Seinfeld fans rejoice! On Jan. 13, 2014, the popular sitcom's stars Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander were spotted outside of Tom's Restaurant on the Upper West Side in New York City. 

The diner's exterior was used for the gang's favorite coffee shop, where they often met to discuss the day's events. The hot spot also inspired the popular 1981 Suzanne Vega song "Tom's Diner."

Alexander, who played the bald-headed George Costanza on the '90s sitcom, was dressed in his character's signature casual attire while filming. 

In a recent Reddit chat, Seinfeld talked about the show that put him on the map.

"The real pitch, when Larry and I went to NBC in 1988, was we want to show how a comedian gets his material," he said of Seinfeld's initial concept. "The show about nothing was just a joke in an episode many years later, and Larry and I to this day are surprised that it caught on as a way that people describe the show, because to us it's the opposite of that."
