Long line 'worth it' for Gilmore Girls' Luke's Diner

The line around the 86 Coffee Bar stretched around the block and was more than 1,000 deep early Wednesday. Not exactly your normal morning in Clifton Heights.
But then again, it isn't every day that this coffee house is transformed into Luke's Diner from the cult favorite show "Gilmore Girls, which is set for a Netflix reunion series on Thanksgiving weekend.

Sydney Roll, 22, her mother Amy Roll, 42, and the younger Roll's best friend, Maria Bruce, 21, of Delhi Township, were some of the first people in line.
"As soon as we heard about this we knew we had to go," Sydney Roll said.

They weren't disappointed. There were flannel shirts, a rack of mugs and black coffee (although fancy coffee drinks were on the menu too) at the Netflix-sponsored event.

The show is seeing a four-episode revival on the streaming service and is transforming 200 cafes across the country into Luke's Diners for a day, including 86 Coffee Bar, 2820 Vine St.

While waiting in line people talked about their favorite episodes and the best match for Gilmore daughter Rory.
Emily Fricke, 25, and her fiancé Jarod Burress, 24, drove an hour from Franklin, Ohio.
Fricke has seen the seven seasons 15 times.
"This is totally worth it," she said.
