I have been a huge fan of The Hummingbird Bakery for many years and this is also my favourite location. I love it in summer where you can sit outside in the sunshine and indulge on their amazing bakes. I only wish they could expand...More

Wonderfully friendly beautiful little gem seating outside. Cakes to die for and so much information about the cakes from the girls in the shop.

Stopped off the the Hummingbird Bakery on our way to the history museum. The red velvet cupcakes are amongst the best I have ever tasted. On my next visit to London I will definitely stop off again!

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...More

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.

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
