source for all organic coffee
in Asheville, NC
, located on Lexington Ave, just prior to the I-240 underpasses.
This coffee shop
not only provides great coffee and coffe related drinks (esspresso
, and really good hot chocolate
), but is also a home away from home
for many young people in the area. The Natural Mystic ("Mystics
" for short) also is a hub for many people, serving as a meeting place that is conveniently located just outside of the radius shown on most tourist maps (therefore, this place basically doesn't even exist
to tourists, so you never have to deal with that aspect of the town of Asheville).
Another perk to the Natural Mystic Coffee Shop is that it has it's own parking lot
. Normally, you must pay $1
to park here, however, if you park in one of the twelve
designated "Natural Mystic Parking" spots, parking there is free, all day, all night, forever.
This may not seem like a big deal
; however, if you've ever been to Asheville, you would learn to appreciate free parking
Lately the coffee house
has come under fire
from the police
because of a few people who got caught in the free parking lot across the street as well as many coffee
shop patrons who "look suspicious
