Two popular eating spots Detroiters have great affection for -- Avalon International Breads and AmericanConey Island --  are reopening.

American Coney Island at 114 W. Lafayette, which closed March 24, plans to reopen on Friday for carryout.  Customers can request curbside pickup. Temporary hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

"We are back! We have missed all our customers and are looking forward to seeing you all again," owner Grace Keros said. 

During its shutdown, the restaurant worked on shipping coney kits and feeding firefighters, ambulance crews and police. 

Avalon will reopen its original shop at 422 W. Willis, off Cass Avenue in the Cass Corridor, next Tuesday for curbside service and takeout Tuesday-Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Its other locations will remain closed.

On Facebook, the bakery says: "We are thrilled/relieved/ nervous/ grateful" to return.

"Our new menu is coming along nicely!," the post adds. "Our seasonal veggie quiche is Michigan asparagus and Holtz Farms potatoes, with mozzarella cheese all baked up with Michigan eggs and Guernsey Farms Dairy cream in our all-butter crust. The seasonal meat quiche has Dearborn Sausage Company ham, potatoes, Brother Nature spinach, and feta!"
