Java Nation Exiting Harbor, Heading to Bridgehampton

Sag Harbor café finds a new home after losing lease — but the new location is outside the village.

After 17 and a half years in the Shopping Cove in the heart of Sag Harbor Village, Java Nation will uproot and move to Bridgehampton, Curbed Hamptons reports.

The café and coffee roaster's month-to-month agreement with landlord Bruce Slovin , when Slovin told owners Andres and Cheryl Bedini to be out by Jan. 31. But , as the Bedinis refused to leave on short notice. Andres Bedini said at the time that he needs to bring in professionals to relocate certain equipment, like Java Nation's roaster, and he told his landlord to either give him more time or take him to court.

Cheryl Bedini emailed Curbed Hamptons saying that Java Nation will close Sunday at 11:59 p.m. and start moving into 112 Maple Lane in Bridgehampton, near the railroad station. She said the new space will be three times the size and they intend to broaden their wholesale and retail operation. The café side of the business is expected to open in a few weeks.

This sounds like an interesting location for Java Nation. Might do very well at this new site.

Sag Harbor will not be the same....it was such a big part of the community. After work my daughter and I would visit - it was a destination to us. Sadly missed in Sag Harbor.

1st some crazy lady made a stink to the board of health about dog's being allowed in stores in Sag Harbor and now Java Nation is gone entirely from the Village...people should remember that it is the charm of the area that made it so popular and that it was once known as a NON-Hampton place in the Hamptons...I feel the magic is slowly slipping away from the area

I'm at the Rogers Memorial Library right now, where this post is coming from. I was distressed to visit Sag Harbor and find that Java Nation was no longer there. I've had to move several times and don't get out to the south fork often, even though I went to Pierson High School. I'm glad that Cheryl and Andrew were not forced out of business! I'm headed to the train station right now! I haven't seen them in quite a while. ---- Estelle Edwards [now residing in Sound Beach, but still has a post office box in Riverhead!]
