Anyone who's watched "Gilmore Girls" has wanted to stop into Luke's Diner for a coffee – and now you'll get the chance.

Netflix is transforming 250 cafes across the country into the Stars Hollow hotspot on Wednesday, ahead of the show's revival next month, Entertainment Weekly reports.

There will be two of these pop-up Luke's in Minnesota, as well as two in nearby North Dakota, according to the Stars Hollow website. They are:

  • Dogwood Coffee Bar at 825 Carleton St. in St. Paul.
  • Swede Hollow Cafe at 725 Seventh St. E. in St. Paul.
  • The Red Raven Espresso Parlor at 916 Maine Ave. in Fargo.
  • Twenty Below Coffee at 14 Roberts St. N. in Fargo.

The cafes will be open from 7 a.m. to noon Wednesday, and will be complete with "Luke's Diner essentials," like T-shirts and branded aprons, Entertainment Weekly says. The first 250 people in the door at each pop-up cafe will get a free 12-ounce coffee and a "fun surprise under their custom 'Gilmore Girls' coffee sleeve," Eater reports.

Oct. 5 is the anniversary of the pilot episode of "Gilmore Girls," Eater says. And on Nov. 25, Netflix will release"Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life" – a revival of the popular show that includes four, 90-minute chapters.

The show will feature some of the original cast, including Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson and Kelly Bishop, as well as Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena.
