Great chain for gluten/dairy/soy/corn free diet. Chicken, lamb and meatballs are GF, as are most toppings and sauces. Fountain drinks are great too.

Nearly all of the menu is naturally gluten-free! Employee was washing hands and changing gloves before I even finished saying “gluten”. Spatulas used on pita are discarded after. Food was great!

Hello CAVA! I finally have a lunch spot in Athens! It is one of the build a bowl/wrap places like a Greek Chipotle. There is a menu online that details ingredients and an easily read allergen chart. The item tags on the barrier window indicates GF, vegan, etc. The selection is good. Fresh and flavorful. I feel like Oprah giving away free stuff right now = very happy! The first server on the line today was a bit inept (she was giving me white rice whether I wanted it or not. I didn’t. She won that round), but another server heard me when I said I had allergens to avoid and need recommendations. She seemed knowledgeable and so far I’m not sick. Yay! I had spicy lamb meatballs and spicy chicken on rice an arugula. Delicious! The GF meatballs were a treat. I didn’t ask but I feel confident the servers would have glove changed if I needed it. Everyone eat here so we can keep this place open.
