Primark Shares First Pictures Of Its ‘Friends’ Themed Café In Manchester
Prepare to feel old - it's been over fourteen years since we said goodbye to Rachel, Ross, Chandler and co. when the last episode of Friends aired in 2004. But for those still grieving (aren't we all, tbh), take solace in the fact that a Friends-themed café opened in Manchester today, and it looks exactly like the real thing.
Could we BE anymore excited?
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of everyone's favourite American sitcom, the new café takes pride of place in Primark's Market Street branch, complete with comfy orange sofa and exposed brick walls.
Fans can indulge in an array of New York inspired drinks and snacks complete with signature huge coffee cups, with Primark also ensuring it will be environmentally friendly with ethically-sourced coffee beans and compostable cups on sale.
If you fancy taking home a memento from your special day, there will also be a selection of Friends' memorabilia available to buy in the form of t-shirts, tote bags and more. Well, it would be rude not to.

The opening of the new café follows the announcement of the 2019 anniversary edition of FriendsFest, which will tour London, Bristol, Milton Keynes and Manchester between 2nd to 29th August.
In a testament to the popularity of our favourite sixsome, the London dates are already completely sold out, with limited tickets available at the other three locations, so you might need to book fast to avoid disappointment.
For fans praying a reunion might be on the cards, we hate to burst your bubble but according to Lisa Kudrow - who played Phoebe - that would just be "sad".
"That was about people in their twenties, thirties," she admitted recently. "The show isn't about people in their forties, fifties. And if we have the same problems, that's just sad."
Perhaps we can take some solace in the fact that Primark's tribute will be a permanent fixture though?
See you on the sofa.
