A small Vegan restaurant. The sign may be easy to miss, but locals know it. Warning: may cause gas if not used to 100% Vegan food).

Don't let its low key location fool you...Hip is one of Ojai's best kept secret restaurants. I attempt to try something different every time I go because I've yet to have anything that wasn't delicious as well as super fresh and healthy. I especially love Barbara's Salad. My only criticism is service out of the kitchen is very slow, which... More

I ate there for first time today on a visit to Ojai. I kept passing the "Vegan" sign and finally looked at the website and the many great reviews. This is a casual little "hole in wall", with very nice outdoor seating and very simple indoor seating. It appeared clean and the restroom was clean. Good sign. I had the... More

This place is good. Not just for a vegan restaurant, it is good. We had Indian dal over rice and some spring rolls. I looked for a browning piece of lettuce but it did not exist. Everything was fresh and beautiful. It was like eating a crunchy rainbow with a side of dal. Honestly good food!

Fresh and healthy food that tastes great. Amazing creativity. Amazing flavour. I was staying with my friend in Ojai for almost a week and we ate here or got take-out from them 3 times. I started with salads (Barbara's and the Black Bean Bowl) and on the last day I got the Reuben (?!*&%#@?!!!!!). I wanted to extend my stay... More

We specifically drove via Ojai on our way back to LA to visit Hip Vegan which always sets one up for possible disappointment, but thankfully Hip Vegan was excellent. It's a tiny cafe with a cosy sun-filled courtyard (bring shades and a hat). I had the reubens sandwich (seitan) and it was bursting with flavour and proper hand-licking messiness. Thumbs... More

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 spent lunch chatting with...

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.
