Beacon Hill will get a little bit juicier this month as a suburban juice shop that previously operated two locations in the city makes its return to Boston. Nourish Your Soul, a cold-pressed juice shop with a heavy emphasis on accessible healthy food, could open within the next few weeks at 282 Cambridge St. as crews finalize construction and the shop schedules its inspections.
“When I saw it, it just felt so right to me,” said founder Susan Cabana of the Cambridge Street storefront. “When I left South Boston, I knew that we had created a great community in Boston with our products. I was looking to see where we would be a good fit [to return to the city].”
She founded Nourish Your Soul with a goal of “helping people heal through a way of living that incorporates movement, meditation, gratitude, and sustaining their bodies through nutrition,” per the website. She opened the first Nourish Your Soul location in West Medford in 2012 and added a Back Bay shop, inside of Healthworks gym, in September 2015.
A third Nourish Your Soul previously operated inside what is now the Everybody Fights gym in South Boston, but that location and the Back Bay shop both closed down. In October 2016, Cabana opened a store in Winchester, her hometown.
“We’ve been growing and expanding our menu in the year that we’ve been here,” she said of the Winchester shop. “Exciting to now be back into Boston.”
In the years of operating Nourish Your Soul, Cabana has expanded beyond cold-pressed juices and smoothies, adding a lineup of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.
For the Beacon Hill shop, customers can expect to see vegan soups, multiple salads, and toasts, including avocado, hummus, and egg salad sandwiches. For breakfast, there will be items like overnight oats, chia pudding, and eggs with turmeric sauce.
“I still feel very passionate that food can heal you on a lot of levels,” Cabana said. “What I have learned is you also have to offer choices to people...giving people options for lunch and dinner and breakfast. To make healthy food more accessible to people, I think that’s the part I’ve expanded upon.”
Cabana expects construction to conclude next week, and if inspections go smoothly, Nourish Your Soul could open in Beacon Hill as early as February 12. To start, the shop will operate from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends, subject to change.
