About Our History

Elke Bynens and Frederik Gevers were born and raised in Belgium. After opening and operating a successful shoe store in Brussels, they were ready for their next adventure. They have always been passionate about chocolate and, of course, knew that no other chocolate compares to Belgian chocolate. Packing their bags and trekking across the world, they decided they wanted to bring the luxurious flavor and delight of Belgian chocolate to Southwest Florida.

They decided that Estero, FL was the perfect place to open their chocolate café, where they would also serve customers with coffee and other delicious treats. Elke and Frederik are excited to share the wonder of Belgian chocolate with the Southwest Florida community.

Our name is derived from the powerful Artanis the Elven Queen. We picked this name for several reasons.

Therefore, saying that our chocolate is “fit for a queen” is indeed a fact. Second, there is something undeniably magical about our authentic Belgian chocolate. Its charm and allure set it apart from other chocolate. That considered, it seemed fitting to name it after a mythical queen.
