Luke's Diner From 'Gilmore Girls' Is Real And You Can Get Coffee On The House


This is not a drill: Luke's diner from "Gilmore Girls" is a real restaurant, and it's giving away free coffee.


OK, breathe: Allow me to explain.

On October 5, Netflix is converting about 200 cafes all across the United States and Canada into Luke's diners for the day.

And the best part? Those cafes will be giving out free cups of coffee, in order to make us all feel as special as Lorelai and Rory do.

A manager at Detroit's Avalon International Breads — one of the cafes that will be converted — confirmed to Eater that Netflix will be covering the cost of 250 12-ounce cups of coffee on October 5.

And you don't even have to date the owner.

A full list and map of the cafes that are turning into Luke's pop-ups can be found here.

The official website is still under construction until Wednesday, however. So, even though we don't have the full details, Eater reports that Netflix will provide the cafes with branded aprons and Luke's t-shirts.

Here's hoping the staff will wear the official Luke's uniform as well:


The pop-ups are only from 7 am until noon, while supplies last. So unlike the Gilmore girls, you should probably get up early if you want your free coffee.

Trust me: I've already canceled all my plans on October 5, just so I can get that coffee.

This is all to help promote the new four-episode revival, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," which premieres on Netflix on November 25.

So basically, Netflix is bribing us with coffee... as if we weren't already excited ENOUGH for this revival. But hey, I'm definitely not complaining or anything.

I mean, first "Gilmore Girls" came back. Then, Stars Hollow turned into real a place. Now, Luke's diner is real, too?!

We are truly blessed, "Gilmore Girls" fans.
