This first photo isn't mine...it's from the Mellow Mushroom Website. But the other photos I took while on vacation. This is the Mellow Mushroom location in Pigeon Forge, TN, and we stopped by while on vacation last week. I think they had 3 locations in the area...this one, one in Gatlinburg next to Ole Smoky Moonshine, and one at The Island in Pigeon Forge, too!
First...I have to talk about the decor in this place. It's so cool! There are lights, mushrooms, tye dye stuff, hippie stuff - pretty much everywhere.
These are some of the lighted tree decorations they had in the middle of our section. I took some pics of the walls but they didn't turn out that great. There was a HUGE painted wall that went from one end of the booth seating area to the other that was hippie and groovy but still a tribute to Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains.
There was plenty of parking outside, a lot of seating inside, a bunch of eye candy to look at inside and out and we haven't even talked about the food yet!
We will get to that in a moment...but first...I just had to show you another shot of this 'fireplace' of Lava Lamps...
I'm pretty sure that The Mellow Mushroom has 3 locations in the area of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. At least that is how many I saw while we were out and about. This one was in Pigeon Forge - stand alone. There is another one in Pigeon Forge within The Island that I wrote about on my Travel Blog...then there is another one over by Ole Smoky Moonshine in Gatlinburg.
But...Mellow Mushroom's InstaGram 'liked' them so that's cool. It was actually really neat because a lot of the pics I took and put on InstaGram I had the official place 'like' my photos!
I, however, found out that they do vegan pizzas! YAY! They use Daiya Cheese! They make their own vegan and gluten free crust from ancient grains. I'm not Gluten Free but I enjoy eating Gluten Free foods from time to time. There were other vegan options on the menu but I didn't really want to think about it and wanted to take some of the pizza back to the Cabin for later so this is what I went with.
The pizza - overall - was quite good. I'm glad I was able to get it. Very happy they offer it! I do like the Vegan Pizza at Pizza Plant in Williamsville (Buffalo, NY, area) better, tho. If you are veg - where is your favorite vegan pizza located? Which eating establishment outside of the home, that is!?
