Double R Diner
The Double R Diner (first known as Railroad Diner and briefly as Marty's Railroad Café)[1] was the local diner in the town of Twin Peaks, Washington, located at the intersection of Main Street and Falls Avenue.[2] It was owned and operated by Norma Jennings from April 1969.[1]

Open all days of the week and holidays, the Double R was a town institution and oftentimes a hang-out, specializing in homemade pie and coffee. It was also a food provider for the town through the Meals on Wheels program[3] and a sponsor of the Miss Twin Peaks Contest.[4]

It was later the flagship store of a franchise known as Norma's Double R.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

The eight original props of the menu used in Twin Peaks were blank inside, but the exterior is correctly reproduced in the menu displayed in The Secret History of Twin Peaks.

In the pilot and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, the Double R Diner scenes were filmed at the Mar-T Café, formerly known as Thompson's Café and now known as Twede's Café, located at 137 West North Bend Way in North Bend, Washington. For subsequent episodes of the original series, the diner interiors were recreated on a soundstage. The Mar-T sign was later explained in The Secret History of Twin Peaks as a holdover from the diner's original incarnation as Marty's Railroad Cafe, which was named after Norma's father.

The real cafe was gutted by a fire in 2000, and reopened with interior design that bore little resemblance to the Twin Peaks-era look.

For the 2017 limited series, Twede's Cafe was remodeled to restore the original Double R's appearance, with the renovations remaining after shooting had wrapped. Location filming at Twede's Cafe took place between September 14 and September 18, 2015.[14]

Playing LynchEdit

DoubleRPlayingLynch

An advertisement for the diner was used to tease David Lynch's project Playing Lynch before its official announcement.

It is interesting to note that the advertisement states the diner to have opened in 1984. However, this is impossible, as Norma stated in 1989 that she had been working there for 20 years.
