(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Patients at Mayo Clinic and other downtown visitors will soon have a new place to grab a cup of joe.

Construction of a new Dunkin' Donuts is underway on 1st avenue. It'll be the first Dunkin' Donuts in Minnesota since the last one in Austin closed in 2005.

The store will be in the former Optical Vision with Flair space, which moved a few doors down and held a grand opening for its new location Thursday evening.

"I'm very excited for the reopening. I love my new location. It's very close to peace plaza and I love the wonderful job they did with the rebuild," Linda Smith said.

The new Dunkin' Donuts is expected to open sometime in June. It'll be the first of a number of new Dunkin's across the state.
