CAVA Mediterranean restaurant opening in Water Street Tampa

A street scape. Cars are parked on the side of the road. A brick patterned sidewalk runs down the center of the road. Trees provide shade on the sidewalk.

CAVA is rapidly expanding in the Tampa area. It recently debuted locations in Carrollwood, 4th Street North in St. Pete, and South Tampa. Soon it will open another counter service restaurant in the booming Water Street Tampa District. The restaurant known for its falafel, spicy Harissa chicken, and roasted eggplant will open its third Tampa location at 904 E Eunice Avenue. They are currently hiring for positions at the restaurant, though an official opening timeline is still TBA.

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.

A signature Pita Wrap at CAVA

I personally can’t get enough of the signature pita wrap with falafel, pita crisps, and taziki dip. 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.

Must try bowls at CAVA:


  • Chicken + Avocado Bowl: Harissa honey chicken + hot harissa vinaigrette. Crazy Feta, hummus, corn, avocado, rice, SuperGreens
  • Tahini Caesar Bowl: Grilled chicken, hummus, pita crisps, pickled onions, feta, romaine, arugula, Tahini Caesar dressing
  • Balsamic Date Chicken: Grilled chicken, eggplant dip, red pepper hummus, corn, brown rice, spinach, balsamic date vinaigrette
