Fantastic old world feel!

This classic has the feel of an Italian shop on a side street in Rome - the cheeses and meats, the collection of international foodstuffs and the great food and drink served on site all combine to make this a fun and different place to have lunch or early dinner.

Was advised to get a Lahmacun and I was glad I did. The spicy beef with cut up veggies on pita bread was pretty good. Good enough for me to get it again on the second visit. The owners are very kind and made the visit that much better. A bit of a squeeze to order your food and grabbing... More

If you're looking for an international meal look no further.This small proprietorship is home to delicious food and a cozy ambiance. Pricing is just right for college students and along with great food made in store but also many international packaged foods that you can take home. If I had to say something negative about this wonderful establishment would be... More

Stopped in for a quick pizza slice for lunch one day and have been hooked ever since. Their 4 cheese pizza is the best thing I have ever had in my life. In fact, every dish I have tried there has been amazing. I don't know what they are doing, but I hope they keep it up!

This place is a must stop. Pull of Interstate 40 at Cookeville and eat here. Not only was the pizza the best we have ever had the place is adorable. The woman (I assume she was the owner) was very friendly which added to the quaint atmosphere. Everything on their menu looked great. The pizza crust was thick and perfectly... More

I have been visiting this place for years and it rocks! They use the best ingredients and everything on the menu is awesome. The veggie pizza is particularly tasty!

We go to World Foods every Saturday for lunch and it never disappoints. The food is always delicious and the service is fantastic! We have been to many other downtown restaurants for lunch and none compare to World Foods pizza. We love this place!!

World Foods is a fantastic gem on the west side of town near the old train depot. The first time I went I saw the menu and prepared myself for small portions because the prices were so low. Not so at all! For just a few dollars you can have sumptuous eggplant parm, fresh and zesty falafel, and authentic tabouli.... More

Make the trip off of the interstate and bypass the chain restaurants, if you want a unique experience. The food is always excellent and the staff is fast with the service. They only have five tables but the experience is worth the wait if you have to. If you can't get in, there are several other great local restaurants on... More
