First time

Pleasantly surprised by how good a dozen different ingredients tasted altogether. Helpful labels directly on the glass as you walk through the line and they build your order. I lol’d when I ordered half sweet potato/half falafel for my protein and they put literally 2 little falafel balls in the bowl. But in the end the joke was on me because I could only finish half the bowl and ate leftovers the next day.

Pros: Customizable, Consistency of a chain I imagine

Cons: Stressful if you’re unfamiliar with the menu

I cannot say enough about this place. I got the greens and grains bowl with falafel portion size is huge and only $10. I highly recommend if you are into healthy eating.

Quality Mediterranean Food

It's easy to select a bowl with only vegan options and the food is very flavorful. It's also popular with omnivores

Great bowls and wraps

The only protein option is Falafel balls (lentils, rice, roasted sweet potatoes and roasted veggies are honorable mentions), they tasted great in my grain bowl. Several toppings to choose from and they all taste great. Vegan options are marked well. Also, their cucumber mint lemonade was refreshing (ton of sugar) but I needed that after a good kayaking day. Cava app sucks on Android, just forget about getting any rewards.

Pros: Outdoor seating

Cons: Need to expand their protein sources

Good fast Mediterranean food

Build your own pita wrap or bowl. Lots of healthy options with different types of greens, brown rice, and lentils. Multiple different dips that are vegan along with falafel and roasted veggies.

Pros: Tastes good, Fast, friendly service

Cons: Wish there were even more vegan options!

Was very happy with my food, but, frankly, there’s no reason for a 45 minute wait to order.

Delicious Mediterranean style bowls, sort of like a Mediterranean Chipotle. Fresh greens, brown rice, lentils, veggies, falafel, hummus, and dairy free sauces.
