Character Description

You'll most likely find Twyla behind the counter (or at your table) in Schitt's Creek's Café Tropical. Just don't ask about her family.


She is always ready to lend a sympathetic ear to the Rose family, even if there are other customers waiting for service, and if the Roses' problems might seem petty compared to, say, having a father in prison. Twyla is particularly proud of her signature food creations, like the 'Greens-Free Salad", the "Surprise-Me-Smoothie", and the "Meadow-Harvest Smoothie", which changes everyday depending on her mood.

Twyla won millions of dollars in the lottery has been keeping it a secret to the town because she doesn’t want people to treat her differently. And despite the fact that she "could be anywhere doing anything," she's decided she already has everything she needs, managing the café and listening to everyone's stories; it makes her smile. Alexis tells Twyla that it's okay to spend a bit of money on herself every so often, if it's for something special — so Twyla decides to buy the café; She plans on renaming the place "Twyla's Café Tropical", or maybe simply "Twyla's Café".
