In 1977, military scientists invented pita pockets as a means of preventing humans from devouring pants pockets. Curb your pants-eating proclivities with today's Groupon. For $5, you'll get $10 worth of stuffable pita pockets and drinks at The Pita Pit in Center City.
Jump-start your morning with a breakfast pita, such as the Morning Glory ($5.49), comprised of avocado, scrambled eggs, sautéed tomatoes, home fries, grilled green peppers and onions, and your choice of cheese and zesty sauces. Don't feel ashamed if your morning happens to be what other people call the afternoon, since breakfast pitas are served all day.
If it's lunch or dinner that you prefer, you can stay traditional with a gyro ($6.25), or unhinge your jaw and try the Dagwood club ($6.99) with turkey, ham, and roast beef or the Chicken Crave ($6.75) with grilled chicken and ham. Vegetarians can also find delicious items on the menu, such as the falafel ($6.25) or hummus ($5.29) pitas. If your nonconformist stomach refuses to be satiated by any of the menu items, build your own pita and choose from a potpourri of stuffings, including pickles, mushrooms, jalapenos, pineapple, croutons, tzatziki, barbecue sauce, or ranch dressing.
Wash your pockets down with a scrumptious smoothie. Play it simple with the Banana Very Berry, a blend of vanilla frozen yogurt, orange juice, bananas, and strawberries, or order the more intricate Purple Convertible, which blends vanilla frozen yogurt, pineapple, pineapple juice, bananas, blueberries, and strawberries, for a taste as rich and complex as the works of Lyubov Popova. All smoothies cost $4.49.
The Pita Pit is open until 10 p.m. every day of the week, making it a perfect pit stop after an uninspired day at the office or a weekend of alligator farming on the Schuylkill.

- Big ups to the chipotle sauce and the falafel they have. The chicken, falafel, and veggie steak always make for a good base especially for Vegetarians. Oh, and I almost forgot about the smoothies - which are equally tasty and come in any number of combinations. – Raul rivas, Citysearch
- My boyfriend is a vegetarian and there was a big selection for him to choose from. The veggies are fresh and delicious and cooked on a separate grill. They have salads, smoothies, and even pitas for breakfast. – Green G., Insider Pages
