Who let the dogs in: Expanded Boris & Horton debuts on Avenue A



Boris & Horton, the dog friendly cafe, opened its expanded space yesterday at 195 Avenue A between 12th Street and 13th Street...



There's now more space for pups and their parents...


As previously noted, daughter-father co-owners Logan Mikhly and Coppy Holzman created three separate areas in the cafe, including an indoor seating area where dogs can go but food cannot be ordered, and a cafe separated by plexiglass where dogs are forbidden per Department of Health rules.

Boris & Horton opened on Feb. 2.

No. 195 was Gabay's Outlet until the end of 2017.

Lucky dog: Boris & Horton expanding on Avenue A



Workers are renovating the empty storefront at 195 Avenue A near 12th Street...



Boris & Horton, the dog friendly cafe next door, is taking over the space, which was Gabay's Outlet until the end of 2017.

The owners are on this month's CB3-SLA docket for the expansion. According to the questionnaire on file at the CB3 website, they are "expanding seating on dog side of cafe."

As previously noted, daughter-father co-owners Logan Mikhly and Coppy Holzman created three separate areas in the cafe, including an indoor seating area where dogs can go but food cannot be ordered (this appears to be the area to be expanded), and a cafe separated by plexiglass where dogs are forbidden per Department of Health rules.

Boris & Horton opened on Feb. 2.

The August CB3-SLA meeting is Aug 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Perseverance House Community Room, 535 E. Fifth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.

That dog-friendly cafe opens today on Avenue A



After much hoopla these past few months, Boris & Horton, the dog-friendly cafe, opens this morning at 7 on Avenue A and 12th Street ... (H/T Greg Masters for the photos!)



As previously reported, with the approval of the Department of Health, daughter-father co-owners Logan Mikhly and Coppy Holzman created three separate areas in the cafe, including an indoor seating area where dogs can go but food cannot be ordered, and a cafe separated by plexiglass where dogs are forbidden.

The cafe, named after the owners' dogs, is serving City of Saints coffee and Balthazar pastries, among other items. (They were OK'd for a beer-wine license.) The space will also host the occasional dog-adoption events.

Boris & Horton's hours are 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Find their website here with more details.

Meanwhile, let us know in the comments if you stopped by the space...

Looking at Boris & Horton, opening soon on Avenue A



Signage is up over on Avenue A at 12th Street, where Boris & Horton is expected to open this month...





As previously noted, this is billed as "New York's first dog friendly coffee shop and community space." And this is not an actual dog cafe, as some media outlets have implied.

Eater recently set the record straight:

[C]o-owner Logan Mikhly tells Eater. “I think it’s awesome that people are super excited, but we definitely are a different experience than the animal cafes you’re seeing opening in the States that are like in Asia.”

In a deal with the Department of Health, Mikhly and co-owner Coppy Holzman [Logan's father] created three separate areas: a street takeaway window to order food and drink, an indoor seating area where dogs can go but food cannot be ordered, and a regular cafe area separated by plexiglass where dogs are not allowed. Basically, Boris & Horton cannot serve food where dogs are, but people can order food and bring it into the designated area with their dogs.

There are two entrances... the one on the corner. No pups can come in this way...



Dogs and their owners can enter in a separate entrance on Avenue A (this is the former Racelette space) ...





There is also a to-go coffee window on the 12th Street side...



The cafe, named after the owners' dogs, will reportedly serve City of Saints coffee, Balthazar pastries and Murray’s Cheese cheese plates, among other items. (They were OK'd for a beer-wine license.) The space will also host the occasional dog-adoption events.

Boris & Horton will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Find their website here with more details.

Boris and Horton, the dog friendly coffee shop, now hiring on Avenue A



Work continues at the northwest corner of Avenue A and 12th Street for Boris & Horton, billed as "New York's first dog friendly coffee shop and community space."

Signage points to a winter 2017 debut (sometime before March 20 then).

Meanwhile, Boris is hiring... (Must love dogs?)



As cut and pasted previously: the space will be divided by a glass wall into two sections, per Department of Health rules. There will be a cafe side with food and drinks for humans, and a dog-friendly side that will sell pet supplies.

The owners are Logan Holzman and her father, Coppy. The cafe is named after their dogs. The Holzmans have said that they will host dog adoption events here.

Dog's cafe life: Boris and Horton signage arrives on 12th and A



The signage went up yesterday on the northwest corner of Avenue A and 12th Street for Boris & Horton, billed as "New York's first dog friendly coffee shop and community space." (Thanks to EVG regular Greg Masters for these photos!)

The sign points to a winter 2017 debut (New York magazine previously listed a Dec. 1 opening date)...



As DNAinfo reported back in the summer, the space will be divided by a glass wall into two sections, per Department of Health rules. There will be a cafe side with food and drinks for humans, and a dog-friendly side that will sell pet supplies.

The owners are Logan Holzman and her father, Coppy. The cafe is named after their dogs. The Holzmans have said that they will host dog adoption events here.

More about Boris and Horton, the dog-friendly cafe coming to Avenue A


[The same photo I posted on Monday]

Back on Monday, I reported that Boris and Horton, billed as "New York's first dog friendly coffee shop and community space," was in the works for the former Ost Cafe and Raclette spaces on Avenue A at 12th Street.

The applicants, Coppy Holzman and his daughter, Logan Holzman, appeared before CB3's SLA committee meeting that night for a new beer-wine license.

Allegra Hobbs at DNAinfo was at the meeting, and has more details in this article:

Boris and Horton, named for owners Coppy and Logan Holzman's respective pooches, will be divided by a glass wall into two sections per Department of Health rules — a cafe side will offer up beverages alongside pastries and sandwiches, while the pet-friendly side will provide a lounging space for folks with dogs, plus a photo booth and 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," said Coppy Holzman.

And!

Patrons are free to move between the spaces as long as their dogs stay on the designated dog side, explained the Holzmans — and staff will be on hand to momentarily watch dogs if an owner has to dash to grab a coffee.

And dog-less New Yorkers who just want to hang out with a bunch of dogs are welcome throughout, they said.

The CB3-SLA committee approved the application with some stipulations, "including installing soundproofing and monitoring noise from canine visitors."

Boris and Horton is expected to be open this winter.
