    When you're craving Italian food, your sister wants tacos, your boyfriend wants a steak and your roommate is a vegetarian, where are you supposed to go for dinner together? Ramsi’s Café on the World, of course! This restaurant refers to itself as “the United Nations of Food,” and rightly so. It’s impressively eclectic menu has plenty of delicious and healthy offerings for every pallet.

    So regardless if you’ve never been to this local gem before, or you’re a world traveler of the restaurant’s menu, we have everything you’ll need when planning your next (or first) trip to Ramsi’s Café on the World.

    What to Wear:

    This restaurant offers a dining experience unlike any other with interesting artwork from all over the world and even a library, making it the perfect venue for a romantic date or to entertain out-of-town guests who want to taste the city. Casual attire is the norm for this spot, but feel free to dress according to the occasion.

    Where to Park:

    Located on busy Bardstown Road, Ramsi’s Café on the World is surrounded by plenty of street parking. Remember, it’s free to park at a meter after 6pm!

    What to Order:

    With such a wide variety of cuisine options to choose from, it’s hard to really get a taste of all this restaurant has to offer with just one meal. And for this reason, we highly recommend Ramsi’s Sunday brunch buffet. With an omelet bar, fruit table, hot bar and a full dessert table complete with cakes, parfaits and cookies, this is debatably one of Louisville’s greatest brunch spots. Typical brunch hot bar options include crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, zesty tofu scramble, both meat and vegetarian pot stickers, spicy black bean patties, sausage links, fluffy biscuits and gravy, cheesy tortellini, Greek salad, fried potatoes and scrumptious eggs benedict. Is it Sunday yet?

    For dinner, guests can’t go wrong with Ramsi’s Curried Chicken and Shrimp Paella. Thick cuts of chicken breast and perfectly seared shrimp are combined with plenty of carrots, snow peas and red peppers in a Thai sauce over brown rice in this delectable dish. We recommend finishing with the Arabian Desert Sundae: chocolatey baklava topped with ice cream, whipped cream and plenty of hot chocolate fudge.

    Vegetarians and vegans will love Ramsi’s Café on the World for the restaurant’s extensive list of meat-free options. The restaurant’s special Hope Farm Wellness Menu of entrees consists of nearly all vegetarian options for those seeking lighter fare. From the restaurant’s regular entrée menu, we recommend the Egyptian Kitchen. Unlike any food you’ve tried before, this traditional Egyptian dish combines soft chickpeas, savory lentils, fried onions, Basmati rice and toasted angel hair pasta with North African chili sauce. For those who aren't strictly vegan, we recommend adding a pair of organic poached eggs to this dish, and don't forget to add a side of Vietnamese braised organic hearty greens!  


    How Much:

    The brunch buffet costs $16.99 per person and includes access to the juice bar. Those dining for lunch or dinner should expect a bill of $19 - $37 when ordering an entrée, dessert and a specialty cocktail from the bar.

    Wait Time:

    Expect a wait time of up to 45 minutes when dining for brunch. When dining for dinner on the weekend, expect a wait time of up to 30 minutes.

    Ramsi’s Café on the World is located at 1293 Bardstown Road in the heart of the Highlands. Visit the restaurant’s website for the full menu.
