It’s so gorgeously filmed.

      • jmax

        Zhivago was my mom’s favorite and I love David Lean . But that movie bored me into a coma.

        • jerry

          Yeah, I fell asleep every time I tried to watch it.

    • coram nobis

      Mickey Rooney was awful, and the producers messed with the story and the ending.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Were the studios using focus groups and test audiences back then, and thereby ditching bittersweet endings in favor of happier ones?

        • coram nobis

          They probably wanted to avoid Capote’s gayer nuances, and wanted a pat ending as well, instead of the more sensible one Capote told.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Maybe it’s because of the producers then. I mean Edwards did The Days of Wine and Roses. I can’t imagine him shying away from a more controversial script.

    • marshlc

      BaT is actually kinda terrible. Mickey Rooney is just part of it. Everything that is wrong with rom coms, all the destructive lies they tell us about love, all rolled up into one movie.

      That said, Hepburn and Peppard are both charming and beautiful, and there are some great lines.

      • Cuberly Deux

        It’s funny, overall I like Blake Edwards, he wasn’t perfect but he’s made some great movies. I love older films very much, but something about BaT just seems overly dated & stylized.

        Agree, what’s not to love about Hepburn and Peppard. One of my all time favorite thrillers is Charade. Hepburn is wonderful in it.

    • Bert_Bauer

      That’s how I am with Singin’ in the Rain but they still haven’t yanked my union card so you’re probably good, too.

        All I can think is “Are you sure you wouldn’t like my seat, Ma’am? My stop is coming up.”

        • JAKvirginia

          “No thanks,” she said. “Your seat’s too big!”

        • 2guysnamedjoe

        Well that’s because you’re morally and ethically disgusting, safari.

      “the Stalinism in which you were bathed amniotically . . .” That’s some damn good shade.

  • BeaverTales

    I hope I won’t have my gay card revoked, but I’ve never seen this movie, and it’s not on Netflix 🙁

    I loved Audrey Hepburn in Wait until Dark.

    I DID finally watch Sunset Boulevard, and loved it! I’m woefully behind on old movie watching….it’s gonna be a long dark and cold winter and I have a nice big screen, lots of booze, and two sweet puppies to cuddle with.

    • safari

      You are not the only one.

    • Lars Littlefield

      Points for puppies!

    • Bert_Bauer

      Wait Until Dark is still one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen.

  • edrex

    it’s five o’ clock on a friday so i’m just going to say this aloud and then run away…. i never really liked the movies “breakfast at tiffany’s” or “auntie mame.” bye!….

      GET HER!!!!!

    • Natty Enquirer

      Come sit by me and we’ll not watch them together. Maybe we’ll not watch Hello, Dolly! afterward.

      • coram nobis

        You could also not watch Darling Lili.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      I was never fond of Streisand or Garland, myself. But wow, not liking Auntie Mame?

      • Dazzer

        I loved the book but couldn’t stand the movie.

        • TuuxKabin

          Did you read ‘Little Me’? Funnier than ‘Auntie Mame,’ IMHO.

      • boobert

        It’s because we fight stereotypes. Once I really listened to Judy at Carnegie Hall , I got it. She was fantastic.

        • edrex

          i love judy. and much of liza. and some of barbra.

        • Bert_Bauer

          I’m a Judy come lately, only starting to appreciate her immense talent in the last couple of years watching clips of her ill-fated CBS variety show and finally seeing A Star is Born. And maybe it has something to do with reaching 50. I dunno.

    • coram nobis

      You mean the Roz Russell Mame, or the Lucille Ball Mame?

      • Lars Littlefield

        Lucy’s Mame is soooooo sad.

        • coram nobis

          Bea Arthur should have had the title role.

          • M Jackson

            Lucy got a young Madeline Kahn fired as Gooch out of fear of being upstaged.

          • coram nobis

            Ugh. But yes she would have been upstaged, even with full Gooch costume. Madeleine Kahn would have been a howl reading the phone book aloud.

            I miss MK.

          • Itsatarp

            Getting fired from Mame was the best thing that could have happened to Kahn. It freed her up to do Blazing Saddles.

            I agree. Anyone except Lucille Ball. Ball is a mixed bag for me. I’m always surprised to find her playing some minor role in an old MGM film from the early 30, so innocent and pretty. And there are her glam moments in giant MGM musicals during the WWII (Dubarry Was a Lady). And she’s a very good actress. I’m impressed with her role in the British film noir movie Lured. Mature, raving beautiful, fresh and smart. She’s really a drop dead gorgeous woman right up there in looks and presence with Rita Hayworth, Alexis Smith and other actresses who were presented with a natural look, compared to a creation by Max Factor, such as Joan Crawford (who thing gives me the willies)!

            Anyway, Lucille Ball fascinates me because of her pre I love Lucy career. She’s my idea of the ideal 1940s sexy woman.

          • octobercountry

            Anyone ever notice that the chorus girls Lucy tamed with her whip in “Ziegfeld Follies” were actually guys in drag? I only noticed this recently! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/54669ad029b9c28442c66a27183b030d25d4ccfcc7519c7fb1add71f40e7b6a8.jpg

        • M Jackson

          The people at Vasoline would beg to differ.

        • Tor

          I understand there’s a story about that. She really did not want to do it, but was under contract to the studio – whichever one it was – and they’d let her out of contract if she did the film. Can anyone verify?

      • BJORN RAGNVALDR

        There is no other Mame than Russell, period.

    • edrex

      wait! i can explain everything!…. i found holly golightly to be amusing for abt. half an hour, then she became really annoying. and i loved the character of auntie mame, but the story seemed to meander after the first hour or so. i just couldn’t maintain interest. (but i really do like sex with guys.)

  • Mike

    It’s funny that people want to eat a bear claw outside Tiffany’s window just like Audrey Hepburn, even though Holly Golightly’s “breakfast at Tiffany’s” was not a madcap impulse, it was a ritual purification, a purging after a night of sex work. The opening credits scene is heartbreaking.

  • Life follows art.

  • worstcultever

    IMO the only good things about that movie were Audrey, her clothes, her singing “Moon River” on the fire escape, and Cat.

  • coram nobis

    Is the deli from “When Harry Met Sally” still in business? I’d like to have what she was having.

    • Stubenville

      Did you know that was director Rob Reiner’s mother in a cameo? =)

      • coram nobis

        Indeed, with one of the most deathless lines in cinema.

    • easygoingmister

      Yes, it is still in business: https://www.katzsdelicatessen.com/

  • Stubenville

    Actually it’s kinda already been done.

    Not with a dedicated restaurant space, but somewhere around 1986, Tiffany had early opening hours for Christmas shopping, serving mimosas, coffee, and pastries to their customers. Not sure if it lasted for more than one year, but for at least a brief time you could have breakfast at Tiffany.

  • Jeffrey

    Sounds like a tourist trap horror show, no thanks.

  • Piet

    Readers are expected to note the class reference when he uses Tiffany’s rather than Tiffany.

  • David Lightfoot

    I’m sorry, but the whole poetry to Breakfast at Tiffany’s is strolling in the morning with a fresh croissant admiring what you can’t have. I don’t care about jewelry, but I did the same in paris as a poor young tourist. Beautiful memories, and a beautiful film.

    Screw Eggs Tiffany.

  • Bert_Bauer

    I would live in this movie if I could.
