First Review by veganamanda

Far Less Than Satisfied - Edit

I think it is great that Mellow Mushroom offers a vegan crust, vegan cheese, and many veggie toppings as choices. This is all a step in the right direction, but I had a very unpleasant time. After telling my waitress I am vegan and ordering my pizza, I waited for about half an hour for them to bring me a pizza with cheese on it (not the vegan cheese I ordered). So I waited another half an hour for them to bring me a medium sized pizza that had zero to no flavor with half warmed ingredients on top. They didn't take my special requests with grace. I assumed that a franchise that takes the time to market to vegans would also have good tasting vegan options. I payed for my $30 pizza which I did not eat. I will not be returning to this Mellow Mushroom in the future.

Pros: great pizza (if you're not vegan)

Cons: over priced, bland vegan options

Yeah! - Edit

Coming from Europe, I could hardly imagine a countrywide pizza chain having vegan pizza (with vegan cheese and all) on all their menus. A delicious, filling, real pizza! I figured they have no vegan starter or dessert which is really a pity. On the other hand, I had a medium pizza and I could not even finish it... so I did not really need a starter or dessert. The first non-veg place I visited for some time where a vegan dish is not so light and "healthy" that it in fact leaves me hungry (yes, I am a bit fed up with salads and wraps and other "light" stuff). I was so happy about the pizza that I did not check for other vegan main courses but I just read on HC there were even alternatives...

Funny decoration (I'd call it wannabee hippie) and friendly staff.

Pros: vegan pizza, friendly staff

Cons: no vegan starters or desserts

Surprised - Edit

I was happy with the experience at Mellow Mushroom. I got a BBQ tofu hoagie. It was really good and the waitress was very helpful about asking the cook what was vegan. I also go a free drink for liking them on facebook. I subtract a star because I see in the description here that there is honey in the tofu, which I didn't know. Bummer!

Pros: nice staff

Cons: sells meat
