This location and the broad street location both have great service and food. We came here a few times for breakfast lunch and dinner. (note only the broad street location serves breakfast. Our first time, one of the people working there gave us free smoothies since it was the end of the night =). My favorites were the AM Philly,... More

I highly recommend stop by and try. Their Kale Lemonade was amazing!! I know it sounds strange, however, it's very refreshing! Try it! The customer service was fantastic!! They took the time to answer questions and make suggestions. I would definitely try again!

If my friend hadn't reassured me many times that the food I was eating was vegan, I wouldn't have believed it. I got the disco chick'n sandwich and it was actually almost concerning how much it tasted like the real thing. Definitely great for vegetarians/vegans who miss meat. As a student, it's a bit pricey, but worth a splurge once... More

We ate here 3 times on our trip to Philly. Chx run ranch is Ah-mazing but everything we tried was fabulous! Almost too real if you know what I mean. It's a fast/casual type of place.

I visited Philly on business on 3/21 and looked for a vegan spot to grab a salad. I ordered the udon noodle salad. What a fresh, delicious salad and the noodles were the best. I will carry out from HCV every time I hit Center City!

I can't tell you how much I love this place, it's the most delicious vegan "fast food" that I've ever had (and I search for it in every city I go to). My go to is the Hip City Ranch with a side of sweet potato fries. If I'm feeling extra good about myself I'll throw in a vegan milkshake... More

100% delicious! Limited seating, but very much worth the stop. The sweet potato fries are the best I've had. Classic Ziggy burger was juicy, and tasty with lettuce, tomato onion and a nice sauce. Bun was fresh and soft. Bistro Bella was flavorful, with olive tapenade and arugula on top. Deserts looked really good, but we were too full from... More

Delicious and creative vegan "fast food". Pretty pricey, but unfortunately that's the norm for vegan/vegetarian cuisine. HipCityVeg is definitely my go-to when I'm craving fast food. They have yummy sweets too! Try their cupcakes.
