Great menu

Variety and fresh food makes this restaurant a great choice. The shrimp egg rolls were large and delicious. Salads are large, and fresh. Popularity makes this cafe a little noisey.

The ambiance is very chic and ultra modern. The staff is unique and very college like since it is opposite Bradley University. Their wine list, beer selection and desserts are to die for !!! I always have the appetizer sampler with the hummus and samosas and it never disappoints !! Hungarian stuffed pepper is cooked to perfection and so is... More

We dined here for dinner last week. The beer selection is ample, and the drinks are affordable. The pizza was fresh made and some of the ingredients were unique. (I had a Pesto Chicken Pizza). Service was friendly and efficient.

We have visited One World Cafe many times and have never been disappointed. Great food, great atmosphere, and great service always. Parking can sometimes be a challenge but it is well worth that little inconvenience.

I have been wanting to eat here each time we have visited Peoria and haven't had the chance until this past weekend. We arrived about 10:30 on Saturday morning and was seated right away. We were seated by the bar/coffee area. It was VERY loud and distracting, so I would recommend asking to be seated somewhere in the main area... More

We went out of our way to eat at this restaurant based on reviews here and on Yelp. It did not disappoint. On the Sunday night we went, there was no wait to be seated. My son, the chicken tender King, said he really enjoyed his meal. I got the Mexican-like pizza. It was done well. I was particularly impressed... More

This place used to be a favorite. I find it so hit and miss lately. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's bad. They need to work on consistency. Love the atmosphere.

Wonderful, different menu that appears to cater to the modern, "hip" crowd. Food is plentiful and delightful.

Not your average small locally owned restaurant! Spacious to accommodate large dining crowd. Great food. Plenty of choices for any pallet. Not expensive! Fun, casual, relaxing and delightful place to eat or drink. There's a small bar inside too!

Over the years, I have been here several times. Their breakfasts are just OK. The lunch and dinner options look very good but I have not been there that time of day. The atmosphere is a little more like a diner and very casual. Students come in with laptops to have coffee. One World does have a very good reputation... More
