After a short series of pop-up endeavors, The Yard has finally found a commercial tenant for its minuscule ground floor space at 85 Delancey. And the newcomer is not a flower shop. A recently-placed banner affixed to the sole window cutout reveals that Bruffin Cafe is on the way. Bruffin is a seasoned vendor vet of Smorgasburg and this space offers the first foray into brick-and-mortar for the newcomer.

No doubt capitalizing on the trend of dessert mashups (i.e. the cronut), the cafe will seemingly offer its signature dish. The Bruffin. There are many types of Bruffin, all with the same idea in mind – cut a muffin and stuff it like a sandwich. “Meal in a muffin” is their tagline. The brioche-muffin amalgamations offer a variety of flavors, each based on international cuisine. Hence the little toothpick flags.

Expect an opening at 85 Delancey sometime soon.

In other Yard news, the co-working facility (nay, corrugated trailer) debuted its rooftop office space yesterday evening with a launch party.
