Yummy Vegetarian!

This is a must stop even if you aren't a vegetarian. The food is fresh, the selections and plentiful and dining outdoors is a bonus. My husband who is on a no fat diet found it accommodating as so often vegetables are grilled or stir fried in oil. There were items meeting his diet requirements. We... read more

Love the food, everything on the menu is of interest, so never a time when there isn't something that I want. The soups are great, the salads and the variety of salads, and the size of the portions are big, so splitting with others is a fun way to try a number of foods without a full commitment. I love...

My husband and I travel a lot and I just want to say "this is one of the most creative, artistic, healthy, food we ever had." The place has a cool staff, outdoor patio, cushions for the chairs, plants, music, free water to drink. It shows the owners of this restaurant care about everyone. A community atmosphere. Parking on street... More

We travel extensively and, yet, continue to call Hip the best vegan food we have had. The produce is so fresh and alive, the chai with coconut creamer is a must, and the quaint location make this spot a must-do for anyone traveling to Ojai.

I love pretty much the whole menu at Hip Vegan. The salads are scrumptious, the "burger" is fantastic. I had to eat here a few times to really appreciate it. The only reason this isn't getting a five star rating is the prices. I think it is priced slightly higher than it needs to be. But kudos to the chef... More

We noticed that this is Ojai's #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor. Friends wanted to try it for the first time, so we went with them. We are not vegans, but we studied the reviews and menu and figured it would be fine. The atmosphere of the restaurant isn't much. I ordered the burger with the extra carmelized onions. The extra...

If I could eat this food twice a day for the rest of my life I would not mind it at all! This food was amazing. Fresh, tasty, creative and not too expensive. The 3 scoop salad was amazing. My only complaint? I wish they didn't close at 5pm! lol Woulda been great to have dinner there, as the options... More

Don't let the entry stop you as you walk through the gate and are perhaps a little confused as to where Hip, the restaurant, actually is, keep walking to the back and you'll find the door. When you get to the door and you still are not sure of what you are getting into just keep going and open the... More

It was a great atmosphere for an artsy little haven. :) This is such an incredible little jewel tucked away in the desert. The food was scrumptious. We loved it.
