Fairhaven’s Mystic Cafe Sold Has Been Sold But Its Story Isn’t Over
The owners of Mystic Cafe have made the tough decision to sell their beloved restaurant in Fairhaven.
After 10 years, Bela Valentim and her husband, Fernando Valentim, are closing their chapter of the 398 Main St. restaurant effective Jan. 28.
After that date, the Valentims say the restaurant will be under new ownership as a completely different food business.
Fans should not despair. They will still have an opportunity to experience Mystic's delicious food in a new way.
The Shack will be the new place for food from the Mystic menu. The owners are focusing on a catering business there.
Bela Valentim said that this new addition will give her time to focus solely on that catering business.
"We'll still be available, but in a different way," she said.
Mystic's phone number will also remain the same, so don't worry about being unable to contact them.
When asked what she wanted to tell her customers, Bela Valentim was full of gratitude for every person who has made Mystic Cafe what it is today.
"Thank you to everyone involved for keeping us going all these years," she said. Thank you to customers and employees who carried us through and above water."
Although the news is bittersweet, new business opportunities are on the horizon for the owners.
If you are looking for one more meal in the cafe, make sure to stop by before the end of this month.
Mystic Cafe is open Monday to Friday, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.
