I've never been to Cava but I've wanted to try it for some time now. The menu is a little overwhelming, but the very patient and kind gentleman who assisted me in placing my order on Friday 7/14 made the process super easy. Everything was fresh, tasted amazing and I highly recommend the mint cucumber lime drink. I'll definitely be returning. I don't enjoy driving into Charlottesville but this restaurant is totally worth the trip.

So many vegan options from toppings to sauces and dips.

Pros: Fresh ingredients , Large variety , Helpful staff

Lots of healthy vegan options

It starts with a large bowl and a grain and or salad option. Add topping, fresh hot pita bread, a generous serving of sautéed veggies and homemade dressings. I have been to similar chains but this is the best one! Lots of vegan choices and very filling. The asst manager, Reggie, made us feel at home

Pros: Fresh and healthy vegan and a few non vegan option, Delicious, friendly staff

Cons: I wish there was a Cava in my hometown

Best falafel anywhere

This is a basic bowls restaurant, but I feel like it is the best one we have in Charlottesville. They menu is available at the door and is very clearly marked what is vegan. The falafel is great as are the roasted veggies. Some items change seasonally so you do have different options throughout the year. Soup and wraps available too but I haven’t tried these.

Pros: Clear communication about vegan, Options change, Build your perfect bowl

Cons: Parking lot is tight and a bit crazy
