Greek
Prepare to indulge in unique Greek-inspired dishes, skillfully crafted by talented Chef Dimitri Moshovitis. All dishes are served mezze style—in small plates, but with portions large enough to share. Cava’s mezze-style dining inspires conversation and laughter at the table. The dim candle-lighting and black and white family photos adorning Cava’s charming brick interior walls creates a welcoming atmosphere. A dining experience at Cava is incomplete without a glass of wine. So pair your meal with one of our upscale, yet affordable wines.

Cava is the perfect atmosphere for a relaxed brunch environment! Me and my friend sat outside, our server was accommodating and not intrusive. The food was delicious, the mimosas were boozy (25 cents) and we were not rushed. I can not wait to return!

Cava mezze was wonderful! Great ambience and even better food! We really enjoyed the lamb chops, the lollipop chicken, and the octopus. The entree plates are a bit on the smaller side.. we got 3 entrees (plus an appetizer) for 2 people and it was perfect! Highly reccomend this place! Will definitely be going back!

Our server, Victor was excellent, as well as the food, except the calamari, could not figure out what Cava was serving for calamari. We have been coming to Cava for years, but this was the first had calamari like this. We were at Cava last month and had real calamari, please return to what you have been serving.

It was me & my dates first time there & we will definitely be back! We loved the food & the value that we got for the food that was served. It was amazing! Only complaint is that the music was too loud on the upstairs patio so we had to talk louder than usual to be able to hear one another but other than that, everything else was great!!!

Brunch is three courses and they let us know they send food out as it’s ready, however every time a course came out my dish always took the longest to arrive even though for the second course three of us ordered the same dish but they only brought out two. 20 mins later I pointed it out to the server and he quickly brought my food. Seemed very chaotic and the food quality was not good. Very disappointing experience.

I love the environment and energy every time I visit. Our server was a amazing, very patient with half my party arriving late. I will continue to come back and enjoy the food. I try something new every time and haven’t been disappointed yet.

The food was not good that day. I’m not certain if the chef Dimitri was there but it wasn’t good. I normally love Cava Mezze but it was terrible.

We were seated outdoors upstairs on a chilly, drizzly New Years Eve night during the pandemic. The bartender and waitstaff were very cordial and the food was very good. Only one other couple was seated in our area. The owner’s music playlist was right up my alley! Although open air, we were under cover and propane heaters took the edge off of the weather. It turned out to be a lovely evening and one to remember. Stay strong!

Honestly I have always had a great experience for brunch here. Victor and Dave have always taken great care of our party. The constant experience every single time has me always returning with my friends to have great service and an even better time with the Cava Crew. Food, ambience, and energetic staff make it 5/5 stars every single time.
