quick and tasty - Edit

Got the portobello buffalo sandwich and absolutely loved it. Tempted to try to make it on my own because I don’t live close enough to eat here often!

Great vegan sandwiches! - Edit

So glad I went. Had the Philly steak sandwich and a cupcake. Both were awesome! Prices on the regular menu items were pretty reasonable. The cupcake was a little pricey (around $5, I think). I just wish I had been able to try more.

I love when I go somewhere all vegan and it's not just kale and quinoa.

Pros: Friendly, helpful staff

great quality - Edit

We went there several times.
Ok sometimes it’s very busy there. But from
price ratio quality is very good and worse to wait

Happy Steak - Edit

I loved the cheesesteak! I’ve always wanted to try one but haven’t found a veg friendly one before here. Loved the place!

Hearty cheesesteak - Edit

I ordered a cheesesteak to go as I was rushing off for a meeting. There weren’t that many people there, but the service took a bit longer than I expected. The cheesesteak was pretty good, but not as exceptional as other cheesesteaks and sandwiches I had in Philly. That said, I really appreciate having this option smack in the middle of downtown. I would definitely come back to try them again.

A great first trip to this restaurant while on a trip - Edit

I found the food excellent. It was good to see a variety of offerings, including salads for the nutritionally challenged traveler! Found the place similar to Native Foods in Chicago, though without quite as large and varied a menu. (Also, there was no table service offered, while Native Foods brings food to one's table.) The space (in a downtown high-rent zone) was a bit cramped. Also, servings perhaps a bit smaller. In particular, I ordered a soup from the specials board and a Mexican-type salad. Both very tasty. Lacking seating space inside; extra seating in a nearby entryway to the building. This seating area was very cold on an extremely cold day. Reasonably clean and usable bathroom a short walk away within the same building. I will be eager to come back some time to try more of the items on the menu.

Pros: healthiness, convenience of hours and location, tastiness and variety of offerings

Cons: lack of (climate-controlled) seating, portions slightly on the modest side, reasonable prices

AMAZING - Edit

This is on my top 10 restaurants since all I had was very tasty. We were a group of three and everyone was satisfied. I was really happy with my sandwich and fries. I'd love to come back again. Recommended!

Comfort Food Love - Edit

We ate here twice on our trip to Philly. A lot of the other vegan restaurants are small plates with hefty prices, so this filled us up.
Delicious.

Amazing! - Edit

I had to travel here to try out the breakfast options, and boy am I glad I did! The breakfast wrap was really delicious and the caesar salad was the best I've ever had. All vegan! I didn't think the pricing was too bad either compared to other vegan restaurants. I'll definitely be back for more!

So glad this exists!!! - Edit

I love that Philly has its own vegan fast food chain, and that it is doing so well. The food is amazing and this location has a nice area for additional seating in the back. The food is so good I bet people pick this over McDonalds when they're having a busy day.

A Vegan Wonderland - Edit

Yes this place is small but OMG is it amazing. The Crispy HipCity Ranch with buffalo sauce is literally to die for. I ate one at the shop and promptly ordered another to-go. My husband ordered the Ziggy Burger and the Caesar salad which was also delightful. Never had a Caesar salad with plantain chips in it but it really worked well. The milkshakes were also really good. Definitely recommend the seasonal strawberry shake. If you are travelling through Philly you have to stop at HipCity Veg! All their wrappings/containers are also compostable which is rad. Oh and did I mention this place is fast food style? I could not believe how quickly the food was made considering the quality. This is not some throw it together place. Each item is very well put together.

Pros: Amazing food served quickly , Sustainable packaging, Friendly staff

Cons: Small space, Expensive, Lots of foot traffic

fast and yummy - Edit

In Philadelphia for a couple of days and was able to grab breakfast here at 7 before my day began. Food was yummy and the staff kind. Food came out in about 5 min. Can't beat that! So nice to have a veggie restaurant that is open early!

Pros: hours

Very good - Edit

I tried a few different things here: the zippy burger, crispy hipcity ranch, disco chick'n, jerk chick'n salad and brownie. The sandwiches were all REALLY good. I found the tempeh bacon to be really flavourful and very good. The chick'n also has perfect consistency and overall the sandwiches were 5/5, great!! The brownie was good, but nothing particularly amazing, and cost almost $5 so that was definitely too pricey. The salad was not nice: the dressing was watery, the chick'n tasted like pepper, not jerk, and overall there was nothing very good about it.

Pros: Tempeh bacon!, Chick'n!!, All the sandwiches

Cons: jerk salad

Cute and yummy! - Edit

Cute, clean, modern little joint just down the block from Philly's Academy of Music. Burgers, sandwiches, "chik'n," salads, juices, desserts - standard fare but very well done. The Disco Chik'n sandwich was delicious. My son and husband really liked the L'il Golden Nugs and sweet potato fries. And the staff, in addition to being friendly, was also very accommodating, and whipped up a udon noodle dish with vegetables for my five year old. Oh, and the desserts - gingerbread cupcake and gingerbread cookies, zucchini loaf and chocolate chip cookie... really good. In the restaurant itself, there is only counter seating for three, but if you go through the big wooden back door, there is more seating in the marble lobby of the building. Nice find.
