We're Now Open Inside Every Day!

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.
