Haunted Café , Empire District in Coos Bay, Oregon
by Alicja Martynek
(Coos Bay, Oregon)
There is a coffee shop in the Empire district of Coos Bay that seems to have unexplainable events take place. It seems the area was an old port, haven to drunken sailors and woman of the night.
Drinking coffee there one evening, I turned to talk to someone, went to take a drink, and my once full cup of coffee was now empty and clean as a whistle.
Locals talk of apparitions of olden day sailors in the coffee shop. Objects move, fly off tables and hit the walls. Customers talk of feeling the hair stand on the back of their heads, cold spots in the café. If allowed back into the kitchen on certain days the temp drops immediately, 20 degrees for no reason.
On my way out I felt something bump against me, no one around. I know what I felt.
