What dish did Audrey Hepburn eat at Tiffanys?

F: Breakfast

A: Hepburn, who played Holly Golightly in the 1961 adaptation of the Truman Capote novel, didn’t eat anything in Tiffany’s. She ate a croissant outside the famous jewellers, which proved a terrible chore for the actress during filming as she hated eating the things with a passion.
Tiffany’s, which was established September 18th 1837, have never had a restaurant facility in their store, and don’t intend to in the near future. The shop not only has a unique place in American hearts courtesy of the motion picture, but for also providing the Union Army with swords, flags and surgical implements during the Civil War in 1862.
Quite Interestingly, the film’s seminal song "Moon River was written in one octave to enable novice singer Hepburn to sing it. When the president of Paramount heard the song, he asked for it to be removed. Hepburn put her foot down, and Moon River, written by Pink Panther tune writer Henry Mancini, went on to win the 1962 Academy Award for best song.

Moon river stretches more than an octave - the second note is the 2nd tone, and it later drops to the bottom tonic, so it stetches a 9th.

Good question though! :-D

Which version are you referring to?
There are three I know of...A.H, Danny Williams and Andy Williams.

I'm not talking about the arrangements - the tune is the same in all of them.
