Making healthy decisions when you’re on the go can be a tricky one. That’s why places like CAVA are a great, healthful choice that also happens to be one of our favorites. CAVA is a fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant that offers customizable bowls packed with flavor and food that will make
you feel good AND full. Founded by three childhood friends, Ike Grigoropoulos, Dimitri Moshovitis, and Ted Xenohristos, CAVA is based on family tradition and authentic Mediterranean cooking, offering its dishes through a modern, accessible format.

We know ordering at any place for the first time can be a bit overwhelming and it took us a few tries to figure out our favorites. But the easy-to-read menu and open display of food make this process much easier. Also, when in doubt, always ask questions!

Below, we’ve listed our favorite combo that we think will be a foolproof choice for a lot of people. Hope you enjoy!

Tomato + cucumber salad
Pickled banana peppers
Cauliflower quinoa tabbouleh
