UK coffee retailer Coffee Friend has done the research and found ten of the most iconic cafes and restaurants from popular culture that do exist and that you can still visit.
1. The Blue Box Café - Breakfast at Tiffany's
Those who have seen the iconic 1961 movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, will remember the title-led opening scene of Audrey Hepburn’s character eating a croissant and drinking a coffee at Tiffany & Co’s flagship store in New York.
It wasn’t until 2017 that the store on 5th Avenue decided to open The Blue Box Café. Naturally you could order croissants and coffee, plus a number of other items.
Those who have seen Walter White's rise from science teacher to drug lord in the Breaking Bad series will be familiar with the chicken shop Los Pollos Hermanos, where a number of important scenes take place.
The diner itself doesn't exist - but was later franchised following the success of the series.
However, the scenes shown in the series at Los Pollos were actually shot at a Twisters branch in South Valley, New Mexico.
6. Cafe Debussy - Inception
Another French entry. Arguably the most famous scene in the Leonardo DiCaprio movie, Inception, is set in Café Debussy in Paris.
This is the moment where Cobb tells Ariadne how she is currently in a dream and that these dreams can be controlled before turning Paris into a small playground.
The café is now an Italian restaurant named Il Russo close to Segur Metro station.
Remember the scene in Love Actually, where Jamie (Colin Firth) tries to track down Aurelia? Then he finds her in a small town with cobbled streets and the whole village turns up?
Well, the scene filmed at her place of work is actually in Marseille, France, with the restaurant named Bar De La Marine in real life.
It sits right on the famous port in France’s second-largest city.

8. Double R Diner - Twin Peaks
For Twin Peaks fans, a delicious slice of cherry pie is just an order away at Twede's in North Bend, Washington, the home of the show’s Double R Diner.
The Double R Diner, owned by Norma Jennings in the series, featured in the original series in 1989 and the recent revival in 2017.
As a result of a fire in 2000, the Double R Diner backdrop was almost completely destroyed with Twede's needing a full makeover. But when filming commenced again in 2015 for Twin Peaks: The Return, it’s said the Double R Diner renovations were left after filming ended - rebirthing the legacy.
9. Monk's Cafe - Seinfeld
One of TV's most iconic cafes, Monk's Cafe, features heavily through the 90s series Seinfeld.
For fans of the show looking to visit the famous coffeehouse, the restaurant is actually named Tom's Restaurant and it's located on Broadway in New York City.
Unfortunately, it was only the exterior that was used for the show. But the eatery still remains a popular TV buff hotspot.
10. Luke's Diner - Gilmore Girls
In the famous diner, where everyone knows each other in the show - Luke's Diner plays a big part in shaping Lorelai and Rory's world.
Writer and creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino claims that the diner came from a feeling she received when visiting the town of Washington Depot in Connecticut.
This is somewhat of a trick answer, as Luke's Diner was born out of the many eateries in the small-town neighbourhood.
