Short-Lived Bruffin Cafe Vacates the Yard on Delancey

The Lower East Side welcomed the Bruffin to its shores back in October. Headquartered in the ground level of The Yard, Bruffin Cafe had heretofore offered its signature creation – a cut muffin that’s stuffed like a sandwich and based on international cuisine. “Meal in a muffin” is their tagline. Four months later, however, the brick-and-mortar sidecar cafe is done here. It had been a pop-up experiment.
Bruffins are now available at the Gansevoort Market in the Meatpacking District, where, we are told, they maintain a permanent location.
These food amalgamations need to stop. How many more Cronut copycats must there be before the fad is declared dead? Not yet, it seems.
