I'm puzzled by the high ratings that this bakery continues to receive- either people have bought into the hype or are not used to better tasting goodies. I've purchased goods from them four times over 2 years and as recent as September and sadly the...More

Amazing cupcakes - the Halloween themed cakes looked amazing. I only wish I’d known that a box of mini cupcakes needed to be ordered 24 hours in advance - still the Nutella cupcake was very tasty

Went for a mid-morning coffee and cake at my wife's request (she has all the Hummingbird Bakery books). The shop is really a take-away with a few seats and a a couple of tables outside. There are no customer toilets either (which is worth knowing)....More

We had seen this on TripAdvisor earlier in the week but they close early. On Saturday they are open later so we stopped and got our desserts. Highly recommend the Lemon Raspberry sponge cake. We we're both very pleased.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
