Mark this one down in the diaries, guys. At midday tomorrow Gelato Messina in Richmond will officially transform into the Double R Diner from the 90s cult series Twin Peaks (you know, the show everyone on your feed won’t stop talking about). It’s going the whole enchilada too: vinyl floors, neon signs and damn fine coffee. The place “where the pies go to die”.
And because it’s Messina, they’re also unleashing three new Twin Peaks-inspired gelato flavours and a limited edition cherry gelato pie. And we MEAN limited edition: there’s only 50 slices of this bad boy to go around. First come, first to get bragging rights.
The collab is all part of a big partnership between Messina, Stan (who are broadcasting the brand new season of Twin Peaks) and Pedestrian. The pop-up will run for four hours, between midday and 4pm, after which Messina will shed its diner-esque disguise and return to the addictive gelato-factory we all know and love.
Where: Gelato Messina, 164 Swan St Richmond
When: 12pm – 4pm, Thursday 25 May (tomorrow)
