Breakfast at Tiffany's (Dir: Blake Edwards, 1961). Tiffany & Co., 727 Fifth Ave., Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA.

Strangely, in Truman Capote’s novel, Holly Golightly says she calms down by visiting Tiffany & Co. on 57th Street, which is where I went looking for the film location from ‘Breakfast at Tiffany‘s‘, only to find that the most common name for Holly's Tiffany's is Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue, which is a far grander name that I’m sure Holly would have much preferred (but a long way from where I started looking.). It is actually a calming experience inside as long as you don’t get too paranoid about people watching you thinking you can’t afford to buy anything…

The external shots of Holly’s apartment building were filmed at 169 East 71st St., Manhattan, it’s a private residence so you can’t go in, but there’s nothing to see, all the internal apartment scenes were filmed in the studio (is that why New York apartments in films always seem so big?).

I'm pretty sure the only breakfasts you can have at Tiffanys Fifth Ave. are the same kind that Holly has - eaten outside while window shopping. But if your parents are fans of the film they will be just as happy to do that! She has coffee and a pastry al fresco. Maybe you should try the diner from 'When Harry met Sally'? www.worldreviewer.com/travel-guides/film-locations/ill-have-what-shes-having-diner/11366
