Back in the first week of May, we shared with you the story about Mirasol’s opening their second location right here in New Bedford. This is an update to that story which you can read here.
The satellite of Mirasol’s Cafe that will be opening in the old Wharfinger Building, unlike its flagship cafe in Dartmouth, will neither have indoor seating nor a full menu.
Because of the success Mirasol’s had in Dartmouth when it introduced a walk-up window during the pandemic, they decided they could utilize the same format in New Bedford – a sort of “grab-and-go” model. The “walk-through” window comprises 25% of their revenue alone and since the New Bedford location is less than 1/3 of the size of the Dartmouth location, indoor seating simply isn’t an option. However, being so close to Rt. 18 means you can be in and out, hit the road for your work commute, or decide to grab your Chippi and stroll around downtown.
Luis Raposo, one of Mirasol’s managing partners, said that eventually Mirasol’s will open a third location in Fairhaven in the old Benny’s building.
At the New Bedford location, the hours will be Monday-Thursday from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. and Friday-Sunday from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. The grand opening will take place on July 1st.
