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

Went for a coffee and cake one Saturday after visiting V and A with family. Myself and Mum are both wheat intolerant so we make sure wherever we go that we have options!! They only do the gluten free red velvet cupcake!! Don't get me wrong- it was gorgeous but so disappointing when we were looking at another 30 different... More

The hummingbird bakery certainly lived up to its reputation of incredible cakes. I had the raspberry and lemon ripple cake which was moisture and tasty and well worth the £4.65 price tag. Gorgeous packaging too!!

On passing by one day when I was super hungry I bought a bunch of their cupcakes, brownies, cake slices and also their whoopie pies. Everything looked so tasty but was disgustingly sweet and didn't taste anything except sugar and caramel in some cases. The cupcakes were alright but their frosting were soooooo sweet that it felt like I would... More

I wish I could eat one of these every day of my life, only tried the one flavour but based on how incredible it was I would recommend you get at least 2 - one for now, one for later ;)

Staff were Friendly ! Vanilla cupcakes are gorgeous. Packaging is so nice it's like being a child in a sweet shop. Could have a bit more of a variety of cold drinks though

Wow! The cakes here are big and I mean big and taste amazing! They won't skimp on the portion sizes. I stopped in here for tea and cake one evening and the atmosphere was lovely, it wasn't too crowded and the cakes tasted fresh and oh so good! I had the frosted brownies and would recommend them to any chocoholic!... More

I have tried cupcakes from various places but i love hummingbird ones the best. For some the sugar frosting is just too sweet and overpowering but i really like it. Maybe thats why it goes down well with a massive cup of coffee! Red velvet signature is my favourite but also like the chocolate bottomed one. Regards Omar

The Hummingbird Bakery is massively overrated. There is nothing special about their cakes. The red velvet cupcake was nice but I could have paid half the price somewhere else and it would have tasted the same.

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.
