The Hummingbird Bakery
Since 2004 The Hummingbird Bakery on Portobello Road in Notting Hill, one of London's most vital districts, offers all of the great All-American pastry classics.
Here you may savour original cupcakes, cream pies, and brownies of every kind, not to mention the Red Velvets, chocolate and raspberry meringue with vanilla icing.
Among the many types of cupcakes, don't miss the Tiramisu Cupcake and the S'moreAnne Cupcake with chocolate sponge topped with a marshmallow meringue, biscuit crumbs and dark chocolate squares.
Of course, there are the classic American pies like Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie and Banana Cream Pie, with also Whoopie Pies, similar to the large, soft macarons.
These are sweets that seem made precisely for satisfying the most irresistible indulgences, and that may be enjoyed even more strolling along Portobello Road.
Besides the shop on Portobello Road, The Hummingbird Bakery has two other stores respectively on Old Bromton Road and on Wardour Street.
In all of the Hummingbird Bakery shops one may purchase the original recipe book, The Hummingbird Gallery Cookbook.
