Mellow Mushroom Bakers will open in the Shoppes of Avondale in Jacksonville, Fla., on Feb. 10 at 3611 St. John's Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida.
According to a news release, the new location is owned by John Valentino.
"This is an ideal setting for our guests — families who enjoy a fun environment and unique experience, all while enjoying great food, shopping and entertainment," he said.
This location features three entries, jazz-inspired art, a full-sized 1940s open air LaFrance fire truck with a private party booth, and a custom-built 3-dimensional pin toy on the wall where customers can leave their impressions.
The full-service bar features more than 60 craft beers and an extensive wine list, and pays homage to the midcentury gas station which once sat on the same site.
The third portion of the restaurant anchors the intersection and provides an open air patio atmosphere, which can be used for private parties and local bands.
