This establishment was opened in 1910 as a cake shop, although in 1892 the Reñé family had already set up their chocolate factory, La Suiza-Reñé, in it.
The shop was redecorated by Enric Llardent using mainly two materials: marble for the skirting of the shop window and Cuban mahogany for all the joinery. In the interior he adapted the large display cabinets, also with wooden joinery, and the plaster decoration of the ceiling. In 2003, the establishment became a café-restaurant.
