Each community cafe is as unique as the community it serves. One World Everybody Eats is dedicated to increasing food security for all through the pay-what-you-can restaurant model. And we support nearly 50 independent nonprofit cafes with education, collaboration, best practice sharing, and networking opportunities to ensure every cafe and every community is empowered to ensure food security for all.
While every cafe is doing great work in its community, One World Everybody Eats would like to honor one cafe in the coming year and highlight the impact it is making. Locally One Bistro is in the running for Community Cafe of the year. You can vote online once daily between now and December 15th at
One Bistro in Xenia opened in 2015 and is a full service bistro serving lunch on Wednesday through Friday from 11 am to 2 pm and Brunch on Saturday from 8 am to 2 pm Some patrons pay what they can; while others pay it forward!
All menu prices are a “suggested price” as we embrace a “pay what you can afford” concept with the following payment options.
- Pay what you can afford. If unable to pay, give your time in service as payment.
- Pay the full amount of the suggested price.
- Pay the full amount of the suggested price, plus a little extra to “pay it forward.” When you “pay it forward” by $6, you cover the cost of one meal for someone else to enjoy.
