Whenever in London, we always make a point of visiting Hummingbird. They offer a great selection of cupcakes, tray bakes and cakes, all of which are out of this world. A personal favourite is the salted caramel cupcake, which is just perfect. It's well worth a visit. The cakes are reasonably priced and the staff are lovely and friendly. There's... More

I've tried many cupcakes in my life up and down the country, but I can confirm… Hummingbird is deffo the winner this far! Lovely moist sponge, great flavour and a beautiful presentation of each piece. I will be returning here for those birthday cakes from now on! They are a little pricy compared to other cake shops, however well worth... More

Absolutely delicious, favourite is raspberry lemon cake. So good. Generous slice, has to be for the price. Cup cakes are a bit too sweet and smothered with cream, the chocolate cake is extremely filling, had is a takeaway and it to took three goes to finish slice. Rich, don't bother with rainbow cake. Looks good but boring taste.

There are a few options for coffee locally but this is actually a pretty good one, and a cupcake on the side is not a bad start to the day!

Lovely bakery on Brompton Road, it was also a few yards away from our rented apartment. They do serve coffee and mainly cakes, cupcakes, anything sweet. Don't look for breads or croissants because they don't have it. A good place to satisfy any sweet cravings.

Passed this by coincedence. Looked very lovely and appealing from the in and outside. Cupcakes are rich, full and just taste very good. You get it in a nice package to take away and employees are friendly.

We walked past this adorable bakery when we first arrived in South Kensington, where we stayed on our recent trip. It was closed on Sunday when we arrived. My son wanted to visit, so we popped in early on Monday while the rest of the family slept. Just a minute walk from the tube station, the exterior is adorable, and... More

Been here three times now as it's right next door to the car dealership I was purchasing my car from. I usually buy the cakes as gifts but they are very expensive. I have all their baking books and find I can make them just as tasty at home however the presentation is much better on the real thing. Staff... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
