Any GFCI outlets needing reset?
Most likely not a breaker if it is only 3 outlets.
Otherwise, pull the outlets and see if you have any connection issues.
The connection issue may be with one of the oulets that is still working and therefore not passing power onto the other three.

The problem is a loose connection. If you know the routing of the calbes the problem is in either the first not working or the last working receptacle. It could be in a light fixture or switch box as well.
If the wries are connected using the push in back stab connection switch them tothe screw connection. Back stabs are a common source of this problem.
