Lucy’s or Luke’s: Fictional Coffee Shop turned Real in Bham

Lucy's or Luke's Diner

It’s the 16th Anniversary of the iconic show Gilmore Girls, and one of our favorite, local coffee shops decided to celebrate.

Thanks to Netflix more than 200 coffee shops nationwide transformed into Luke’s Diner because of their new premiere of Gilmore Girls coming back full throttle. You can tune into the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiere on November 25th.

Lucy’s had a line down the street starting early this morning. They even ran out of coffee around 11am. For some this was a dream come true. For Lucy’s it was an extremely busy Wednesday. Fans flounced from a few local “Luke’s,” the Abbey was also a participant in this transformation.

What better way to get excited about your favorite character’s return to the screen than falling in love with them all over again.


Thanks Lucy’s for treating Birmingham to the Luke’s experience.
