Central Perk of Friends fame coming to Toronto
Pop-up shop will be 'meticulously detailed to recreate the experience' of the classic sitcom
Torontonians will soon be able to hang out, sip lattes and maybe catch a rendition of Smelly Cat at Central Perk, the coffee shop where Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler spent most of their time on the hit sitcom Friends.
A pop-up café inspired by the fictional Manhattan coffee shop will open June 24 on King Street West.
"Our pop-up shop will be meticulously detailed to recreate the experience of one of the most popular shows of all time," reads the replica café's Facebook page.
"Want to take selfies with the famous orange couch? Or order a coffee from our baristas all named Gunther? We will have pastries, donuts and coffees inspired by your favourite Friend's characters and their legendary personalities."
Central Perk will also play host to Friends-inspired contests and dole out prizes to patrons who come dressed as one of the show's six main characters.
