The New York eatery themed around the saucy seniors recently opened its doors, and devoted followers of the show are already celebrating the ultimate place for just "being a friend."

Welcome home, ladies. (Not my house, new cafe called Rue La Rue. Brought the gang with me for an outing.)

The walls of Rue La Rue are covered in wallpaper, photos and memorabilia that bring back memories of the Miami-based sitcom, and the menu is filled with nods to the series, too — from Sophia's "Picture It" roast to Blanche's Gentleman Caller's coffee beans.

Of course, it's no surprise which menu item has proved to be the early favorite among fans.

Of course we start with cheesecake at the Golden Girks restaurant #brunch#cheesecake

After all, there was never a situation on the show that couldn't be helped with a cheesecake — or two.

So excited for this cheesecake! #ruelaruecafe #goldengirls

One "Golden Girl" appears a bit more often than the others among the mementos at Rue La Rue — namesake Rue McClanahan. The cafe is a joint enterprise between the late actress' son, Mark Bish, and her pal, Michael J. LaRue.

But it's clear that nostalgia-loving customers are tuned into all the "Girls."
