I have only ever bought coffee from the One Shoe which is has always been superb. Though I must say that the toasted panini and snacks always look very tempting.

This is a lovely little cafe tucked on the corner, it's a tiny place so you may have a little wait but it's worth it. Great choice of panini's and baguettes along with good coffee and very tempting cakes.

Went back to our old uni house on the tatty king Edward road and found this great little place. Excellent coffee, great service and really good panini and bagels at a great price. Only 3-4 seats indoors but very nice.

This cafe is very easily missed but it is worth looking out for it. This is located at the bottom of the hill I used to live on and it's such a great place for food and coffee! The bacon rolls are tasty, cooked while you wait and given to you by people who really care about providing great customer... More

One Shoe Cafe is very small and easily missed. Me and my partner went on the hunt for this place a few months ago after someone told us that they do the greatest panini's and we've been going there ever since. I always pay this place a visit for a little treat. The staff there are always welcoming and pleasant... More
