“Gilmore Girls” fans, you might want to put down your coffee mug for this.


You could get a free cup of Luke’s Diner coffee on Wednesday!

In participation with Netflix, two central Pa. coffee shops will transform into mini Luke’s Diners for a day, serving free cups of Luke’s coffee to the first 250 customers, according to a Facebook post.

Tomato Pie Café in Harrisburg and Brew Crumberland’s Best in New Cumberland will join about 250 cafes across the country in bringing Luke’s Diner to life in honor of the 16th anniversary of the “Gilmore Girls” pilot airdate.

“Luke’s Coffee Day” also comes about two months ahead of the Nov. 25 Netflix release of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” a four-episode sequel.

In addition to coffee, Brew Crumberland’s Best will serve pastries seen on the show – Ah, Danish Day, the happiest of all days! – and will offer a chance to win a free three-month subscription to Netflix, according to a Facebook post.

Other Pennsylvania participants include Hubbub Coffee in Philadelphia and Radnor, Big Dog Coffee in Pittsburgh and Bookshelf Café in Pittsburgh. See the full list here.

The giveaway will run from 7 a.m. to noon.

After all, nothing says coffee like 6 – er 7 – in the morning!
