Best Restaurant for Vegetarians

One World Café

100 W. University Parkway, (410) 235-5777,

Posted 9/19/2007

One World Café has scored major points with us in the last few years for not resting on its laurels as more and more vegetarian-oriented eateries have sprung up around town, but rather evolving into a first-class café that would stand out even if it were teleported into a larger, more progressive city. The soups have floored us of late (particularly the curries, when available), but it's some of the blandest-sounding offerings, like the organic tofu club (packed tight with greens and tempeh "bacon") and rotating, ever-inventive burgers of the day, that continue to take us by surprise with their freshness and complex, unexpected flavors. One World has also emerged as one of our favorite spots for brunch; it took us several dozen helpings of the blue-corn pancakes with blueberries before we even considered moving on to something else. One qualm: We wish One World would take the lead and phase out smoking at the bar before the ban takes effect--it's a vegetarian restaurant, fer Christ's sake!
