WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE COMING TO BORIS & HORTON

Boris & Horton is the first dog-friendly cafe and community space in New York! We wanted to make a space where New Yorkers could enjoy their coffee and snacks alongside our four-legged friends. Whether you own a dog or just like being around them, Boris & Horton is the place to be. No wonder they call us the happiest place on earth! 

We are also so proud to be New York’s first Department of Health-approved dog-friendly cafe where we welcome customers to bring their dogs inside. On top of our delicious coffee, beer, wine, and snacks, Boris & Horton also hosts adoption events and fundraisers with the hope that many dogs find their forever homes here. 

You might be familiar with our pack, but just in case, let’s do some introductions! 

Boris

Boris is a very unique-looking pit bull terrier mix with shaggy hair and you may have seen him rocking some cool bandanas around our store. He was born in Puerto Rico and was found roaming the beaches of our sunny neighbor to the south. Boris was rescued by DCluckydog in the summer of 2016 and has been a loving member of the family ever since.

Horton

Horton hails from Houston which is his given name. He is a 12-pound mystery breed with a ton of personality and an adorable snaggletooth. He’s also a shameless food beggar and his favorite treat is string cheese.
