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 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.

    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.

    We had a wonderful two course vegan meal. The staff were very friendly too!

    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 !
