New York City’s First Dog Café Coming to the East Village
Move over, cat cafés. Dogs are (finally) getting their day.
New York City’s first dog-friendly café is set to open in the East Village this December, so you can sip lattes and wine to your heart’s content alongside your furry best friend.
Named Boris & Horton, after owners Coppy and Logan Holzman’s respective pooches, the café and community space will serve drinks, snacks, and sandwiches on one side, and have a doggie lounge on the other—complete with a canine photo booth (cuteness overload) and select pet supplies.
“It’s like basically going to someone’s nice living room with your dog, and it’s adjacent to a place where you can get all your food and coffee,” Coppy Holzman told DNA Info.
Customers are free to move between both spaces, as long as their four-legged friends stay in their designated area—which will be monitored by staff, so Fido won’t get lonely while you’re grabbing a quick bite.
Don’t own a dog but need some puppy love? You’re more than welcome to come by to get your furball fix. Bonus: Boris & Horton also plans to partner with local animal shelters to host adoption events.
Whether you’re craving caffeine or puppy kisses, this is the place dog-obsessed New Yorkers have been waiting for. Sounds pretty paw-some to us.
