When the Swamp failed to deliver breakfast walked next door and thankfully so found the Pita Pit and saved the day. Wife and I both had a breakfast pita and were fully satisfied with customer service, food quality, and cost. Thanks for making the final game of the year a success!

If you go to midtown this should be the spot to eat before that crazy night of drinking. Give your self some good healthy food before you let the toxins flow
