One of my all-time favorite vegan restaurants, stopped in for lunch and had the New York Reuben, fantastic. My daughter had a classic burger with avocado and loved it. Their salads and desserts are out of this world, for us it's worth the 45 minute drive.

'Hip' is a very cute vegan spot in Ojai. I am writing a review because, I want to be clear on what kind of Vegan place this is -- it is not a raw food restaurant. I was swayed by other reviews, but found out that it was not quite that. Rather, it is a cute little quiet cafe with... More

Stopped in early when they first opened looking for a vegetarian restaurant and had a hard time deciding what to eat! The menu is large and varied. I decided per the recommendation of the staff on the three Scoop Salad Yum! Seed pate, Almond Pate, and a final scoop of hummus. It was even a little too much for me... More

Some of the best food in Ojai in a lovely little out of the way spot. Sitting on the patio is a form of meditation. I have only had amazing, fresh, healthy food @ Hip. Don't miss it!!! And get the iced tea. It will change your life :)

This is awesome. This is a great place and has some great energy in the food they make. We had a fabulous time here... and they sure nourished the soul with their rolls :)

My wife and I stopped in after a wonderful couples massage at the nearby day spa. I had the Mexican bowl and a great red ale and my wife had the Indo wrap. Whereas I thought the taste and presentation were good, my wife found everything to be a little lackluster. Personally, I would give this place 5 stars but... More

So glad we got to eat here while visiting Ojai. I had the Indo wrap and my partner had an Asian style tofu burger. The side salad was fresh and delicious and the cilantro-lime dressing was excellent on it too. The lentil soup was also tasty. My wrap was bursting with one great flavor after the next, veggies and tempeh.... More

It was fun, the menu was creative and lots of choices. The featured meal, the Hip Wrap, was too spicy indicating that they didn't have the confidence they should have in the tasty veggies. The tofu sandwich was excellent and I consider myself a tofu guru. the staff is friendly and obviously very involved in the whole process. Although a... More

This restaurant is great. The food is so fresh and good. Had the salad sampler with the miso-ginger dressing...superb! Love the raw crackers with this. Nice patio. Clean and nice and the staff is so friendly but professional too! Love this place and we will be back!
