The One World Spokane Cafe has reopened and is operating five days a week, reports general manger/owner Janet Raschko. It's at 1804 E. Sprague.
Organizers of the nonprofit food business closed it down late in 2010 to focus on reorganization.
Raschko said business has picked up, adding “feedback and business are good.”
Hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Every second Saturday the cafe is open the same hours.
Evening hours will occur for special events or as the schedule allows, Raschko said.

One World Spokane, the innovative non-profit restaurant at 1804 E. Sprague Ave., picked up a little attention in a recent story in the New York Times.
The Times story was headlined “Pay-What-You-Want Has Patrons Perplexed,” and examined what happens when restaurants offer meals at whatever price a customer chooses.
Anytime you make the payment voluntary, what happens? You tell us…would you pay the “suggested dining charge” or generally go a little less?
The story notes that Spokane’s One World was inspired by the One World Everybody Eats charity, based in Salt Lake City. Janice Raschko, the president of One World Spokane, said the One World Everybody founder came to Spokane two years ago to help the operation get started.
“We are only affiliated with them as mutual support and communication between us and anyone looking to open a kitchen in their community,” she added in a Facebook message (see the One World Spokane Facebook page).
