NEW BEDFORD (WBSM) — Perk up, coffee lovers; Mirasol's cafe in New Bedford will soon open for the summer season.

We all have our favorite spots and know the sadness we sometimes feel for seasonal establishments that close their doors for the winter. Yet at the same time, it gives us something to look forward to as the summer days come back around.

For many locals, Mirasol's Express, located in downtown New Bedford, is one of the places to go. The good news is that the cafe will reopen its doors during the Memorial Day weekend on Friday, May 24.

While the Dartmouth location remains open year-round, there's something special about enjoying your favorite coffee and pastries with a beautiful waterfront view.

Nestled on the pier inside the old Wharfinger building, the Express Cafe may be small, but it still offers a menu similar to that of its Dartmouth location.

The grab-and-go cafe is a faster way to pick up your favorite goodies without the stress of long lines you sometimes find yourself stuck in when visiting the Dartmouth spot.

It offers window and indoor service but no indoor dining. It is perfect for a morning commute to work or a quick "Chippi" pick-me-up to keep you going throughout the day.

As we eagerly await the official opening of the Fairhaven cafe, New Bedford is just another spot to keep us hanging on until then. Unfortunately, there's no exact date for when that will happen, but it feels pretty close when we still have these locations to suffice until then.
