Not safe. The salads are served with gloves that handle wheat. The spreads/dips have knives in them that are used to spread on pita. I ask the server to change gloves and serve me from a fresh bag of lettuce. I no longer get the dips (eg hummus) due to the cross-contamination. Despite these precautions, my dishes have tested positive for gluten (Nima sensor) on my last 3 visits. I give up.

Informed the employee of a “severe gluten allergy” and asked him to change gloves and he took care of my whole order down the line. Cava’s allergen labeling on their website is very helpful to look at what’s gluten (and dairy) free. Delicious, fast, and reasonably priced meal. I’ll go back again but only order in person to watch that there is no blatant cross contamination

The waitress was knowledgeable and took extra steps to make sure that the food was GF. There weren't a lot of options and the servings are small so I left a bit hungry but the chicken that I got was good

When I told server I have celiac she immediately removed gloves, washed her hands, out on new gloves, retrieved my greens from an unopened container and personally put on all my toppings. Even though the only gluten item is the pita all it takes is touching pita and then greens. I was very impressed that she knew what to do even before I asked. Plus the food is fab!
