Reviews & Comments
Firstly, I'd like to say that out of all the Mediterranean
restaurants all over Birmingham, this one tasted and felt
the most authentic. The food was awesome, and the family
running it was extremely friendly and approachable. I had
a gyro plate which was a pretty large serving and tasted
amazing. My friend had a gyro sandwich with fries which
looked equally as good if not maybe even better. The
hummus was also great. The owners were extremely
friendly and joked around while maintaining a smile the
whole time. The music kind of sucked though. TVs were a
little loud too. When the place got busy, they seemed to be
a bit shorthanded, but that didn't affect us. Overall a
pretty good experience, but better to catch them outside
of the lunch rush.
I ate here with a friend and loved it. I was craving the gyro
the next week so took my 16 and 12 year old children with
me. I was nervous that they wouldn't like it.....they
ordered the gyros too because I had raved about it. They
both cleaned their plate. We ordered both types of baklava
and both were delicious!
Great food and large portions for the really good price.
Best food in the area by far! I have tried almost everything
and it is wonderful. I love the way they season and prepare
the tilapia. Kibby is another favor-ite of mine. If you
haven't tried it, you should go.
Great Food and People
I just happened upon The Pita Cafe on day and needed a
quick bite. I ordered the lamb gyro. I have nev-er had such
tender, juicy meat . This was seasoned perfectly and was a
good amount of fixins' as well. It was served with a large
amount of seasoned fries. The best ten dollars i have spent
in quite awhile. But in addition to the food being so good
the company was even better. This is a great Greek family.
In just a few minutes of talking to the owner while waiting
for my order I was given the gift of renewed faith in the
goodness of people. I will surely go there again and take
friends. Thanks to Pita Cafe for a blessing.
I'm eating vegan right now and they have wonderful food.
Best hummus in town.
The food is great here, not over priced, and the owner is
Glad Vacation Is Over!!!
The restaurant was closed for a couple of weeks while the
owners enjoyed a much deserved vacation! Good Gravy I
am glad they are open again. Kafta! Tabouli! Gyro!
Chicken! Try it all. There is none other like it and I have
tried almost all of them. Do yourself a favor and visit this
lively and engaging family for the best Middle Eastern food.
Very tasty falafel sandwich with a side of tabouli. The
tahini based sauce sufficiently moistened the thin pita
bread and the crisp falafel while adding a layer of fancy
deliciousness to this simple lunch. Having a choice between
fries, rice or tabouli as a side makes a huge difference.
After having fresh, acidic tabouli for lunch you can step
into 90 F weather feeling fresh and far from greasy. Not my
usual stomping grounds and it had been a while since I
went. Today I had to drop of a car at Toyota and stopped
for lunch. This family owned gem made an instant return
onto my lunch list.
We ventured over to hoover hoping to eat at Tortuga's but
turns out they closed for Spring Break. Pita Cafe is located
next door so we decided to give it a shot. We got the gyro
sandwich and the gyro plate. The plates are pricier but
they come with so much food! Fruit, tabouli, tons of
tender lamb, generous sauce, pita bread, fruit. Definitely
worth it, and delicious!
I've only had one dish, but it's tasty
I longed for the Kafta Special when they closed in
Wildwood. I had no idea they had relocated to Hoover until
fairly recently. DELICIOUS! And they always have a great
health rating and are very friendly. Don't know if I can
recommend based on one dish, but from what I've had, you
cannot go wrong at this place. Also, the owners seem to be
very friendly. I caught a glimpse of the kitchen, too and
from what I could see, it is clean, neat and well organized.
Great Hummus Great Service!
I loved the home made hummus and the owner was
very amiable. I highly recommend this place.
Pita Cafe is a great, laid back family restaurant. We
have gotten to know the owners just by frequenting
the restaurant. Their chicken plate and hummus dip
are very good!
Great place! Great food and
Chicken special, Gyros, steak n sak, and burgers are
some of my favorites but everything is good. They
also have great homemade humus...
Best Gyro Plate I've Had
Tiny little mom and pop place.
I always get the Gyro plate with Tabooli.
Tabooli. Good stuff. Try it!
Gyro plate comes out with pita bread, rice, sauce, a
slice of orange/pineapple/cantalope.
The meat is tender and juicy. Not crispy brown,
although I occasionally like that style as well.

This is a small family run restaurant that is located
in the same strip mall as Tortugas. The owners are
friendly and provide personal service. The health
rating on the last visit was a perfect 100.
I have had the Gyro wrap and
Gyro plate and would highly
The Gyro meat is sliced into thin strips and is tender
and flavorful. I also recommend the Shrimp special.
The shrimp is seasoned and grilled with fresh
mushrooms and onions. The Tabouli salad is very
yummy. It consist of fresh curly parsley, tomatoes,
and onions. It is chopped and mixed with a a little
First time eating at the Pita Cafe
The hummus was some of the best I've ever eaten
and the tabooli and grilled shrimp and veggies were
perfectly seasoned. The hospitality was great and
the atmosphere was much warmer than the strip
mall exterior would lead you to expect. Definitely
will go back.
I've been going to The Pita Cafe
for almost 10 years!
The homos dip is the very very best I have ever had.
My friend even had them cater some for her
wedding! 4 stars because the service is usually a
little slow. Most of the time its just the owner
serving you. He is so personable! I love all the
Mediterranean fare, tilapia pita wraps, tabouli, and
the baklava is authentic rating and fresh. It will
continue to be one of my staple eateries in Hoover.
Delicious. Clean. Tastes
Honestly, before, I was not a huge fan of
Mediterranean food, but I really like this place!
Service is great and they seem to care about
keeping their customers happy. I've never been
disappointed. Hint: Check out the Kafta special.
Yummy! And the Hummus is perfect!
