About
Your neighborhood Mediterranean hangout, dedicated to shared plates and culinary excellence. Find us in Rockville, DC, Clarendon, Baltimore, and Olney. Established in 2006. In the summer of 2006, long-time friends Ike Grigoropolous, Ted Xenohristos, and chef Dimitri Moshovitis came up with the idea for Cava Mezze over coffee. As three children of Greek immigrants, and life-long Rockville residents, they aimed to bring mezze-style dining of from their parents' home to their home. Despite opening their first Cava Mezze in a once desolate shopping center, the restaurant thrives as a neighborhood hangout. From hand-building tables, to smashing tiles, each founder and their family poured every ounce

My daughter, her husband and I were all able to find multiple dishes that we enjoyed. Service was good. Dishes were delicious. Quiet atmosphere so we could talk. But please, offer serving utensils when dishes are to be shared!

We stopped here for a quick lunch during a convention. We appreciated the speedy service and the ease of ordering from food you could see already prepared. There is a seating area upstairs which is nice if also a but toasty in the summertime.

We were hungry...but not in the mood for a long fancy meal. Cava was great--with choices of a salad bowl, grain bowl, or wrap.

Pita (or soup) with mediterranean ingredients: choose your spread, veggies, meat, dressings, etc. Only 8-9 Dollars a piece, and about enough for a quick lunch, tasted great!

Being an old Greek I can be pretty set on how I expect Greek dishes to be prepared. I was pleasantly surprised by the Moussaka. It was individually prepared and tasted very fresh. Once I got past the different "look" I could taste the difference....More

Hi, I am so sorry for the delay - we were finally granted access to this location. We do have a rooftop and front patio, but unfortunately no real scenic view. We are on a very old beautiful street however :)

We had reservations but had a party of 6. But it seemed smaller parties were just walking in and being seated. It is small so never hurts to make reservations.
