I got a Mediterranean pizza. I saw the fresh dough being stretched out in front of me. It was pretty good, the crust had a bit too much flour though.

I loved this little cafe! It is definitely a "Hidden" treasure across the street from Target. I had the Gyro which was REALLY good. A lot of places make the lamb too spicy and with too much pepper...theirs was perfect. My friends purchased the cevapi sandwiches and that was just delicious! The hummus with the cevapi bread? Heaven! I only wish I could have tried the chocolate/hazelnut crepe...Lent... There is still a lot of work to be done with this little cafe. The food is great, and the service was extremely welcoming and friendly, but they do lack experience, so just as one person said about being waited on last? I can see it being an honest mistake. It's a very relaxed atmosphere, but it's a place that will take up a good 1.5-2 hrs. Enjoy it! Plus, if two cute girls walked in, what man wouldn't want to wait on them first? If you're in a hurry, call your order in, pick it up, pay for it, and eat it outside on the patio! Anyways, I didn't feel like I was being discriminated against due to my ethnicity. Just remember...we all ble ed green to them anyways... : ) GREAT FOOD!

Pros: Food, Prices, Intimate, Friendly Helpful Staff

Cons: If you're in a rush, don't eat here or call your order in; Need experienced wait staff to take the place to the next level

I love this place. It was such a gem to find it when I moved to Houston. I like smaller restaurants since I am from the northeast and this place offers such an intimate atmosphere. The food is great, having been to Sarajevo, the cevapi are as good as any place over there. They have off-menu items, you kind of have to know about it and ask them for it, but it is worth it. The roast lamb is outstanding (and yes, it is lamb and not a dog, I know because my family has roasted whole lambs before, so unlike the paranoid dude down there, I know what they look like). I was not too impressed by the stuffed peppers, but the rest of the menu is great.
I always thought the service was great and I have been there over 10 times in the last year. I found that the best time to go is between 4 pm and 6 pm. I love the fact that it is BYOB, it seriously cuts down on the cost of eating out.

I was visiting Houston for the first time on a business trip. when I go to a new town I like to go to restaurants off the beaten path. Well lucky me to stumble upon Cafe Pita. It's on a corner of an old strip mall. Having eaten Chinese and Japanese food for the past 3 days I was in the mood for something way different! When I first walked in I almost walked right out.....This place was so tiny and I felt as if I was interrupting someones family dinner. So out of awkwardness I immediately looked down and started to read the menu and was intrigued, so I decided to stick around. As I was waiting for my food I started to look around and saw the many framed reviews this tiny little establishment has racked up.
I ended up ordering the Gyro Sandwich and a delicious salad. The gyro meat was alright it was sliced paper thin and tasty, but the pita bread it rested on was how do you say????...."Off the chain!!" It was soft and warm and fresh....It could have used a little more tzatiki sauce, but nonetheless it was mmmm, but the star for me was that delicious salad. The vinaigrette was pure perfection. The 1/2 salad I ordered had shavings of some sort of prosciutto on top. The olives were huge and juicy and the feta was some of the creamiest feta cheese I have ever put in my mouth. I loved the salad so much I went back the next day for lunch.....wow it got crowded quick!! There was only one waitress there and every table in there was filled!!
Now that's a good sign of great food!!

OMG!! First of all I cannot believe that someone in their right mind would think that any restaurant in Houston would "rottiserie" a DOG!! you really have to be dumb to think that!

OK- now for my experience- I really liked Cafe Pita. The food is great, always fresh and staff is friendly. I would highly recomend it to everyone!

This place stinks if you are not a regular or from eastern Europe. No A/C, and two foreign-speaking tables were waited on before my friend and were (we were there seated and ready to order before those two tables came in). Horrible food and service.

The proverbial hole in the wall in all it's glory. Tucked away in a forgotten strip center but truly worth the drive. The restaurant has a decent decor and is very clean. Service can be spotty, especially at peak times but most of the staff is very nice and helpful.

But on to the food. First off I am American as they come but I have been to Bosnia and tried their food on many occasions. I've got to say Cafe Pita is equal or better than some of the more famous Bosnian spots. Their cevapi is just as good as any overseas as is the burek and the lepinja. The hummus is quite good as are their desserts. If you have any doubts about whether you will like it-have no worries, it's pretty simple food with great seasoning.

The cevapi is supremely seasoned meat (like gyros) with a sourdough type bread and they also have a hamburger type version that can be stuffed with cheese and mushrooms. Burek is a cylinder shaped dough stuffed with meat. Other similar dishes are stuffed with cheese or spinach.

The food can be a bit inconsistent at times and their popular specialty dishes like lamb can sell out on busy times like Saturday night. But the trip is truly worth it.

My family went, there were five of us on that night. We all ordered, it took a while and it was very busy. The hummus and stuff was great and all of our meals were good but they gave us substitutions for the regular sides. This would not have been as much of a problem if they had just asked us if we wanted the substitutions. My father-in-law is a fat a phobe and when they gave him fries instead of rice he freaked.

Very small restaurant, so avoid peak hours! Saturday night was a madhouse! They ran out of three of the house specials (there were 3 in our party). BYOB restaurant.

It's not a dog, it's a lamb uneducated animal. If you dont know the difference u should take some classes. This is a great place to eat, they make food fresh every day.

My friend and I went there for dinner on the suggestion of a hotel employee. It is one of her family favorites. It was fabulous!! We had a feta cheese appetizer that was served with the lepinja bread, drizzled with imported olive oil & spices, sliced tomatoes, olives and a red pepper spread. The Bosnian lemonade (with a hint of grapefruit) is great. I tried the fried anchovies and loved them! Everything was wonderful. I will be back very soon to try more of this magnificently prepared food! The waitress, owner and cook were all very personable and made great suggestions! Ask Omer to help with your choices if you can't decide!

I bought a scooter and i needed a breaker bar to fix it, to make a long story short i was behind cafe pita + yes off of westhimer and behind the restarant i was in the alley looking for a breaker bar to fix my scooter and i wish i was wrong but i saw with my friend as a witness (i also have pictures) a full grown dog in a pig cooker being cooked. The cook seen the flashes from inside the resturant and ran out telling me that this is private property and that i better leave. It was hooked up to an electric motor and like i say i have pictures, and video from my digital camera to prove this . If you have the stomach to see them email oneslimster@yahoo.c o m Maybe you can help me come up with an idea of what i should do. I have not ate there, I live a block away and i feel sorry for the people that have.

the food was delicious, the service personable and the prices more than reasonable. my friend and i asked the owner to choose our meal and we were delighted by his choice of girice, the deep fried anchovies, a dish neither of us would have chosen on our own. the fish were flavorful, crispy and the "speciality cocktail sauce" was a tasty, tangy compliment. next came the cabbage rolls. fresh and hot served with a generous sized wedge of lepinja bread, a chewy bread perfect for holding the weight of the sauce without losing its flavor. just when we thought we couldn't eat another thing a bosnian pizza appeared on our table. the thin, hand made crust immediately brought me back to the pizza of my childhood. the pizza was topped with halal beef sausage and smoked filet, mushrooms, and a smattering of chopped onions. it was greasy, savory and satisfying. the leftover pizza was devoured by my kids for breakfast the very next morning. for dessert we sampled the baklava and the sutlia..rice pudding with a sweet caramel sauce. my favorite! in the end, dinner for 2 set us back a mere 40$. i will most definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family and my kids and i will visit again soon.
