Great service, good vegan pizza

We were looking for a place in Saugatuck that was a open on an off season Friday night that had vegan options. Mitten Brewing was what Happy Cow turned up.

Almost every pizza on the menu could be veganized as they have all types of faux vegan meats and cheese .

The pizza crust was amazing . Pizza sauce was good. Vegan cheese was ok (but I’m not a big store bought vegan cheese person). The vegan sausage was really good. The service was at a high level and unexpected for a casual pizza place .

My Omni husband a non-vegan meat pizza and he liked it.

We both only ate half our pizza . Mine tasted even better the next day griddled with some olive oil.

Yay for pizza!

We had a good time at the Mitten. Got the BBQ pizza and I liked it and so did my non-veg companions. What we really liked was that the super friendliness of the staff.

Pros: Options to veganize most pizzas, Staff

The pizza is lit!

We ordered the BBQ Hawaiian pizza and subbed the vegan chicken and bacon. The cheese was melted perfectly and I was in heaven.

My kid ordered the cheese pizza and that was also amazing!

Pros: Vegan pizza toppings , Cheese was melted

Pizza is amazing!

They have so many vegan pizza options and their pizza is SOOO GOOD. it is the real deal. Crispy, chewy crust and such good toppings. I love elaborate pizza, and you can get that here, but the margherita pizza is honestly my favorite one. They do it so well. Ample outdoor seating, super central downtown. I am always looking forward to coming back here.

Pros: So many vegan pizza options, Super good crust, Outdoor dining

Good enough

Gets the job done but wouldn’t seek this pizza out particularly. They can add vegan cheese and other vegan toppings. Nothing special but totally sufficient.

No more options

Very depressing. Yes, there are vegan pizza options, but that’s it. Hub and I went on 7/21, and it was a bummer.

Pizza options and soft pretzel!

I was so excited to have an all vegan Margherita pizza, my personal favorite! Their menu is quite limited but most of their items are vegan or can be made vegan. Enjoyed the patio seating on a beautiful evening.

So so

They were out of vegan cheese when I went, July 2022. Ordered the Aloha BBQ pizza, and the vegan chicken was really bland and didn't really seem baked at all. Without the cheese it was just meh. But there aren't great vegan options in Saugatuck so even a half-hearted effort gets a participation trophy.

Pros: Good vegan toppings in theory, Good selection of local beers, Carryout available

Cons: Out of vegan cheese, Really busy at times if you're dining in, Closed Mon-Wed in Saugatuck

Great pizza

Really good vegan pizza - they don't skimp on the cheeze. The big pretzel was also delicious, and they even have vegan ranch. Would probably be fun to eat there not in a pandemic.

So glad we went! Vegan Mediterranean Pizza and the Vegan Calzone (Stromboli) were amazing. Best vegan pizza we ever had. Together with their Mango beer which was also great. Check it out

Pros: Except one all dishes can be made vegan, Many toppings to choose from if building your own, Great staff

Cons: Some vegan toppings were sold out

All of the vegan meat substitutes!

The impossible burger on a pretzel bun was really good. Cooked perfectly, still nice and juicy. The salami sandwich vegan style was excellent- vegan chorizo, salami, and pepperoni! A little spicy. Loved that we had this option!

Pros: Vegan meats , Cute restaurant, Outdoor seating

This place is AMAZING!!

They can pretty much make every dish on the menu vegan AND gluten free. Vegan meats, sauces, cheeses, salad dessings, V/GF bread and pizza crust. Literally dozens of menu items are fair game. In my 23 years being vegan, I’ve never seen anything like it in an omnivorous restaurant. Eat here now!!

We had an amazing selection of vegan pizzas. We did the vegan flight of 6 specialty pizzas, all vegan. Margarita, Mediterranean, deluxe, Hawaiian, field of green and pesto chikun. Really impressed that pretty much every pizza had a vegan option.

Pros: Tons of vegan options , Very knowledgeable about vegan options

Love this place!!!

The Mitten is fully accommodating for vegan and vegetarian. I can’t recommend this place enough. My boyfriend is vegan and I am vegetarian and it’s a wonderful place to visit because they have so many options for vegan pizza flights. Great atmosphere too.

Best in Saugatuck/Douglas area!

There’s not a lot of vegan food in this area, so it’s great to see a menu with extensive offerings. Even more, the food is really excellent, whereas there are a lot of places nearby that have a sad veggie burger that’s made poorly and served lukewarm. Even if this area didn’t set an already low bar for vegan food, The Mitten would not disappoint. Food is fresh and tasty, beers are good, backyard seating is lovely but inside is also cute. Pretty much the only game in town, but that doesn’t stop it from having a strong game.

One drawback was the salad was a little sad, but what does one really expect at a brew pub?

great beer, pizza and atmosphere!

I would have given 5 stars but it wont let me since its not a fully vegetarian restaurant. HOWEVER, the food and the vibe are off the charts. We got the Field of Greens pizza with extra peppedew peppers and the Deluxe as a vegan pizza. Both were delicious. We sat ouside, as the music was too loud inside, although I liked the oldies selections. Grassy ouside with cafe tables and picnic tables scattered about. So beautiful at night with the lighting!

Pros: lots of vegan and vegetarian options

Cons: good prices and great beer selections
