    ....get something that's close in color/style,
    remove the grout around it with a multi tool grout remover (or a grout remover hand tool),
    hammer and wide brick chisel on the edge to pop it off
    clean off the old glue and grout...easy with the multitool 1/2 circle grout remover
    cut a new tile, glue and grout


    Otherwise maybe a quick fix with grout or epoxy grout

    Could silicon down an angle moulding over the edge to hide it.

    Could use a tile step tread also (matt black), depends how much effort you want to go to.

    Think I vote for a step moulding
