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.

    Fantastic and attentive service, and absolutely divine food, absolutely top class all round. And not at all overly-expensive given the level of the food and the area the restaurant was in. Drinks were delicious, main courses were fantastic and the desserts were out of this world.

    We had gone previously to Café Forty One to check out the Vegan Afternoon Tea, as well as the Valentines pop up dinner; both of those 2 meals were absolutely fantastic, so we decided to go and try out their breakfast menu. The third time around was just as good as the first and second, this is truth! We both had the Full English breakfast which was absolutely phenomenal?? Everything was super delicious and once again you could feel the love in the food! What is more, the service at Cafe Forty one is truly second to none! We are always treated so very well, and in particular Marie is such an absolute gem of a human being???? She is always so kind, caring, and she really is such a wonderful human being, to say the least! We will definitely be back, and we already have reservations to go and try out the lunch menu this coming Friday! Keep up the great work and here is wishing you all a wonderfully equanimous day, filled with peace, love, health, happiness, and truly so very much more ?? With all the Metta in the world to you all today and every single day of your lives, Noah

    We had booked for afternoon tea and understood that gluten free options were available and the menu stated the same. When we came to order we were told that gluten free options were not available and that we should have pre-booked for this option. Disappointingly, this meant that we decided not to have afternoon tea and had desserts instead. So it was not quite the experience we had envisaged.

    The indoor area is not particularly nice but not awful. I would suggest to wait the summer as the outdoor part is super nice. We tried the vegan afternoon tea which is 35GBP per person. It was very disappointing, except one sandwich and 1 pastry which was good, the rest was really not good. This is a shame, as we were really looking forward to it, and finding a good vegan pastry place, but we were very disappointed. Especially at that price... It is way too over priced for the quality of the food (I have not tried the normal menu though).

    Lovely staff and ambience. I was a little disappointed by the afternoon tea. It looked amazing but tasted average. There is a lot of vegan competition now so my expectations are high.

    I was very happy with everything; the food, the drinks, the service, the atmosphere, the location, the price. It was a nice experience and I would recommend it to everyone.

    The desserts were old, stale and tasteless. The savories were also not tasty since there was so much smoky taste going on. The only eatbale thing was scones, jam and honey. The waitresses were good and attentive. The ambiance was ok not very interesting or luxurious. I wouldn’t recommend this experience. It was over priced for the level of afternoon treats we ate. The coffee and tea was also not very good quality.
