Yummy! - Edit

I love some vegan pizza and get excited whenever a pizza place offers vegan cheese! They even have BBQ tofu as a topping choice. I always pile my pizza high with veggies! The atmosphere is fun and service is friendly. :)

Pros: Yummy, Fun Atmosphere, Friendly Service

New Menu Doesn't Affect Vegan Options - Edit

I dined at this Mellow Mushroom location in early August 2017 and learned that all Mellow Mushrooms had changed their menus "two days ago." I asked my server if the vegan menu was still available. He had to dig one up, but he brought it my table and went down the list of options, confirming that even though the new Mellow Mushroom menu had removed some ingredients, all of the vegan options could still be made; I was really impressed with the server's friendliness and knowledge of the menu/veganism.

I ordered a half Tofu Hoagie without mayo and without Daiya (I don't care for it). It was prepared correctly and was delicious. Even though it was a half sandwich, the portion size was very generous and the sandwich was overflowing with marinated cubes of tofu. The grilled peppers, mushrooms, and onions were cooked perfectly, though were a bit greasy. I had previously ordered this with the Daiya and was concerned that ordering it without would make the sandwich too dry, but that wasn't the case.

The only complaint I had about the experience was that I was seated next to a table of young children who would not sit still despite their mothers' pleas. That's hardly the restaurant's fault, but is something a potential customer should consider. This *is* a family restaurant. This may appeal to some more than others. Either way, the combination of the children and the ambient music made it hard to hear.

Pros: Knowledgeable Staff, Tasty Food

Cons: Noisy

Could be better. - Edit

Decor is awesome and inviting but waitstaff isn't always the best. We had the hummus which was absolutely delicious but we're not impressed with the vegan pizza. It's obvious that this isn't a vegan restaraunt. They piled so much Daiya mozzarella on our pizza, we could barely get through one slice. The waitress didn't even offer to remove it from our tab. We may be back for drinks and apps but definitely not their pizza.

Pros: Awesome environment, Great appetizers.

Cons: Waitstaff isn't attentive, Vegan boxed Pizza is better.

Vegan Friendly - Edit

It's alright for a chain restaurant. I love how they have a separate menu for vegans and love the tofu hoagie. It's a bit small if you're hungry. I bring my own mayonnaise when I know I'm going to order a sandwich.

Not Vegan Crust.....has bone char sugar - Edit

Mellow Mushroom will not be honest with people and tell them that their is Dominos sugar (Bone char) in the crust. So therefore, this is neither Vegan or Vegetarian! I stopped going!

Cons: Dishonest

good pizza - Edit

This chain is easily one of the best vegan pizzas out there. Get food for pick up if you're eating mid to late fri-sun because it can get crowded since families like to go there. You can make any pizza and you can make any pizza vegan. Also calzones and this one sub that I think is supposed to be a philly.

vegan pizza! - Edit

You can make most pizzas vegan here (vegan cheese). The Thai pizza with curry tofu is highly recommended.
