Founded by Carlisle-Behles sculptors, dated 1866, it was made on fried dough sticks and imported into the Port of Joy along with six other cafes. With the disappearance of other cafes at the end of the 10th century, French sources have become the only survivors of that period to this day. It was originally in Customs Square, in front of the old customs building, and then it was transferred to Paradise Square until 1925. When it changed its position again, it would be transferred to the outer square of Parobe, which exists next to the public market of Happy Harbor, where there is now parabe Wharf.
