DAVENPORT, Iowa — In celebration of a Gilmore Girls revival coming on Netflix, Luke’s Diner has overtaken a local coffee shop.

The Coffee Hound at 2642 Brady Street became Luke’s for a day. And on top of bringing the fictional restaurant to life, they were offering free coffee.

The takeover was set to last from 6 a.m. until noon on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

More than 200 coffee shops across the country transformed into replicas of Luke’s Diner, the show’s familiar eatery, to promote the series’ Netflix revival this fall. The day also marked the 16th anniversary of the show’s premiere.

Those craving all things Gilmore were invited to grab a free cup of coffee in tribute to Lorelai and Rory, the caffeine-addicted mother and daughter at the center of the show. The cups featured quotes from the show printed behind custom Luke’s coffee sleeves.

Netflix is bringing back the comedy-drama on Nov. 25 as a four-episode miniseries titled “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” Stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel will reprise their roles.
