So you like to sit with a nice cup of coffee whilst watching your favourite TV shows, but have you ever noticed people drinking coffee on your favourite shows? Did you know that many of the most popular TV shows actually have a large proportion of their scenes based in a coffee shop? Here’s our top 3.
Coming in at number 3 is the “Rear Window Brew” from the TV show “Pretty little liars”
This one has it all – a lovely setting, great coffee, and to top it all off – gossip! Who doesn’t love a good gosip over a brew, right? Did you know that the name of the coffee shop “Rear Window Brew” is a reference to Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” which makes it even more cool in our opinion!
At number 2 we have the Monk’s cafe as featured in Seinfeld.
Set in New York, the “Monk’s Cafe” is frequented by Kramer, Elaine, George and Jerry whilst they discuss their crazy antics of their day to day life. Seinfeld is one of the most popular comedies of its time, with humor being made of every situation, no matter how stressful, we like to think that coffee had a bit of an influence in both the humour, and the crazyness!
And coming in in the top spot, number 1 is… *drumroll please* (can you guess yet?) That’s right, it’s Central Perk from Friends!
If you’ve never seen Friends before, we have to ask – where have you been?! Young or old, Friends has been around for a long time, and good old Central Perk, aptly named due to its proximity to Central Park is the setting for some of the most memorable scenes of the shows 10 year run (and many many re-runs!)
Did you know that all 10 seaons of Friends ranked in the top 10 of the “television seasons” ratings? We’re fairly certain that, if it was a real coffee shop, Central Perk would also rank in the top 10 of coffee shops worldwide!
Initially directors thought a coffee shop would be too “hip” (fancy that!) favouring a diner type setting instead, but they eventually came round and allowed it to be centred around our beloved java!
So there you have it, there are many famous coffee shops in many many popular shows, why not check them out on an on demand streaming service, or use something such as a the Starbox smart TV box – whilst enjoying a cup of your favourite coffee, of course.
