Is the Twin Peaks Cherry Pie Really That Good?
The answer is yes.
Fans of the re-emerging show can indulge in a damn fine cup of coffee and a warm slice of cherry pie at Twede’s Cafe in North Bend, WA (aka the Double R Diner). Pro-tip: order it with a side of vanilla ice cream. Not planning on visiting the Pacific Northwest anytime soon? Twede's ships the pie anywhere in the U.S. Place your order soon to win at all of your holiday parties.
Other filming locations can be visited nearby, but we recommend driving ten minutes to Snoqualmie Falls. Recognize this shot from the show’s opening credits?
The TL500 award-winning Salish Lodge & Spa (The Great Northern Hotel to you, superfans) overlooks the falls. This is an optimal spot for a photo op that will make your friends jealous, regardless of whether or not they watch the show. Two words: epic waterfall.
While still in Snoqualmie, stop along Reinig Road and scope out the area where the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign was planted for the show. You’ll know you’re in the right place when the road curves and the overwhelming beauty of Mount Si locks into view. You’ll just know.
Before bidding "Twin Peaks" adieu, you might want to head back for another slice of pie. Agent Cooper wasn't kidding:
