National Pizza Chain and Watering Hole with Vegan Cheese and Vegan Substitute toppings!

Mellow Mushroom has recently started offering Daiya Vegan Cheese substitute on their pizzas. Other Vegan substitutes include tofu, tempeh, and avocado for pizza toppings and sandwiches. They serve appetizers, salads, calzones, hoagies, and VEGAN pizza!
(Note: Butter and Parmesan cheese are typically added to pizza crust after baking unless they're directed otherwise. And both the hoagie rolls and pita bread contain dairy.)

What really sets Mellow Mushroom apart from all the other pizza joints (according to innumerable Internet reviewers) is their famous Whole Wheat crust made with Spring Water. And Mellow Mushroom uses mostly Organic ingredients to boot!

Appetizers include:
>Garlic Bread
>Stuffed Portobello
>Spinach Artichoke Dip

Salads include:
>Greek (with red cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, kalamata olives, tomatoes, pepperoncini, banana peppers, and feta)
>Chopped (with iceberg and romaine, grape tomatoes, fresh basil, red onion, pine nuts, Kalamata olives, pepperoni, and house vinaigrette)
>Build-your-own (with your choices of lettuce, veggies, nuts, tempeh, tofu, bbq tofu, and dressing)

Hoagies (on French or wheat bread) include:
>Avocado (with lettuce, tomato, onion, sprouts, and lemon juice)
>Portobello (with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and sprouts)
>Tempeh (with grilled mushrooms, onions, green peppers, sprouts, and pesto mayo)
>Build-your-own with your choice of bread, lettuce, veggies, protein.

Pizzas include:
>Mega Veggie (with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, black olives, tomatoes, broccoli, banana peppers, artichoke hearts, and tofu)
>Kosmic Karma (with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, fresh tomatoes, and pesto)
>Magical Mystery Tour (pesto, button and portobello mushrooms, spinach, and jalapenos)
>Fun Guy (5 types of mushrooms, a mountain of cheese, and a base of grilled mushroom vinaigrette)
>Build-your-own (from a long list of choices including green olives, roasted red peppers, tempeh, tofu, and bbq tofu)

They also have a full bar and serve great micro brews you won't find anywhere else in town! Happy Hour is 3pm-6pm M-F and 10pm-2am M-F is reverse happy hour.

I like their pizza and Daiya vegan cheese option, but I know some people who aren't impressed or think they use too much cheese. However, the pizza is always really expensive; I end up being shocked by my bill even with a Groupon. They do have a great happy hour with half off all alcohol (with plenty of local craft beer options) and appetizers.

Make sure to specify your pizza to be made vegan as sometimes they would otherwise butter the crust.

A great place to take a mixed crowd! Ordered the house calzone, and just said "Make it vegan!". The server knew exactly what I meant, everyone's meals came out exactly right and she was incredibly friendly to boot. We all enjoyed our food, and the only thing keeping me from giving Mellow Mushroom a top rating is their prices...ouch! A little steep I'm afraid.
