As Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! remains open for in-person dining, carryout and delivery, we are taking precautions to ensure you remain confident in dining with us. Dine-in services remain at reduced capacity, and masks are worn by all employees at all times. We’ve introduced disposable and digital menus, and will maintain thorough sanitation procedures and continuous hand washing.

For your health and safety, our policy is that all guests must wear a mask when entering, exiting and moving about the restaurant, and interacting with staff. Thank you for doing your part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

We’re Making Dining Indoors Safer

As the temperatures drop and dining moves indoors, our top priority remains our commitment to providing a safe, clean, and healthy experience. That is why we are excited to implement technology developed by AIRPHX into all Lettuce restaurants nationwide. After extensive research and with the advice of experts, we’ve concluded that this is the best system for us.

How It Works

AIRPHX features “cold plasma” chambers intended to kill harmful airborne and surface organisms throughout the day. Used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, Olympic training centers, universities, and more, it eliminates 90-98% of influenza, coronaviruses, norovirus, hepatitis, salmonella, listeria, e.coli, and more than 30 common bacteria and viruses both in the air and on surfaces.

This is just one more important step that we are taking to continue improving health and safety measures in our restaurants, and we want to thank you for your continued confidence in us.
