Located directly on the Strand at the corner of Savoy Court, this beautiful shop is The Savoy's take-away, gourmet counter. Open seven days a week, the menu at Melba is created by our fabulous executive pastry chef, Ludwig Hely. You will find a selection of sweet and savoury pastries, British sandwich classics, hot and cold beverages to take away, along with Savoy gift items and an extensive selection of a new hotel signature item... éclairs.
Melba at The Savoy is named in honour of two greats: in the late 1800s, one Savoy executive chef was so enchanted by Savoy guest and Australian operatic soprano, Dame Nellie Melba, that he created menu items which have become cherished the world-over. Extolled for over 100 years both in the public and industry eye, Auguste Escoffier created both Peach Melba and Melba toast for the singer.
The gourmet counter is a striking and elegant juxtaposition to the existing shops on the Strand, and complement to The Savoy’s existing collection of food and beverage outlets. Melba’s interior design clearly defined by The Savoy’s restoration and incorporates the same striking black and white marble flooring, with hand-carved woodwork interiors and grey Italian marble counter tops.
