I will have to say that we had a taste of the pancakes, and they are delicious. However, they had something going on and they stopped serving breakfast when we walked in. So we had to order lunch. It was all pretty good. The fried Okra was delicious. And the sweet tea wasn't bad! (Normally they don't have it on... More

We stopped here between Dallas and Austin for a quick breakfast. Service was great, we had a lovely server who just didn't seem to stop. We both had omelettes which came with hash browns and a choice of toast, a biscuit, or pancake. My friend had the biscuit which was apparently great. It's all fair trade too, so all in... More

Went World Cup Cafe for breakfast on our arrival to Waco. The breakfast was delicious. We loved the Fair Trade shop that is behind the cafe. We were able to pick up some small unusual gifts while waiting for our breakfast. Will come again when we come to Waco.

Expect a slight wait but it is well worth it! Food was amazing. Perfect sunny-side up egg for me, scrambled for my sister. Buttery, crisp hash browns and the best French toast I have ever had! Serves the community through Mission Waco and outreach programs.

This is one of the oldest diners in waco, my grandparents used to go on dates there when they were in high school! It is very small but has a very welcoming feel when eating there. I would suggest this diner to anyone looking for a great inexpensive Lunch with family or friends. They are only open 'till 2:00PM

World Cup is a part of Mission Waco which ministers and serves the homeless and poor of Waco. So eating at World Cup is a small way to help support an amazing ministry. The food is always great (esp. Thursday meatloaf and any day chicken salad). Great place to meet friends. The fair trade center in the back features very... More
