I have had cava many times and never been sick! I make sure to ask them to wash their hands, change their gloves, and if that one person can handle my whole order. Definitely recommend!

For the time I went here, I let them know that I am gluten Free and “I will get sick” and they handled my order very well. What they make sure to do is have only one person handle your order and also change gloves (although all items have their own scoopers). Although the second time I went I think the staff just didn’t understand me so it was a slight let down. When in doibt ask for manager or the leader there so you can tell them.

Delicious, fast Mediterranean with Gluten, dairy, vegan, vegetarian and soy clearly indicated online. The guy who helped me was semi-familiar with Celiac and happy to do his best but wasn’t able to say much about cross-contamination. I took some enzymes with the meal and haven’t felt symptoms in the hour since eating.

I got a rice/greens bowl with chicken, lots of vegetables, and a few sauces-all GF. It wasn't marked on the food labels, but the website has a table showing all options with common allergen ingredients, which is helpful and reassuring. It was a lot of food and delicious (but not cheap). Great for takeout.

They will change their gloves if asked and almost all of the food is gluten free.

Gluten free listing online.

Have eaten here a number of times. Always a great experience!

I used to love Cava, but after watching them handle the pita, utensils etc, there is zero chance I would eat here.

I haven’t ever been to another location, but I’ve been wanting to try it. Nothing is labeled on the menu but they might have a physical allergen menu, I didn’t ask. I just used the allergen guide online and double checked with the staff and they were very confident and immediately changes gloves and washed hands. Very few items actually contain gluten but this a cafeteria-style restaurant (similar to chipotle) so there is risk of cross contamination. So far, so good though.
