CAVA brings sensational Mediterranean cuisine to Carrollwood

Carrollwood just landed its very own CAVA, and residents are in for a treat. One of the top rated quick service restaurants, CAVA, is working on a major expansion down the Tampa Bay region. The restaurant known for its falafel, spicy Harissa chicken, and roasted eggplant, just recently opened at 942 S Howard Avenue in South Tampa. It’s now open at 15028 N Dale Mabry Highway in Carrollwood.

CAVA started in DC with three Greek friends who wanted to share the thoughtful ingredients and bold Mediterranean flavors they grew up loving. Now you can find their fast-casual restaurants full to the brim with all the bright, craveable ingredients you need to build a meal that fits your food-style, cravings, and appetite.


Their chef-crafted line of dips and spreads are waiting on the shelves of Whole Foods and specialty markets nationwide. The restaurant also recently debuted a location on 4th Street North in St. Petersburg.

Hungry visitors should treat themselves to the sensational grain bowls filled with Saffron Basmati Rice, or filled up on the crunchy splendor of super greens and organic arugula. Harissa honey chicken, spicy lamb meatballs, and flavorful roasted vegetables round out the exceptional array of proteins on the menu. 


This nutrition focused restaurant also has a full menu of fresh juices. The variety of juices changes with each season.
