“off the beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2010

This is a great place with lots of variety. Many of the entrees are vegetarian/vegan friendly, which is pleasant to find in this part of the country. The cajun fettuccine with tofu is outstanding! The waitstaff is super friendly and helpful. It wasn't a busy night when I went there, so service was efficient and we were never waiting for anything. Don't go to a chain - support local business. One World is a great example of comfort food done well with unexpected touches. Oh yes, and the steeped margarita is worth the visit alone.

“Hip bohemian eatery near Bradley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2010

Favorite among intellectuals, eclectic menu and very good dining for sophisticated tastes. Can get loud though and would not recommend for business lunch.

“A great place to grab food in Peoria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

Have eaten here a number of times, and will continue to go back. A great place to grab a simple dinner and drinks.

Not necessarily a special occasion place, but you should eat here rather than a chain.

“Great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2009

I recommend this place for a cup of coffee over Starbucks. Service is better, it has a little "local flavor" and they have some good coffee drinks. I liked the Mexican mocha.

“Great, unique place for an assortment of good eats!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2009

When you walk inside, you'll see the unique paintings and decor. With friendly, eclectic service, you won't be disappointed. The menu has a wide range from sandwiches to pizza to falafels so even your pickiest eater will find something they'll like. My personal favorite - the Spinich & Artichoke dip - best I've ever had! If you like to imbibe, there is a wide array of draft and bottle beers and the Bloody Mary's are very good. One World is always my first choice for great food and a great dining experience.
