This location better for sitting down - Edit

I've been to both HipCityVeg locations and the food and menu are both the same. This one is much nicer to actually sit down and eat at. The location in Center City is great for food on the go but only has a few tables. There is so much seating at this location, which is kind-of nice.

Pros: Great food, Lots of seating

Cons: Not in center city

Great Sandwiches - Edit

Stopped here for a quick bite. I had the Crispy HipCity Ranch with buffalo and shared some sweet potato fries with sriracha ailoi. The sandwich was pretty big for me so I only ate half. The food was amazing! If you are in the city definitely stop here and grab something to eat. Service was great as well.

Favorite! - Edit

I go to HipCityVeg all the time, especially this location. There's way more seating in the university city location, and it's a nicer atmosphere. The foodies all delicious. The chickn ranch sandwich is definitely a favorite, as are the chickn nuggets. The ziggy burger is also amazing. If you go, definitely try one of their brownies! They're AMAZING. All of their beverages are really good too--the green lemonade is my favorite. It's a great place for a quick, delicious meal, and they deliver!

Pros: great food, good atmosphere, good service

nice - Edit

I've been to this chain in other locations before. I like what they offer and have always received good service. I ordered the Ziggy burger and a brownie. Both were good but the star of the show was the brownie. If you time things right, you can probably even skip paying the meter on the street.

Pros: friendly staff, variety, desserts

great food and awesome drinks! - Edit

Got the Philly cheesesteak and the buffalo chicken and fries and also got the carrot ginger lemonade. They were all awesome! Bread wasn't gluten free though but they offered to make my sandwich into a salad. Service was great too.

Groothy, Baby - Edit

Visiting from out of town, it was great to find high quality vegan eats. Went to both locations, and this one has much more seating space. Food was great at both places.
The green smoothie (groothie) is excellent and comes out of a machine like the icee machine at 7-11, so you don't have to wait. The green lemonade is a refreshing, light alternative, served over ice. It is lemonade with kale juice added.
The Zigger and breaded chick'n sandwiches with tasty sauces were excellent.
For dessert they were out of brownies, so we went with cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, and milkshakes. All very good.
