Beach Bakery Gets Go-Ahead for Renovations

The Westhampton Beach Village Board approved Simon Jorna's application on Thursday night.

During a brief Westhampton Beach Village Board meeting on Thursday evening, the village board approved a much-anticipated special exception permit, submitted by the owner of the Beach Bakery Simon Jorna.

With an approval in hand, Jorna says he will begin a renovation project that will result in the conversion of his 12-seat bakery into a 32-seat luncheonette.

Jorna's attorney, J. Brandford Kenealy, said the project will take about seven months to complete, with a grand reopening Memorial Day weekend.

Work, he said, is expected to start as soon as building permits are in place, which will be around the beginning of November.

"We have a few more documents to file first," said Brandford.

The improvements, according to the village, will put the bakery in compliance with a number of code violations that were issued in relation to an apartment above the bakery.

When you hear Barry say "You didn't build that," think of a guy like Simon. He built it and he's rebuilding it. Go Simon!
