These pizza-makers may be mellow, but they know how to bake. The chewy whole wheat pizza crust and wide-ranging toppings have earned Mellow the Charleston City Paper’s readers’ pick as Best Gourmet Pizza nine years straight. We’re talking andouille and artichokes, tempeh and tofu, along with the more traditional pepperoni and sausage. The same ingredients can be incorporated into dozens of salads, hoagies, and calzones, too. Each of the Lowcountry locations has its own unique look. Downtown, there’s a rooftop patio complete with a polychromatic mural of fireworks and hot air balloons. In Mt. P, hippies, families, and random pizza-lovers comfortably come together in a bright, psychedelic dining room. The Avondale location occupies a converted movie theater, and its interior is the most dramatic of all: cavernous and hangar-like, with arching red booths and walls painted in black-and-white swirls. The deep offering of specialty beers has made all three Mellows a brew-lovers haven, and the northern-most branch is home to the annual Mt. Pleasant Beer Festival. —Robert Moss, Dish (Winter 2013)
