Pita Cafe Restaurant Review: Downtown Birmingham shoppers and office workers flock to this affordable spot at lunchtime to savor falafel, hummus, spinach pie and tabbouleh. Vegetarians, especially, drop in for a quick bite and a raw juice cocktail. These options include smoothies made from tropical fruits --- think guava, mango or papaya --- as well as vegetables, such as celery or carrot. We recommend the shish tawook or chicken shwarma, with lentil soup or salad and a side of rice. But it's easy to fill up (happily) on a plate of baba ghanouj with pita bread and a fattoush salad, too. Those on a budget might want to order a sandwich, many of which are under $5.
