Restaurant description

Within walking distance of Notting Hill, Portobello Market, Marble Arch and located just off Hyde Park, Café Forty One at La Suite West Hotel offers a unique vegan dining experience showcasing delicious and inspired vegan cuisine that defies the stereotypes surrounding plant-based food.

Café Forty One offers a deliciously unique vegan twist on classic dishes. A crossroad between luxury dining and café style ambiance, menus focus on seasonal, fresh and sustainable ingredients for breakfast, lunch, all-day dessert and afternoon tea. At the heart of the Café are contemporary vegan alternatives to French pâtisserie favourites.

The Café Forty One menu features British, Asian and French dishes with vegan twists, such as citrus-smoked ‘salmon’ and pomegranate salad, mushroom bourgignon pie and mash, and Asian slaw salad with buttery breaded shimeji mushrooms. The first vegan French pâtisserie in London, delicate desserts include interpretations of French strawberry tart, melt-in-your-mouth millefeuilles, and pavlova with fresh passionfruit, whilst the French Patisserie Afternoon Tea is an alternative to the great British tradition, with artisan sandwiches joined by scones and coconut cream, and a choice of non-alcoholic fizz, teas, juices and mocktails.

Set in the minimalist La Suite West boutique hotel in a busy area of London, the restaurant is sleek, elegant and opens up onto the hotel’s elegant garden terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining. La Suite West is a 2-minute walk from Bayswater Tube Station, a 3-minute walk from Queensway Tube Station and just one stop on the tube from Paddington Station.

    The food was very creative especially the smoked 'salmon' roll. Cakes were amazing too. You made vegan food exciting and inspiring. Lovely intimate setting and friendly staff. Would definitely visit again.

    The food was lovely but the tables were too close together and we felt like we were basically on the same table as the couple next to us which made us very uncomfortable. We ordered freshly squeezed orange juice and were brought concentrated orange juice which is crazy for the price !

    I attended the afternoon tea with my partner for our year anniversary and it did not disappoint. The room has a lovely atmosphere, the decor is beautiful. We were sat next to a leak in the ceiling which had unfortunately created a puddle on the floor and was dripping near my head - however, once I informed the staff, they were quick to act and profusely apologised. The food was beautiful - the rye bread sandwich with both of our favourites by a long way! Would definitely come back.

    Excellent food and service. We arrived for lunch and was not disappointed with the atmosphere or setting of a chic cosy restaurant. Would highly recommend.

    Being passionate vegans we travelled some distance to sample lunch at this completely vegan restaurant. It was our first experience of a vegan only restaurant and we greatly appreciated the opportunity to dine at such a venue - not having to share our lunch with other diners consuming the flesh and secretions of other sentient beings was a wonderful experience. Thank you! We were hugely impressed with our first course (bourginon pie and mash and truffle polenta) which was delightfully tasty and beautifully presented. The desert didn’t quite live up to the extremely high standards of the main course but was nevertheless enjoyable. Our visits to the ‘little boy’ and ‘little girl’s’ rooms was a very interesting experience being decorated throughout in black with very little lighting these trips required a torch! Overall, we felt it was well worth our extended travel to enjoy your hospitality. Thank you!
