    If you've been waiting for months for a 'Golden Girls'-themed cafe to open in northern Manhattan, you may be in luck.

    Rue La Rue Cafe posted a picture of its mugs on Facebook on Friday, as the restaurant nears an anticipated opening soon.

    It's the brainchild of Michael LaRue, a close friend of the late Rue McClanahan, one of the stars of the show. 

    The cafe will be on Broadway between 187th and 188th in Washington Heights. 

    Earlier this month, Rue La Rue posted a replica Walk of Fame star for McClanahan, which will be placed at the restaurant's threshold. 

    An exact opening date is not yet clear. On Sept. 4, the cafe said it did not have one set but would post on its Facebook page when the time came. 

    The show, which ran on NBC for seven seasons, featured McClanahan as the feisty widow Blanche Devereaux.
