I have been to other Cavas with no issues. Usually when you specify of an allergen a staff will go over what to avoid and designated one person to make your bowl. This place each person down the line, thankfully, most things served was with a spoon until end of the line last person used a gloved hand and grabbed something, I had to ask to change gloves, then asked if I wanted this and grabbed again. I kept saying no. Finally another staff had to explained in another language. Thankfully I didn't get sick for what I got so gave them some consideration.

I eat here all the time! Great choices, yummy food, and everything are labeled. Unfortunately, the falafel is not gluten-free, but all the other main protein options are. I stay away from lentils due to the possible contamination risk that lentils have.

They have a fun mix of drinks. You can ask for a glove change.

My go to is meatballs with white rice, the supergreens blend, hummus, corn, tomatoes, onions, pickled cabbage, avocado, and the lemon tahini.

Great place to stop for a safe GF meal. I doubt they are perfect but appears to be better than avg on cross contamination. Everything is labeled GF on the menu and on the counters they serve from.

I love coming to Cava!! They make sure to change their gloves and get new bowls when I mention Celiac and almost everything is gluten free (just not the pita or falafels). They also gave me my bowl for free once!!!

I came here when I was visiting Austin and got a bowl that was delicious! The falafel is sadly not gluten free but a lot of their food is and they have a detailed allergen menu. I told them I have a gluten allergy and they were very good about it - they changed their gloves and answered all my questions. There is definitely some risk of cross contamination cuz they do pitas also, but from what I saw the serving spoons don’t touch the pita.

Me and the other celiac person I came with both felt good after eating here!
