Fresh Pita near Weehawken or Maplewood?


I'm making hummus for an event his weekend and would really love to have fresh wonderful pita or Syrian bread depending on where you are from. Any ideas of sources nearby? I am going to be near weehawken and also Maplewood. Any ideas?

  1. Odd location in Orange (looks industrial) and limited hours, but these guys have a great product:

    1. It might not qualify as 'near,' but Maplewood is a 20 minute drive from Patterson. Patterson is basically Little Syria.

      It's been at least 5 years since I got them, but the pitas at Fattal's were astounding. The house brand tahini is amazing as well. The pitas were so good, I couldn't eat local (Morristown) pitas any more- and haven't had one since.

      As with most bakeries, time of the day is most likely a factor, so you might call and see when they're baking. I also know that some bakeries like to skip bake days during the summer, so you might want to inquire about the specific day as well.
