Our Top Christmas Bakery Picks in Kensington & Chelsea

By Mountgrange Heritage December 2023

Embrace the warmth and joy of Christmas with a delightful culinary tour through the finest bakeries in Notting Hill, North Kensington and Kensington.

Buns From Home

The owner of our Notting Hill team’s favourite bakery opened his business from his Mum’s kitchen in the middle of lock-down.  Less than three years on and he has a small chain of bun stores throughout the capital.  The hand-rolled buns are made using French laminating techniques and copious amounts of butter. The resulting buns are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  For those craving the comfort of home-baked buns, Buns From Home delivers deliciousness straight from the oven. It’s time to savour their special edition cinnamon buns, cardamom twists and cranberry-studded delights that evoke the warmth and coziness of home at Christmas.


KURO Coffee House and Bakery

For a one-of-a-kind blend of coffee and baked delights, make a stop at KURO Coffee House and Bakery in Notting Hill. Enjoy specialty brews paired with freshly baked treats and savour their limited edition Christmas Sakuros – light and fluffy chai-flavoured cream with a chocolate toffee surprise. It’s the perfect pitstop for your festive sweet treats.


Sally Clarke

No exploration of Kensington’s culinary scene is complete without a visit to the legendary Sally Clarke shop on Kensington Church Street. This renowned bakery offers an exquisite selection of pastries, cakes and seasonal specialties. This Christmas, indulge in the artisanal craftsmanship of our favourite panettone from Chef Michele’s home town in Puglia. Made with olive oil it is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee.


Ottolenghi – Ledbury Road

Nestled in the backstreets of Notting Hill is where it all began, the first Ottolenghi deli. Explore unique twists on classic holiday treats at Ottolenghi, where Mediterranean-inspired delights take centre stage. Dive into festive spiced cakes, intricately decorated cookies, and savoury bakes infused with Middle Eastern flavours. Ottolenghi is a must-visit for those seeking bold and innovative Christmas delicacies.


Fabrique – Portobello Road

Known for its Nordic-style baking Fabrique embraces the holiday season with Scandinavian-inspired treats. Don’t pass by without trying their traditional cinnamon and cardamon buns.  The saffron-infused buns are loved by kids and the gingerbread spiced rolls give a taste of Christmas.


Biscuiteers – Kensington Park Road

Indulge in artisanal, hand-iced biscuits that are almost too beautiful to eat at Biscuiteers. Their Christmas collection features intricately designed biscuits, making for a visually stunning and delicious addition to your holiday gatherings or the perfect stocking filler.  Kids simply love them.


Lisboa Patisserie – Golborne Road

Experience the authentic taste of Portugal at Lisboa Patisserie, a beloved Portuguese-style bakery on Golborne Road. With a history dating back to the early 1990s, this bakery has become a household name in the Ladbroke Grove community. While year-round favourites like pastel de nata captivate the locals, the holiday season unveils a traditional Portuguese Christmas cake ‘Bolo Rei’ adorned with candied fruits and nuts.


We hope you love these eats and treats as much as we do.  Happy Holidays!
