See What’s Happening Today at the Café


Did You Hear?! New York Has a Dog-Friendly Cafe and Community Space! Boris & Horton was created to provide New Yorkers with an amazing café and community space to enjoy 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!


Boris & Horton is New York’s first Department of Health approved dog-friendly café where customers are welcome to bring their own dogs inside. In addition to serving great coffee, beer, wine and snacks, Boris & Horton also hosts adoption events and fundraisers with the hope that many dogs find their forever homes here.



Boris was born in Puerto Rico and was found roaming the beaches of our sunny neighbor to the south. He was rescued by DCluckydog in the summer of 2016 and has been a loving member of the family ever since. He is a very unique looking pit bull terrier mix with shaggy hair and he really knows how to rock a bandana.



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

Brian Green

Brian is COO of Boris & Horton. An avid animal enthusiast, Brian grew up wanting to be the next Steve Irwin until he discovered his passion for business. Brian received his MBA from the Chicago Booth School of Business and became CEO of Vet-Tab, a company dedicated to helping diabetic dogs manage their glucose levels using saliva instead of painful blood pricks. He has now brought his passion and skillset to NYC to help B&H grow its operations!

When not at the café, you can find Brian around East Village relaxing with his cat Zelda and 20-year-old gecko Judith.


Angelic Samuel

Angelic has been a barista for about 10 years, and prides herself in providing the best possible experience for customers and employees. When she is not whipping up beautiful latte art and chatting it up with our regulars, she is spinning fire, learning some new random skill, or performing in front of crowds of people. Even with all of her coffee experience, she prefers to drink tea and will only drink coffee in emergencies. Boris & Horton is her home away from home, and she is excited to see it grow and prosper.
