As a former Bradley student, I've been to One World countless times. (I actually met up with some friends there last night!) They have great food for everyone! I've been here with my family, with my friends, and my girlfriend and I have dated here many times. Love it.

Welcoming, eclectic cafe with diverse menu and clientele. Delicious hummus and veggie appetizer. My daughter had "the best piece of chocolate cake ever" that I believe stood 4 stories high. Right across from Bradley University. Highly recommend.

We stopped by in the late afternoon when it was not busy and what a gem!! Both of us need gluten free and this is the place to go. The wait staff knew what we were talking about, and the menu states that gluten free bread is available for all sandwiches, and gluten free pizza crust for ANY pizza! Wonderful!!... More

My husband and I had lunch there today in celebration of our 49th wedding anniversary. The fish tacos and the Sante Fe chicken wrap were delicious! The chips and salsa were outstanding! Only downside was the noise from people talking, but it was very busy right around noon. We will definitely return, but later after the lunch crowd has dispersed.

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
