Yep, disappointing.  The are great at marking what is vegan on their labels as you move through the line, but there is no sign for the pitas at the beginning.  It is clear from their nutritional pamphlet/pdf that the pitas (white or wheat) are not vegan.  I just happened to notice this several months ago (after I had eaten a few of the pitas in prior visits) as I was looking for caloric info on some of the items available.  I hate that feeling of finding out too late!! 
 At least they have a lot of options that are for the most part clearly marked and they differentiate between vegetarian and vegan. Lots of hope for the ingredient change!  I will email a polite encouragement.

Very upsetting, because no one at the restaurant informed me, even though I alway compliment them on all the vegan options they have. I understand that everyone doesn't know what whey is and that most employees don't learn the ingredients of all the foods in the restaurant. It's up to us to let them know and to ask them to please make it plant based.

They told me that they are changing the ingredients later this week, but they didn't know yet what the new ingredients were going to be. This is a great time to call the company and politely ask them to dump the whey and make the whole wheat pita, plant-based. It's so easy to do and then vegans can eat it, too!
