“Yummy Mediterranean food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 NEW

Great food, very inexpensive and fast. One of my favorite spots in Bethesda. I love the "minis" which gives you 2 small pitas so you can have two different fillings. Piled with lettuce and tomato, choice of dips (delicious tsatsiki and hummus). Bowls don't look like a lot of food but then no one could finish! My only complaint is the restaurant is very loud and you have to yell to speak to your dining companions.

“Mmmmm good. Get the Pita or the bowl.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Great place to grab lunch or dinner, where they make the food right in front of you. I tried the meatball pita with feta spread and some other toppings, while my friend got the bowl, which seamed like more food because of the rice. Try it out if you like pita's or any other similar regional food. It is tasty and a good portion.

“Delicious, casual, affordable Mediterranean food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

This is our favorite "go-to" spot in Bethesda.Kind of a Chipotle concept but Mediterranean and BETTER IMO! Huge variety of choices--everything is so fresh and delicious, and very generous portions! You order at the counter in the back so you can see all your options, which is kinda nice.

(1) Choose a "base" of salad (too many types to list!), bowl with basmati rice, large single pita, or two mini pitas. (2) Then choose your protein ranging from chicken, spicy lamb, grilled meatballs, beef, falafal and others, you can even get 1/2 portion of two different proteins. (3) Choose up to 3 dips and spreads: tzatziki, crazy feta (YUM!), red pepper and regular hummus, spicy harissa, eggplant dip. (4) Choose as many toppings as you'd like: lots of different veggie combos with tomatoes, cucumbers and onions, greek vinaigrette, kalamata olives, tahini, rice, greek yogurt w/dill, and more. Also extras like soup and awesome pita chips.

You can carry out, or eat there. Very cool modern vibe. You can also set up an online account in about 3 seconds, order in advance, and it will be ready for pickup.

REALLY reasonable prices--a bowl or salad is around $8.50 and the large single pita or two minis are only $7.25. So many awesome flavors and textures! GO! You won't regret it!

“Fast Mediterranean Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I love the concept-walk up to the counter, make your selection and you get good food fast and at a reasonable price. Cava introduced me to my new favorite dip - harissa. I love this with pita chips or with hummus and pita chips. I swear it is addicting and everyone I have introduced it to falls in love with it.

“Fresh tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The food at Cava is always fresh, well presented and very tasty! I just love this place and each time I go I really enjoy my pita! I always order the same thing pita, with Harissa and eggplant spread and I have the falafel - so tasty! Service is quick and the place is clean! Very good value for money.
