Iris Cafe Adding Dinner To Menu, Alongside New Take-Out Location

As tipped in last Wednesday’s BHB Open Thread, Willowtown’s favorite intimate eatery Iris Cafe on 20 Columbia Place is expanding with a secondary location a couple doors down that will offer to-go orders and a larger grocery selection.

“Flashlight Worthy” reported that the new Iris space (once occupied by Envy Looks hair salon) at 16 Columbia Place in the Riverside Apartment complex, will allow the original location to expand its prep space, soon making it possible to add a dinner menu to the current lunch and brunch specialties.

The cafe, which opened in November 2009, consistently garners praise from the likes of Yelp (“a hidden gem”), New York magazine (“all things to all people”), NYCGo (“lovable”) and The New York Times (“food this comforting stands on its own”).

    I hope the dinner customers with poorly trained dogs will leave them at home where they belong. We already have to listen to them whine, yelp, and bark while they’re tied up outside the cafe during mornings and afternoons. It is not the dogs that are inconsiderate…

    Wonderful news. The people who run Iris are the nicest, and their food is the best.

    Awesome! Great place, can’t wait to try their dinner.

    James, why don’t you wait until the thing you are complaining about ACTUALLY HAPPENS before you start complaining about it? What a novel concept.
