This very good restaurant is near Bradley University and the crowd was young and energetic. The menu has something for everyone and my dinner and dessert were very good. I will return, and I recommend One World for lunch or dinner. If you go on Friday night, be prepared to wait. (I doubt they take reservations.)

After reading a handful of great reviews and passing by One World Cafe constantly I just had to stop in and see what it was all about. And I am glad I did so. Considering its proximity to Bradley University it had that college hang out vibe to it. The walls were filled with what appeared to be paintings from... More

The One World cafe has an eclectic menu of very good food. My wife and daughter ordered three different items. The gyro platter had thick slices of gyros meat; the fried tilapia on a ciabatta roll tasted excellent; both came with sides, we ordered the vegetable medley was cooked just right and had excellent seasonings. The thrid item we got... More

Love love love! This place is awesome!! We always have great time with friends! The food is amazing and the service is great! The cuban pork sandwich is my favorite! Also love the spinach and artichoke dip and the cubano pizza! To drink, I usually order an ice green tea with berries that is delicious! A must-go in Peoria!

I have eaten at One World for 20 years. It's a great place and the food is always delicious. Over the years if I have had something not quite right (I think once a pizza I ordered didn't have the correct topping), they are quick to rectify their mistakes. I have never had a bad or even mediocre experience here!... More

It's rated #1 for a reason. I've been there for breakfast lunch and dinner, with colleagues, dates, and family. It is always great. The Cuban sandwich is a solid choice, and you can't go wrong with any of the delicious salads. We have also had the wraps, including the shrimp wrap which is my favorite, flatbread pizza and hummus, among... More

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
