Invite everyone you know.

We're #blessed with so many awesome coffee shops all through the city. From cat cafes, to chemistry inspired cafes that remind us an awful lot of Breaking Bad, there's no shortage of unique cafes in NYC.

While it's not something we ever really thought of ourselves, a Golden Girls themed cafe does sound pretty interesting.

A long time friend of Rue McClanahan, the actress behind Golden Girls'  most promiscuous and free-spirited leading lady, Blanche, will be opening up 'The Ru La Rue Cafe' in Washington Heights sometime this September.

Michael J. LaRue was a longtime friend of McClanahan, and even inherited many of the actresses' possessions and Golden Girls mementos upon her passing in 2010.

LaRue plans to decorate the cafe with the various items he inherited from McClanahan, along with some of her personal belongings.

Golden Girls leading lady, Betty White, who played the naive, lovable Rose on the hit show, is said to be planning on making an appearance at the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the cafe.


The cafe will be open from 6 a.m to 10 p.m on weekdays, and 6 a.m to 11 p.m on weekends, and will serve a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, and desserts.


While no Golden Girls inspired recipes have been announced, we're hoping the menu will feature some of the famous cheesecake that our four favorite girls used to gather together around at the close of some of our favorite episodes.
