So Long To Mountain Mike's Pizza in Lafayette

High rent has melted the cheese for the final time.

Mountain Mike's Pizza has closed its doors for the final time. Open since 2008, high rents and the closure of neighboring Chase Bank, with the subsequent changes to the lease arrangements, have signaled the end of the pizza parlor.

The business sponsored youth groups and sports teams, and owner Ben Mahoney said he will miss his many regular customers.

Did you try a pie from Mountain Mike's? Will you miss it?

Mike, Patxi's can afford to occasionally give away 10% of the nightly take because you can't get a pizza night for 4 there for much under $100! The market is never wrong, however. They do make a very good pizza. Mt. Mike's? Meh.

For those who miss Freddies (Including those of us that still drive by Pizza Antica and think of when Freddies was there), there are a couple of good substitutes. First, DiVino's in Pleasant Hill makes a thin crust that comes very close. Second, Amici's East Coast Pizzeria does a good job. Patxis does a nice job with their Chicago style pizza's, but their thin crust leaves a bit to be desired.

No place beats Zachary's in Rockridge.

Divino's is excellent, at least for the bay area which isn't exactly a bastion of great pizza. We've been going there for many years now. Not convenient if you live west, but close by for us.

Mountain Mikes in Moraga at 504 Center Ave is open and does fundraisers at 20% back! Its a short drive up moraga blvd and their buffet is one of if not the best in the Lamorinda area. I love mountain mikes and dont mind driving an extra 5 min to get it.
