Yasss pizzaaa - Edit

Super surprised that mellow has options for veggies! I get their vegan cheese with multiple vegetable toppings and am always satisfied. Make sure you ask to veganize the bread because they put parmesan cheese on top of their crust.

Hits the pizza spot! - Edit

Great, fun decor as usual. Mellow Mushroom is known for being funky. This one is a little less so, but still cute. We ordered a veg out pizza then added buffalo (was told it's vegan) tofu and artichokes. I was not happy when I was charged $3 for a few small chunks, but overall I was happy with the taste. It was a great pizza.

They use Follow Your Heart vegan cheese.

Pros: Tofu and Tempeh , Vegan Cheese

Cons: Pricy toppings

Good vegan pizza - Edit

Trendy, fun restaurant with delicious vegan pizza. Me and my dad split a Thai dye pizza with daiya and tempeh (you can also get it with tofu). It was quite delicious. Ignore the one star review, our waitress was allergic to dairy and accomadated our vegan requests amazingly, even recommending a pizza for us! This restaurant was awesome and delicious

Pros: Vegan pizza!!!, reasonably priced, very good (in a non-conventional way)

Cons: dark dining room

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
