When I told them I was GF they washed their hands and changed gloves. I did Build a Bowl and it was great every option had all possible allergens listed making the right choices easy. The food was delicious!

Almost everything on the menu is gluten free with the exception of anything Pita related

Always delicious! It’s kind of like chipotle in that you go through the line and add whatever you want to your bowl/salad

**High cross contamination risk. I have eaten here only a couple of times, but I did pickup each time. Yesterday I decided to go inside and get my food through the regular line. I was with my coworkers who really wanted to eat there or I would have left after what I saw. I watched as the ladies working the line scooped things directly onto pitas, touching them with the spoon multiple times. Also, as the pitas moved down the line, the edge rolled over the top of the food containers that were right next to the board. This would prob be ok for people who are strictly gluten sensitive, but for anyone with Celiac, it could pose a huge issue. I asked the first girl to change her gloves and please grab me a different bowl (she had already grabbed one before I was able to ask her to change the gloves). She gave me attitude and was not happy about me asking her to change them. Everyone one else also changed their gloves for me as I went through the line, but I couldn’t stop noticing many points of potential cross contamination. Will not eat there again for sure.

This place isn't gluten free. Had the basmati rice, grilled chicken, pickled onions and Greek vinegrette. Mixed it together and tested it with the nima sensor and came back GLUTEN. I'd be very weary of this place.

Cava is like a (more delicious) version of Chipolte but with Greek type food. You can choose a bowl or build your own. Everything is GF except the falafel and pita. The food was flavorful and healthy feeling. The staff changed gloves when I asked. I'll be back.

Cava is so great with gluten free! The majority of their menu is gf and they have gluten listed on all the ingredients. When I order online I just call and alert them of my allergy and they always assure me that they will change their gloves and make it right away to be sure it is safe. I’ve never gotten sick from here and they always make me feel very confident that my meal is safe!
