Attention New York dog lovers and everyone visiting the city, there's a dog cafe that opened in the East Village and it is everything you could ever hope for. Boris and Horton is a must if you'd like to sit down with a cup of coffee and hang with your pup. There's even a SELFIE station, which of course I spent most of my time doing.
So even though I don't have a dog myself, I felt welcomed in the establishment, grabbing my coffee and heading over to the 'dog side' of the cafe. I go to play with the cutest pup Ripley (as seen in the video above). We ate (him a biscuit me a scone) and laughed over drinks (him water, me a coffee) and ultimately had the best date ever!
Boris & Horton's father-daughter owners, Coppy and Logan Holzman, names the establishment after their own dogs: Boris, a pitbull mix, and Horton, a terrier mix! HOW PERFECT!
At the dog-friendly cafe, anyone is welcomed to bring their dog. Similar to the cat cafe establishments, the cafe itself will reportedly feature a glass wall to separate the dogs from the food area.
"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 tells DNAInfo.
As you order your food or latte, there will be a Boris & Horton staffer looking after your pup, while you are on the food side of the cafe. On the food side you will be able to order your typical coffee, pastries, sandwiches, as well as, beer and wine! They even offer an all-vegetarian menu, with gluten-free and vegan options available! Plus on the dog side there are so many gifts for you and your dog to chose from.
Well I just had the best day ever hanging with everyone at the cafe and if you or anyone you know has a dog for me to chill with just hit me up!
