Great vegetarian food, good service - Edit

We had lunch at Pita Cafe last week and were nicely surprised by a new menu. It was great to see some new vegetarian choices for lunch and dinner while the old stand-bys, e.g., hummus, were still available. The service was also very responsive to our needs.

Pros: Indoor and Outdoor Dining, Vegan and vegetarian entrees

Cons: Birds

Yummy Vegan Mediterranean - Edit

For starters/ appetizers, there are several different flavors of hummus, Veggies Dolmas, Spanakopita (vegetarian, but not vegan due to the feta cheese), veggies and dip, Veggie platter, Baba Ghanoush, etc. If you enjoy pitas, they have a Veggie Pita (omit the taziki sauce to make it vegan), Grilled Veggie Pita, Hummus & Tabouli Pita, and of course Falafel Pita. There are also quite a few (7!!) veg*n salads (if you're vegan just remember to omit any cheeses and the taziki sauce; it contains dairy).
For bigger appetites they have platters. Veg*ns can choose from a Falafel platter or Dolma platter. Both come with your choice of 2 sides.


FALAFEL PLATTER:
My Falafel platter came with 6 perfectly seasoned and cooked falafel balls, what looked like a red and white onion mix, a whole piece of falafel bread, and it normally comes with taziki sauce but he allowed me to substitute for a small cup of hummus (which was perfect). For my 2 sides, I got rice and a greek salad without the cheese. Their rice is NOT made with animal broth or animal by-products, so it's completely vegan-friendly. It was very good and the portion was very generous. Same with the salad. No okie-doke, Baby Stewie portions here. It was a full container (I had a carry-out order) of luscious greenery.

DIPITIZER:
This is for my double-dippers! Raise your pitas in the air! Then dip 'em like you just don't care! Oh yeah!

You get to try different hummus flavors plus a third dipping dish, which the menu lists as taziki, but again, the worker (owner??) was SO nice and accommodating that he allowed me to sub for Baba Ghanoush (which IS vegan).
1-JALAPEÑO HUMMUS: Delicious AND it had some spicy kick to it (unlike some other places). Perfect!
2 - ROASTED RED PEPPER HUMMUS: yummy!
3 - HUMMUS: the original hummus flavor, but there is nothing ordinary about it. It's very fresh and each ingredient is distinctly present. Easily the BEST hummus that I have had in the Phoenix area.
4 - BABA GHANOUSH: it's a pureed eggplant dish, so it's good for dipping. The flavor was amazing! The eggplant tasted as if it was fresh off the grill and into the mixer. Some of the best Baba Ghanoush I've ever had. (Even if you typically don't like eggplant - like myself - I suggest trying it.)

They don't offer Tahini sauce as a side option, nor do they have french fries. Regardless, I still love this place. Excellent food, excellent customer service.

FYI - Gluten-free pita options available.

Pros: many vegan options, friendly and helpful staff
