I use to dine at mellow mushroom back in the 90s while living in Atlanta and even back then you could modify your pizza to get some vegan grub. Nice part now actual vegan items are part of the menu. This place is now all over the country which is great...especially when traveling and you need a familiar place to stop for food. I do not eat a lot of pizza but when I do, I come here. And if pizza isn’t what you want they have salads, apps and sandwiches to choose from as well.

Pros: Lots of options , Good pizza , Open late night

Awesome vegan pizza

This local is so awesome and vegan friendly they tell you up front what too watch out for and not to get. They use the “ follow your heart brand cheese “ which is so amazing melted on their pizzas!

Pros: Tons of veggies , Amazing vegan cheese, Amazing beer

Cons: Needs more vegan sandwich options

Amazing pizza

Their vegan pizza is really delicious but it’s a little pricey. I’ve gotten the veggie pizza before and for whatever reason it was kind of bland. I had to douse it up in hot sauce. But I recently tried just a plain cheese pizza and it was perfect.

Great Vegan Options!!

I got the "veg out" with the vegan/gluten free crust and with dayia cheese. It was delicious but the only thing I have to say is it took a long time for them to make it, and it can only come in a size medium. I was a little sad when they could only come in medium but still thought it was very tasty. A little on the pricey side with the dayia cheese, so I suggest to get it w/o the cheese to make it more affordable. Overall it was really good pizza on a Friday! :)

Pros: Tasty

Cons: Pricey , Long wait

Fun place, friendly staff & good vegan options

Great staff - very helpful, friendly, hard-working and knowledgeable. One of the managers is vegan, making it more likely that staff members will understand what vegans eat (and don't eat). MM has tasty and melty vegan cheese (daiya), which I love, and tofu and tempeh in the toppings menu. They have several salads that can be modified to suit vegans and a hummus platter for munching, if you're not in the mood for a big meal. Their pizza crust can be made without butter or Parmesan cheese on it, so remember to tell them that when you order. In addition, they have a good number of pizza toppings for individualized pizza pizzazz. :-)

Vegan cheese

I went there yesterday and they do have vegan cheese. In fact, the vegan cheese they use is Daiya. I'm not sure if they didn't have it when the previous reviewer went, but they do now!!!

The pizza itself is awesome!! Lots of veggie options, including bbq tofu and regular tofu. The calzones are really good too!! Will definitely come back.

Very good!

As a vegan, my main criticism would be that my options at Mellow would expand exponentially if they had vegan cheese. That aside, it's quite possible to get a delicious pizza without it, though the cornucopia of ingredients would be better held in place with some "glue!" However, good luck convincing your non-vegan friends to share a meatless AND cheeseless pizza with you. And a calzone without cheese is just sort of a massive lump of dough. There are also a few more single-serve options (sandwiches) that can easily be made vegan. I tend to avoid salads when I eat out just because they're usually boring (and sometimes the only choice), but with Mellow's wide range of veggies and proteins it's actually a viable option. If they added the vegan cheese, you could make just about anything on the menu vegan! In any case, a crowd-pleasing choice even when dining with non-veggies.

Pros: Lots of choices, Drinks

Cons: No vegan cheese
