Maria Walsh recalls that her daughter, Kristin Walsh Lambros, grew up obsessed with “playing store” in her childhood home. She knew, from a very early age, that no dream was too big. Kristin worked at coffee shops through her college career, fostering her vision of one day opening a coffee shop of her own that would be the perfect blend of life’s simple joys: food, conversation, music, art, and delicious coffee. Jeff and Nikki Petrocelli, a couple who frequented
a coffeehouse that Kristin worked at, quickly bonded with the young visionary over the dream they shared: creating a coffee shop that would nurture the souls of their community. Through twists and turns, setbacks and location fall-throughs, the dedicated partners and their brainchild prevailed: Soul Brew was born! The first Soul Brew location in Saint James, NY opened its doors in November of 2016. Within 4 years, Kristin Walsh Lambros and her husband Dean Lambros, joined by Jeff and Nikki Petrocelli, opened two more Soul Brew locations on Long Island: Soul Brew Huntington was born in September of 2019, closely followed by Soul Brew Bellmore in 2021. This is your reminder that you can create a life that you don’t need a vacation from.
