Growing up on the south side of Chicago, Bob, Sam and George Eid worked in their dad’s neighborhood stores learning about fresh produce, meats, and old fashioned customer service. The Eid brothers also spent time in the kitchen helping their mother turn simple ingredients in to great food. It was there they learned that great food and hospitality is an art that has the power to bring people together. The combination of the brothers entrepreneurial spirit and raw business experience was the spark for opening a café concept.
In 1993, the Eid boys and their friends opened One World, located on the corner of Main and University Streets, as a one room coffee shop and it quickly evolved to the One World that you see today, a full service restaurant and bar, built on the foundation of quality, consistency, variety and hospitality. Their guiding principle is that food and hospitality are art forms that can bring people together. They have a full menu serving breakfast and lunch all day. Dinner entrees are available after 4 p.m. everyday of the week. Their selection of fresh food served in a comfortable, artistic atmosphere gives us the unique flair that has helped them become a local favorite.
