Saw this place advertised in Angel Station so I sought them out. I got a vanilla cupcake with vanilla icing and a chocolate Valentine cupcake with chocolate icing. The vanilla cupcake was stale! The chocolate was more moist but for a chocolate cupcake the flavor was lacking. Both cupcakes are not filled to the top of the paper wrapper, about 1/4" down, and then there's a ton of frosting on...more

A very small unit, about 100m from Angel Stn.

There are 5 barstools to sit and eat inside.

They had the usual fantastic selection of cupcakes, pies,brownies etc

My favourite being the black bottom.

I have heard their richmond branch does an afternoon tea, so i think i will have to give this place a gomore

Meh. Very little selection and most cakes and cupcakes (perhaps even all of them) have cream cheese frosting which many love but I loathe, so there you have it. Will make the slightly longer trek to Gail's in Clerkenwell for my weekly dessert treat.

Additionally, next to no seating and the upcharge for eating in versus take-away is insane.more

Smaller than the other branches in Notting Hill or Soho, this Hummingbird Bakery offers the same or even more (as is less busy!) than the others. It is more a take away place as it only has 3 or 4 stools facing the wall, but when the weather is nice, you can sit outside and enjoy the coffee and the cupcakes!

All the cupcakes are amazing! My favourites are the Red Velvet and the Black Bottom...more
