Dunkin' Donuts is one step closer to opening a location on Montauk Highway in Westhampton Beach. 

Earlier this week, the coffee chain submitted a formal application to the Village of Westhampton Beach for a 12-seat luncheonette in the north-east corner of a new 1,000 square-foot building being built for True Value Hardware.

According to Paul Houlihan, the village's building administrator, a luncheonette is a permitted use in that corridor of Montauk Highway. 

Patch readers have already had mixed reviews of a chain coffee store opening in the village. In an article published in October 2013 developer Paul Pawlowski knocked down the old photo shop and a single family house to make room for  True Value Hardware and the donut shop, readers posted the following:

However I am saddened by a chain/franchise "have to check with corporate" business coming here. We need more curb appeal, more community charm with a personal touch. Not sure will will get there this way.

The Dunkin' Donuts application will be before the village planning board on Feb. 13 at 7:00 p.m. at Village Hall.
