“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

I couldn't believe it when I discovered The One Shoe had not been reviewed and I am slightly reluctant to spread the word and create a rush, but I’m a generous person and have decided to share my good fortune. The One Shoe is tiny, due to it being an old corner shop right on the end of King Edward Road – seats on the pavement under the awning where you can watch the world go by. I guess you would classify its menu as ‘take out’. They offer a wide variety freshly made and cooked to order paninis and delicious cakes. They serve coffee with flavour and real Cappuccino (not latte in a different cup) – someone there knows about coffee. It’s all so refreshing and different from the mass produced lunchtime fare to be found on the counters of the chain bakers or slightly suspect food from the local greasy spoon. To set the whole experience off and what really puts The One Shoe in a very special category is that it is all served by a staff who have the warmest of smiles at all times – how unusual is that?
