Mellow Mushroom Sanford (Vegan Guide)

The vegan options at Mellow Mushroom are far out: vegan cheese, tofu, tempeh, you name it! Although Sanford has some truly great local pizza places, Mellow Mushroom has the greatest national footprint meaning that it may very well be the easiest place in America to get great vegan pizza. But the options don't just stop at pizza!

Read our vegan guide to eating at Mellow Mushroom below for the full list!
