A must try in Peoria! Excellent food! We loved it all! In our group we tried the nachos, the Cuban sandwich, the BBQ chicken pizza, the "one hell of a burger", and the garden burger and bistro salad. Everyone loved their food. The chocolate cake (gigantic colossal) was also amazing!! Highly recommend!

I've eaten several time at One World while visiting Peoria and I'm never disappointed! Their menu has many unique items. It's close to Bradley University and has always been busy when I have dined there. My absolute favorite is the BISTRO salad; it has a strawberry dressing that is to die for! ($13.00) Another favorite, is the Cuban pork sandwich... More

What a surprise in Peoria. I have traveled here for work for a few years now and found much of the standard midwest meat and potatoes. This was a unique restaurant with very innovative food. I had their shrimp jambalaya and it was wonderful. Shrimp was cooked perfect, spice was good and presentation was nice. Definitely a place to come... More

We read the reviews and walked all the way up to the cafe from the riverfront. A warm welcoming place with great menus to choose from. Try the scrambled stuff!

Arrived at 11:45am and had to wait to be seated. There were open tables all around. Our party of 3 ordered a salad and 2 sandwiches. It took 20 mins for meals to arrive and they never brought the bread that came with the salad. Food is tasty but nothing special for the price. Cannot eat here if you only... More

I went to One World while my cousin was at work. I was greeted and seated very quickly. I'm a vegan and everything on the menu looked great. I had the Herbivorian as a wrap with the roasted vegetables. I ate the roasted vegetables first because I had a question and the waitress was busy. The vegetables were roasted and... More

I have enjoyed the One World breakfast and dinner's and will always go back. This place is a classic in Peoria and always provides great food. I was disappointed in their falafel on the last trip - it was overly spicy and overcooked. Besides that experience the food is usually great. There is nothing on the menu that I have... More

My wife and I stopped on for breakfast just after it opened at 7 AM. Ordered a breakfast pizza (the Denver)and were very pleased with our choice. Never had one before but would definitely have it again if we get back to Peoria. Service was great and staff friendly.

This morning another couple and my wife and myself decided we would have breakfast at one world. After entering an almost empty restaurant the hostess asked how many, we told her four and she said it would be a few minutes. In the meantime another couple walked in, they asked them how many people would be eating they said four... More

Hi there, I am so sorry about your recent experience at One World. After looking into what happened, we determined that another employee (not the host), in an attempt to help, sat the table that came in after you, while the host was still cleaning off the table intended for you. I apologize that that was not communicated effectively -... More
