New Mellow Mushroom taking shape in downtown Ocala

The new Mellow Mushroom in downtown Ocala is taking shape as crews make brisk progress towards its completion.

The multi-story building that will house the pizza restaurant will feature an additional restaurant and a rooftop bar. Crews have erected the second story of the new building, which replaces the previous building that was demolished. Its former tenant, Brothers’ Keeper Thrift Store, moved its location to just outside of downtown Ocala.

Mellow Mushroom produces specialty pizzas that feature a variety of classic and modern toppings. In addition to pizza, the restaurant offers burgers, sandwiches, salads and a collection of different appetizers. 

Mellow Mushroom currently operates multiple locations in central Florida, including restaurants in Sanford, Winter Park, Mount Dora, and Orlando, among other cities.

The project is one of multiple ongoing renovations across downtown Ocala that are progressing at a rapid pace. 

Cantina Tex Mex and Tequila Restaurant began exterior renovations on its new location earlier this month. 

Mutiny, a new pirate-themed bar next to sister bar Tipsy Skipper, is nearly finished with renovations on its Ocala location. 

Symmetry Cafe and Soleil Confections continue work on their cafe, which hopes to open its doors this fall at the former location of Sovereigns and Scoundrels Glass Emporium.
