Every once in a while, a restaurant in Wichita goes into long hibernation, and fans fear the hibernation may never end.

For these three restaurants, however, the long stops are finally over – or almost over:

Pho Cuong, 6605 E. 37th St. North: This neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant, known for its pho and spring rolls, closed in January due to a family emergency. But it finally reopened last week. Its hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Jacky Chan Sushi, 7820 E. Harry: Owner Binh Tran had to leave the country after a death in the family, and he closed his longtime sushi restaurant while he was gone. But he’s back now and plans to reopen the restaurant on May 27, he said. Hours will be 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Watermark Coffee, inside Watermark Books, 4701 E. Douglas: The popular little cafe inside Watermark has had no food service since the pandemic began. Although it offers take-out food, it finally reopened earlier this month and even expanded its outdoor patio. The cafe serves coffee, pastries, cookies, sandwiches, salads and soup. Its hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
