One One Supermarket is both a tiny grocery store as well as a smoothie shop. The store side sells quite a bit of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as some convenience type items (crackers, etc). The real draw here are the fresh fruit smoothies, complete with tapioca pearls (optional). The sign on the window claims "fresh fruit" and "no powder" so we're off to a great start already.

Step inside and you'll see a large menu of smoothie options, complete with photographs of each. Hey, I like to see what I'm getting before I get it. And, yes, I do order by color occasionally. In this case, something purple caught my eye and it was blueberry so I ordered one up.

While I was waiting on the girl behind the counter to make the smoothie, the owner of the shop, Tina, said hello and chatted me up a bit. Sometimes when I step into one of these very local, hole-in-the-wall type shops or restaurants I wonder how welcome I'll be. Sure, it's a business and they want my money as much as the next guy but you don't always feel overly welcome. So it's nice when an owner, like Tina, comes over to say hello. It's that sort of touch that you won't get at the franchise smoothie places that make me want to come back.

As for that smoothie? It was around $4.50 and incredibly good. Fresh, sweet, delicious. If this place was closer I'd be be the Norm Peterson to their Cheers.
