A traditional gastronomic spot that opened its doors in 1879 and soon became a social and political meeting point in the capital. Because of its location close to the civic center, it has always been a place frequented by politicians and aristocratic gentlemen of yesteryear.

Known for its refined atmosphere and for giving rise to the famous Barros Luco sandwich in honor of the President of Chile of 1910, Ramón Barros Luco, who would visit the premises ordering an unusual combination of grilled meat and cheese that was soon to catch on throughout the country.

Confitería Torres tearoom takes up the ground floor of the building known as Palacio Iñiguez, characterized by its excellent architecture and a second location is  in the La Moneda Cultural Center.
