HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — One of south Mississippi's most historic restaurants is reopening.

WDAM-TV reports that the Coney Island Cafe in downtown Hattiesburg will begin operating again Monday.

The restaurant, founded in 1923, had closed after Billy Fokakis, its third-generation owner, died after being diagnosed with cancer.

Now, Fokakis' son and daughter will be the fourth generation to run the Coney Island Cafe.

Kayla Fokakis announced the reopening Saturday. She says the family hopes to keep the food and atmosphere the same, although the cafe will no longer serve blue plate lunches.
