This place is quite unusual and has lots more to it than food.
Something I like about Mellomello is the place is run as non profit by volunteers to promote the running of an ethically sound and aware business. It is 100% independent and has been in existence for over 5 years and continues to develop and go from strength to strength.
The menu was revamped / expanded in 2011 and there is now a full time kitchen team. The word 'vegan' seems to appear regularly through the offerings on the menu (good clear labelling, also of gluten free). In my time living in Liverpool the food here is easily the tastiest of any of the vego restaurants that have come and gone. The soups are great, mains are brilliant and the cakes sensational. The menu gets updated every few months and its clear that the people in the kitched are not only capable chefs, they are also imaginative.
There is a big, big choice of booze, mostly if not all organic. There is a back room with a stage where they have daily performances etc of music, stand up comedy etchings - the events listings is at the back of the menu. I would prefer that they had the kitchen open later than it does but with the various events that they have in the evenings, I suppose it gets a bit busy to try to also operate the kitchen service.
Mega chilled out and unpretentious atmo, a welcome alternative to the 'Desperate scousewives' / 'Only way is Essex', superficial type places of which there is an abundance in the city centre. Staff are fab.
Down stair is a rehearsal studio and I also seen a sign for a dance studio.
Location is central and the door in is actually on Parr St.
