Unveiling the Bigfoot Legacy at Espresso Chalet

Espresso Chalet, located on Washington's Highway 2, is more than just a coffee stop; it's a tribute to Bigfoot lore and local history. The roadside coffee stand, owned by Mark and Sandy Klein for over three decades, has become a legendary spot not just for its coffee but for its trio of Bigfoot statues. Contrary to internet rumors, the original Bigfoot statue from the 1987 film “Harry and the Hendersons” was removed after filming.
