Stopped here for lunch a few days ago. Great overstuffed pita sandwiches in a basic casual setting. The service left a bit to be desired (we had to flag down our server and there was confusion as to which server was taking care of our table) but it was lunch so - whatever.

I had seafood scampi which had big pieces of lobster and other fresh fish, and my husband had grilled scallops which he enjoyed very much. It was hard to choose a dessert!

I'm not sure why it's so hard to find well-prepared, thoughtfully conceived food in MDI, especially since the locavore movement has permeated the state in so many other spots, but Eat-a-Pita is as close as we've found to food that's a pleasure to consume. There's nothing fancy here, but everything we ordered was good -- from salads to crab cakes... More

You won't see pita on the menu at night unless you take out food. Seems to be a health conscious menu. Pasta Florentine without cream, for example. Good appetizers and good bar drinks for those who like mixed drinks.

Suggested by a tour guide but we found this place just ok . Service was friendly but very slow ,plan on waiting if you go . The lobster bisque was fishy tasting and disappointing for being in Maine . The lobster Reuben was ok a little soggy .

My wife and I shared a crab cake entree, each with 1-1/2 delicious crab cakes that had very little filler, nicely done inside with a crispy crust. They were accompanied by a root vegetable puree of carrots, radishes, turnips, onions, and (most likely) cream. Also spears of asparagus. Preceding the entree was a crispy green salad and some yummy herbed... More

The staff was very helpful in making a selection of both a good regional beer and food to go with. The view of the harbor from the deck is the best in town.

We were going to the grocery store and we were passing this charming little restaurant on the street and we decided to go in and have breakfast. To start with we wanted everything on the menu, it just sounded so good. My husband had the eggs with pancakes and I had the huevos rancheros... ah and we added french bread... More

We had a great lunch here on our first day in town. Local relative warned us about slow service, and while quite slow, it wasn't a problem, as we had lots of time and had been warned. Sandwiches and salads were all delicious. Tried to go back for a 9:30 breakfast later in the week, and it was a nightmare.... More

Despite the incongruous name, this small cafe serves more than pita sandwiches. We wandered in with a group of friends (5 total) mid-morning on a weekday in August and were seated immediately. (Indoors, as it had just finished raining.) The brunch was excellent, down to the Maine blueberries in the pancakes. The service was friendly and prompt. Definitely will return... More
