The origin of this Confiteria goes back to 1879. A family of the santiaguina aristocracy had a butler, Jose Domingo Torres, famous for his good hand to prepare mistelas, alfajores, pheasants, civet and other delicacies. So this famous cook was requested on loan by other owners of family friendly houses.

This situation became so extreme that the boss, bored with almost no services, decided to install his own business. The house that the Torres confectionery occupies was the Íniguez palace, built by the architects Alberto Cruz Montt and Ricardo Larrain Bravo for the family of Antonio Íniguez Larraín.

Regular customer of this confectionery was President Arturo Alessandri Palma. He ordered his car to stop and went inside to drink a cane of chicha. For the celebrations of the Centennial of Independence in 1910, the honor Vermouth was served here to the diplomatic corps.
