Pretty small but very cute bakery. I had the red velvet cupcake which was good, the chocolate and peanut butter whoopee which was good, and the black bottom cupcake which was delicious! I'll be back to try some other goodies, and get another black bottom cupcake.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

Cute little American bakery. It's very tiny inside seating wise, with enough space for around 4 people, so not as big as other hummingbird stores, making it more of a takeaway place. Don't let that put you off though, the cakes are to die for.

My personal favourite would be the lemon raspberry ripple cake, closely followed by the the rainbow cake. Portion sizes are very generous and more...more
