Gilmore Girls fans in Buffalo had a dream come true today: a taste of Luke's coffee in a local cafe.

On the 16th anniversary of the release of the pilot episode of the series, 200 coffee shops around the country served free coffee from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Customers at Sweet_ness 7 Cafe were more than happy to wait the extra time Wednesday morning to feel like they were grabbing coffee from the Lorelais' favorite diner.

The national event was just 7 weeks before the release of the much-anticipated Netflix mini series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
