Our Londoner friend brought us here while strolling around Notting Hill. Among all food stalls along the street, please do not miss trying their lovely, beautiful cupcakes! We tried the red velvet, salted caramel and nutella, matching out cuppas. They probably serve the best. Unbeatable, incomparable!

Being new in London was looking for a birthday cake to wow my kids. I found Hummingbird Bakery on Portobello Street as the one closest my new home. I ordered the rainbow cake. While it looked beautiful, I was a bit skeptical of it's taste. I asked the nice lady behind the counter how good was it really because it... More

Hummingbird Bakery is located just around the South Kensington station and has tons of food and shopping located in the area. The best part of this bakery though, would be the tasty treats! The cupcakes are delicious and the drinks are crafted fantastically. This is a perfect stop for an after dinner treat!

Definitely the best cupcakes I have ever eaten! I highly recommend their red velvet and salted caramel cupcakes, which are SO SO GOOD! Though they are a little pricey, I think it's totally worth the money!

Honestly the best cupcakes you'll ever eat. I used to work next door to the Richmond branch and popped into Notting Hill this weekend to introduce my friend to Hummingbird cupcakes. A really friendly girl asked how our weekend was going and packaged up the red velvet and black bottom cupcakes nicely. Would definitely recommend and return based on the... More

We came here whilst in Notting Hill on our way to the Portobello Rd Markets. We ordered some cupcakes and coffee. The coffee was average and nothing amazing but the cupcakes were very nice. The service wasn't great and we spent ages paying as the server couldn't work out how much we owed and get the computer to work.

An iconic Notting Hill location. World class cupcakes and coffee. Dream of the fluffy cakes and icing.

A lot of hype, so we decided to try It out. The icing was delicious but the cake itself was a dry and flavourless. Great range for normal cupcakes but only one gluten free option which I find really limiting as most bakeries offer a lot more options. I think London has far better places that offer unique treats!

Now that I've moved to London I decided that I must try the Hummingbird Bakery as the reviews have always been so great. I had the carrot cake and it was incredible - took me 3 attempts to eat it! Mum had the Red Velvet Cake and also really enjoyed it. I was a bit disappointed as I'd seen eat... More
