LOOK: Purple Door Coffee transforms into Luke’s Diner to celebrate Gilmore Girls revival


Dreams are coming true for girls across the country who grew up in the early 2000’s and saw a little bit of themselves in Rory Gilmore.

After a nine-year hiatus, Gilmore Girls is returning for a Netflix revival with the original cast in November. To celebrate the comeback and the show’s original air date 16 years ago, Netflix converted hundreds of coffee shops across the United States and Canada into Luke’s Diner — a regular hangout on the show.

Purple Door Coffee in Five Points — and the only transformed Luke’s in Denver — had a line down the block with people waiting hours for a free cup of coffee and to get a little taste of Stars Hollow, Connecticut.

2 Hr wait for a cup of amazing Luke's Coffee- Not! Gotta get to work.#gilmoregirlsrevival #lukesdiner #gilmoregirls
