There is a bilingual menu signboard in front of the establishment, and there is usually a server genially asking you to come in and take a look. The decor of the two-level establishment is spartan and has a clean fast-food look to it, with glass walls and casually spaced tables. The service is prompt and efficient for dine in or take away.
The menu at Quick Pitta is not extensive, but there are enough choices for an informal meal or snack. The special is a massive combination plate of various grilled meats served on a large round wooden plate with one pita bread, fries, and a smattering of vegetables and cucumber sauce. This hearty meal has a lot of meat and constitutes a lot of eating (though another pita or two would have been appreciated), but it is not a bad deal for about twelve euro. Smaller gyros plates are about five euro, but the serving is not nearly as large as the special plate. For a light snack to go, you can get a tasty gyros sandwich in a pita, freshly made and not too greasy. It is much tastier than the typical gyros served in an American joint. There is even a Greek salad on the menu for vegetarians.
Most of the daytime clientele is tourists (probably lured by one of their ads), but in the evening there are a few more locals who find the quiet no-frills atmosphere inviting. Small groups can chat away at leisure, while singles read books without feeling out of place.
