Everything I have ever had to eat (pitas, pizza, cannoli) and everything I have ever bought (coffee press, hot & sweet paprika) have been "top shelf". Wonderful atmosphere (small--sometimes getting a table at lunchtime can be hard), Cookeville is lucky to have such a wonderful establishment.

We regularly eat at world foods. The food is excellent. The staff are great. This is a must try in Cookeville. Once you do you'll be hooked.

Love their choices of pizza. My favorite is the mozzarella with tomato. You can buy it by the slice or order a whole pizza. Their prices are very reasonable, especially considering the quality. To be honest, I haven't tried their other offerings because I am hooked on the pizza! Also, the owners and staff are very friendly and efficient. Give... More

I've eaten here a few times. Although the menu is very limited, the food has always been prepared wonderfully. It's an interesting place to eat. It's definitely not your typical restaurant. The seating is very limited, it can get crowded and you may have to get creative when it comes to getting a table. Perhaps even sharing with a stranger.... More

My husband and I both had Shawarma and Falafel. The Shawarma was excellent - seasoned without being too heavy on the spices, the sauce wS creamy and the pita bread was fresh and soft. The Falafel was very good too especially the yogurt and cucumber dip. It is a quaint little Grocery and Delicatessen in Cookeville. 🌄🏙🏜🏜

We ordered one Ruben & one Philly cheese steak to go. Both were nice quality sandwiches. The shop was small. Staff friendly & professional. Would stop in again.

Thank God for tripadvisor or we would never have come to this place. Driving home from the Nashville airport, we stopped for a quick bite. Upon reviewing the menu, we could not decide what to order. Everything sounded so good. We decided on a pepperoni and mushroom pizza, cheesesteak sandwich and dolmas ( stuffed grape leaves). I can not believe... More

We stopped in here on the way home from Nashville It certainly isn't fast food, but at the same time, the quality of the food was certainly worth it. I had the pepperoni pizza and it was the best I have had in a while. The crust was perfect, and the toppings had the flavor of high quality toppings. The... More
