Peer up at the menu, and jump-start your morning with a breakfast pita, such as the Morning Glory ($5.75), composed of avocado, eggs, tomatoes, grilled green peppers, 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 ($6.50), or unhinge your jaw and try the Dagwood ($6.95), with turkey, ham, and roast beef, or the Chicken Crave ($6.65), with chicken and ham. Vegetarians can also find delicious items on the menu, such as the falafel ($5.95) or hummus ($5.75) 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, jalapeños, pineapple, tzatziki, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, and the wishes of lonely security guards.
