They have vegan appetizers and a vegetarian section on their menu:  Hummus, Baba Ganouj, Dolmeh, Falafel.  The appetizer platter is vegan except for the dip, which they can leave off.  Lentil Soup (they assured me it had no meat products in it)  Veggie Patty: combination of cauliflower, potato, parsely, flour and spices ground into a patty.  Served with basmati rice and skewered bell peppers, onions and tomatoes. Eden’s vegetarian dish: Veggie patties, falafel, dolmeh served on basmati rice with skewered bell peppers, onions and tomatoes.  Dolmeh: Stuffed grape leaves filled with rice, chopped onions, dill weed, olive oil, mint and spices.  It is served with yogurt dip, but can be ordered without.  The only lunch/pita they have is a Falafel Sandwich: Crispy fried chick peas and spices in pita with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and tahini sauce.  They assured me there was no yogurt in the tahini (didn’t taste like it had any).

The Pita Pit
120 E. University suite C
Tempe, AZ  85281
They have 7 pita wraps listed under “Vegetarian”.  The sandwiches are made “Subway”-style where you pick out your toppings while they make it in front of you.  You can have them microwave the falafel so it is not cooked on the same grill as the meat.  They are across University from ASU and are open really late (until 2 or 3am.)  Visit their website at

4747 E Bell Rd
Phoenix, AZ  85032
They have a lot of vegan food.  The two vegetarian plates do come with spinach pie.  I have not ordered those to find out if they can be left off.  They have good falafel and baba ganouj, they have a hummus pita, and more.  They mark everything on their menu that is vegetarian, but you do have to look out for items with cheese.  They are very accommodating!
