The high tea at the café is something we wouldn’t miss. Its delectable range of breads, sandwiches and savories are worth going for. The café is open regular store hours, which means you can eat, drink, shop and browse for that dream engagement ring.Buying a piece of jewelry is not just about shopping, but an experience and what could be better than Tiffany’s.
