“Hot as Satans Waiting Room but the Sammie was worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We showed up right before the Dinner Rush. This was our first time here so we were not sure what to expect. We wanted to have a nice dinner and were dissappointed when we walked in and saw how small it was. We had to wait for a small table to open up so we could sit down to eat at a tiny table. We also were agast that there was no AC it was 100 degrees that day. So we ate fast and were uncomfortable the whole time. That being said the food was very good. I had the cheesesteak and it was delish and lasted me 2 meals. My dining partners had the Ranch Chikin Sandwich and the sweet potato fries and they both enjoyed it. I would come back but only for take out.

“Friendly staff, tasty quick food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Hip City Veg is great place to pick up a tasty, quick lunch or dinner in Center City. We arrived just before the dinner rush and by the signs of how busy it was, it's already gaining a reputation with healthy Philadelphians. The server (Emily) was friendly and welcoming and we received our food really quickly. We had the Udon noodle salad, sweet potato fries and the fajita wrap. The wrap was excellent and the sweet potato fries were delicious and a good sized portion for two people. The udon noodle salad was a bit disappointing as it was quite peppery and the main salad leaf used was arugula, so it was a bit bitter. No reason for that to put you off though. Not the place for a sit down room as it's a small restaurant with only a few tables but would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a quick, tasty meal that will leave you full but not feeling stuffed.

“Awesome food, lemonade and brownies”

The food, service, and decor is awesome. Vegan sandwiches are delicious. They pay attention to detail. They have lots of menu options.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This was our first time at Hip City Veg and it won't be the last! I had the Chopped Med Salad and sweet potato fries and both were excellent. My husband who is not a vegetarian had the fajita wrap and honestly thought he was eating chicken! We also had the lemonade and iced tea which were both very refreshing as it was an extremely warm evening. The only downside is that there is no restroom.
