This little downtown restaurant makes smoothies and pita pocket sandwiches-toasted or untoasted. You can choose which meat and vegetables go inside, and service is fast. Vegetarian options are available. The only downside on our visit was that feijoa berries weren't entirely blended in a smoothie.

It was a bit like a subway in a pita. The ingredients just tasted cheap and mass produced. The staff were friendly but not somewhere I would go again.
