Embassy describes itself as a restaurant, a tearoom, a bakery, a delicatessen, a confectionery and a catering service. Founded in 1931 by an Irishwoman, it was originally a meeting place for the Madrilenian bourgeoisie and political class, where one could have the classic English afternoon tea in an elegant and sophisticated environment, a tradition that continues to this day.
Highlights include products like sea urchins, anchovies from the Bay of Biscay, Beluga caviar, mi-cuits, mojama (salted tuna) and all sorts of chocolate, such as bonbons, truffles or ‘langues de chat’, amongst other delicacies.
In the tearoom one can enjoy continental, English and Spanish breakfasts, as well as chocolates and teas from different countries. Its restaurant also includes a wide variety of options with dishes ranging from the classic Madrilenian-style ‘callos’ (tripe) to other more sophisticated dishes like steak tartar in Armagnac sauce.
