Great vegan pizza!

Posted on 04 / 13 / 2012

We had been to Mellow Mushroom in North Carolina and Kentucky, and were excited to have one when we moved here. Their wheat-white mix crust is vegan and one of my favorites. They now offer Daiya vegan cheese, and they don't skimp on it. They have some tofu and tempeh options, though we recently found out the barbecue sauce we enjoyed on the tempeh contains honey. The teriyaki tempeh is vegan though. It can be a little expensive, but the crust is out of this world and makes for a special not-your-average pizza. Dining in is a fun experience, they have a large dining area and separate bar with fun modern decor. Now if they'd only deliver! It'd also be great if they matched some of their vegan pizza competitors such as Zpizza and went organic.

Pros: Healthy options, Very vegan friendly, Great dine-in atmosphere
Cons: No delivery, Not organic

Great pizza!

Fun place with great selection of salads, hoagies, and pizzas. Although the veg hoagies come with dairy cheese, you can ask for vegan cheese instead. You also have the option of "build your own" salad, hoagie, or pizza.

Pros: fun atmosphere, a lot of good choices
Cons: tends to get noisy

Yess!! Real vegan Pizza! Lots of beer...!

Posted on 04 / 04 / 2011

I have been to Mellow Mushroom 4 times since they opened last month. The pizza and all the veg choices are amazing. The first two times I went I got BBQ sauce base with tofu, Pineapples and Jalapenos, with the Daiya cheese. Soooo good! Then I tried the mega veggie which was amazing too. The only thing was the tofu on it was just that, plain ol tofu, so Next time I'll probably switch it out with tempeh. These first experiences were late night, around 11:30pm. We had to get our pizza to go for reasons unknown. It was super awkward and none of the staff seemed to know when they closed or if they were open. I'm pretty bummed about this because the website says they are open until 2am and 4am on the weekends. I hope they get all this straightened out because there aren't many, if any, late night places to get vegan food. The last time I went was during the day. Happy Hour! They have a great happy hour, half off all beers and they have like hundreds! Yum. My Fiance and I shared the Fun Guy, which is a 5 mushroom pizza with a mushroom vinaigrette as the base and we built our own salad. The food was excellent and the service was good even though it was pretty busy. The Atmosphere is loud, casual, young and fun. I will be spending lots of money there in the future.

Pros: spot on food, friendly staff, so many vegan choices!!
Cons: late night is iffy

    Just an FYI, the bbq sauce contains honey. I know some vegans eat it, some don't. Therefore some staff don't mention it while others do.
