We (my family and I) LOVE Cavé! We frequent as often as we can (it's an hour drive for us). Seriously worth every mile & every dollar. Clean REAL wholesome foods!

Enjoyed every bite! My family ordered different meals so we could share. After tasting my vegetable coconut curry, I wasn't happy about sharing! Everything including the burgers, side salad and sweet potato salad were very well seasoned. Do not leave without dessert! Ate one there...More

Cavé is a cute and trendy but small restaurant that serves healthy food we love to eat — their sweet potato hash is a must! We had their arugula salad and a almond butter brownie for dessert. You have to try this place!

We go to Cave almost every Saturday now. The ladies at IWG told us we had to try it, and they were right. 'The Bison, the Duck and the Egg' is perfection, absolute perfection. Juicy bison burger with sriracha and egg and avocado, over sweet...More

Love this place, for so many reasons, but the food is excellent and everything is gluten free. All local meat and produce, and you must leave with either a GF cookie or brownie!!!

Great place for everybody and even better for those on a strict paleo diet. Everything was tasty and the courses were well spaced and excellent service. Highly recommended. The deserts were incredible. Try the sliders. Easy on street parking. The caveman chicken soup was so...More

Hi there! The trout you see on the menu is local Sea Trout AKA Weakfish and is in no way related to salmon, it's mild and delicate white fish. This is not like freshwater rainbow trout at all. Please note that our fish... More
