Interesting spot to pull off. There are several picnic tables in back with a great view of a mountain waterfall. T shirts, hoodies, and hot chocolate, what more could you want?

Love this stop! It's silly, fun, and it's worth parking and going through their walk-through window if you have the time...lots of goodies and treats and souvenirs. The couple that runs the place are awesome! And despite the kitsch, they really know beans about coffee!

Grab a coffee and meander around this little stand that highlights the area’s legend, Bigfoot. There’s a tall Henry from Henry and the Henderson’s statue, another Bigfoot statue and a sign for the Cascade mountains. Cute, touristy, and a great break up to a car...drive.More

This place is so charming with a world class view that cannot be beat. DO get out of your car and walk around - take in the waterfall and amazing view of Mt. Index. Sit a spell and relax. Ask questions and have them answered....Pick up a park pass. Read about local folklore and pick up unique gifts. I had a Chai which was delicious. I ended up here several times while in the area. Huge area for pets to explore as well which was an added touch.More

My hubby and I recently visited the area and stopped off here on our way to Leavenworth. We both ordered the “special of the day” which was the Ghirardelli Mocha..it was so good! We ended up going back the next day and they had a...different special that we decided to try, the maple toffee nut latte..again, delicious! This place is also where they filmed a scene from the movie Harry and the Hendersons...look up behind the coffee shop and you will spot a huge waterfall..I believe it’s Bridal Veils. Definitely recommend a stop here not only for a picture with Big foot but for their delicious coffee!!More

We passed Espresso Chalet on our way to Cashmere; we stopped on our return. What a cute an quirky little coffee stop. And yes, there is a drive-thru, but it really is worth a stop! There are several varieties of espresso, coffee drinks from which...to choose. everything is very good. There is a lovely area to view the mountains and sip your coffee for awhile. Service is friendly and fast. The owners are really nice people. But, the Sasquatch items are just the best. It was a revelation to find out that this was the area that the film Harry and the Hendersons was filmed. There is a large statue of Harry there for pictures. A really fun place.More

Interesting place to stop and grab a coffee or milkshake. Take a few photos with various sasquatch signs; order a big foot cookie with an Americano and sit at one of the picnic tables and admire the mountain view. The menu is limited so don't...stop for anything more than drinks or cake snacks. No meals or sandwiches. Friendly and helpful staff. One of them owns a Chevelle Malibu 327ci so we asked for a photo as a nice looking 1960's muscle car 😁More

I have always stopped at this Espresso Chalet for a photo op with Harry from Harry & the Hendersons. You can't miss it--especially with the kids! They sell a large variety of fun Sasquatch knick-knacks from paw mugs to warning signs. For the outdoorsy folks,...they sell various maps of the area and North Cascades. The surrounding mountains are simply gorgeous. Not until this last trip did I actually purchase a latte. While it was not the best, the barista was friendly and helpful in planning a trip to Deception Falls and other stops along the drive over Steven's Pass. They also have 10 different milk options available. TEN! Even a local goat milk. Talk about options. Two Heads Ups: -Do not to pull your car up in front of the chalet or you will be blocking the drive-up (I was unaware...and they will be sure to make it clear to you). -There are limited bathrooms in and around Index. They have a port-a-potty here for emergencies and you will be required to make a purchase.More

This is a cool little place to stop and refresh. The movie Harry and the Henderson's was filmed here. Couple of nice wood carvings of Bigfoot and a nice park area to drink your coffee and eat one of their famous "Bigfoot cookies" (it is...shaped like a foot print.More
