The server changed her gloves and followed me down the line making sure to not come in contact with any gluten. She even changed the bowl she was using that she touched prior to the glove change. Felt very safe and comfortable there. And I never got sick.

I requested clean gloves which was not a problem. I then requested fresh hummus from the back due to the high risk of cross contamination with those spoons they use on the pita. The guy looked at me like I was crazy and asked me to repeat myself. I did, he finally did it but helped everyone else out first. The guy then left and someone else had to take over mid -preparation. I got the harissa sauce on top and didn’t feel great after. I only ate about half of the bowl. Maybe if you go in when it’s not busy it’s better but I probably won’t be going back to this location.

Employees immediately washed hands and changed gloves when I let them know of my allergy. The allergen menu is very clear about what is safe to eat. Also, the specialty drinks and juices are delicious. I will go here again!

This Cava location is online ordering only, and there was no place to indicate a gluten allergy. But once I placed my order, I went inside and got someone’s attention from the back and let them know I have a gluten allergy. The server was very careful with my order and even packed it in a separate bag from my husband’s. Overall, great experience and I will be returning!
