Long lineups at Luke's Diner pop-up in Toronto

Luke's Diner took over four Toronto cafes this morning in anticipation of the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival, which hits Netflix on November 25. Today, October 5, was the also the day Gilmore Girls premiered back in 2000. So to celebrate, The Rolling Pin, Milano Coffee and both Infuse Cafes became Luke's from 7 a.m. to noon.

Fans turned up in droves, not only for the free coffee and taste of Stars Hollow, but also to ask for, "Coffee, please. And a shot of cynicism."

While this takeover wasn't exactly transformative, those who visited seemed pleased with the signage as well as the Luke's-branded cups.

Hopefully this promotion will keep everyone satisfied until Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life premieres next month.
