What would our fictional friends be without their favorite diner? If you screamed “NOTHING!” at your screen -- you’re absolutely right. In the spirit of Twin Peaks: The Return coming out Sunday, we’ve rounded up the best fictional diners on the planet.
Leslie Knope is the kind of powerhouse woman that you assume has to be fueled by a diet of strictly kale or cocaine. The real answer is somewhere in between: waffles and whipped cream. Lots of whipped cream. JJ’s Diner is her secret weapon in her fight against all evil things, especially the library.
A place for coffee and highly complicated love. Two things we all could easily get addicted to. If you love to talk fast over burgers and fries, welcome home. Just try not to piss off Luke.
What's the deal with a cafe being on a list of diners? We are the rule makers, friend. Monk's Cafe is the only place to go when you're craving a Big Salad. It's also the best place to talk about nothing.
Joe's Pie Diner (under new management, now Lulu's Pies)
Hello! How ya been? The diner we came to love for it’s oddly accurate names. Anyone want a slice of Earl Murders Me Because I’m Having an Affair pie? Anyone? Anyone? Joe’s Pie Diner is so much more than that though -- it signifies new beginnings. Now that’s something to sing about.
Double R Diner
The diner of our dreams. Where you will either be served by a murder or his badass wife. It’s a real coin toss of a situation. But the coffee is damn good. It’s the perfect place to discuss your theory that Audrey Horne *might* still be alive.
