I've waited years to eventually visit a Hummingbird bakery after having several of the cookery books and following them on Facebook etc, so was really chuffed to finally make it to one. The Portobello Road bakery doesn't have seating, only a bar to lean on,...More

No need for that, however there are only a few chairs/tables available. Try getting the table by window:)
