Twin Peaks is really
North Bend, Washington
The building was built in 1941 by Roy Thompson, and is still owned today by members of the family. As Thompson's Cafe, it saw World War II, the depression, and the boom of the timber industry. In the 1950's the business changed hands and became known as the Mar-T Cafe, continuing to be a regular stop for over the mountain pass travelers and locals. Then in 1990, on a scouting trip to find a location for his new movie/pilot/series, David Lynch found the setting of this cafe and further the whole Snoqualmie Valley, Perfect!! He then filmed the famous TV series "TWIN PEAKS" immortalizing the cafe's cherry pie and the "Damn fine cup of coffee".
Today the cafe is known as "Twede's Cafe" renown for great food, and plenty of it. A fire in the year 2000 closed it down for awhile but the cafe has since been remodeled and is now part of "Historic Downtown North Bend", Washington.
