Foto Feature: Crowd throngs Shea Station cafe for grand opening

Residents crowded the new Shea Station cafe for its grand opening Saturday in the Pelham train depot.

Owned by Pelhamite Mimi Humphery, the cafe welcomed customers to a ceremony to honor the opening and try the store’s coffees and treats. The menu offers everything from smoothies and coffees to a variety of pastries.

“Shea Station will be a staple and main stop for anyone along the way to get into the city,” said Ann Horowitz, a Pelham resident. “And certainly, whenever I go in, I’ll stop by. But I think it’s a great location and will be used by people who are just in town and running errands and just passing through as it has a great menu. And it seems to have a wonderful staff who know what they’re doing.”

Shea Station brings coffee and snacks back to the historic Pelham train station for the first time since 2021, replacing Lois and Cliff Teller’s Rolling Steam.

On its first day in business, the cafe bustled with many Pelham residents eager to try the offerings and support the Humphrey family.

“What stands out to me about Shea Station is the number of people that have shown up and all the smiles that I’m seeing showing how happy everybody is to see that the place is opening up again,” said Horowitz. “I mean there truly was such a great cause behind it, as I know Mimi wants to make it a very inclusive place, and I can see that happening already from day one—something truly amazing to see.”

The celebration included a DJ, samples of pastries and flowers for sale. All around the space, friends, neighbors and strangers enjoyed the drinks and treats as they took in the new operation.

    What a fantastic reintroduction of this space to the community. The place is completely transformed, upscale with a great menu, and we should all be thankful that this family has invested in our community in this way.
