MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Unsurprisingly, once you arrive at this café tucked into the fourth floor of Tiffany's flagship store, everything starts to resemble an actual "blue box," complete with walls, plush leather banquettes and armchairs all boasting the company's trademark robin’s-egg hue. Suited elevator attendants politely usher diners into this dining room, whose prime corner location offers glorious city views. Tables laid with custom china are usually groaning with breakfast service, which extends to lunch, and finally, afternoon tea. The latter is sure to become a cult favorite thanks to its three-tiered silver stand stocked with sweet and savory scones, dainty finger sandwiches and confections, like a petit four enrobed in-you guessed it-Tiffany blue fondant.
