Quinte West, ON:  After a year in the making the Arsenault family and their awesome team have finally opened the doors to The ArtiZen Café located at 14 A Wellington St. in Frankford, Ontario. Nestled in this friendly village, it is a one of a kind Café/Artisan Gift Studio designed and decorated to escape the stresses of everyday life, laugh with friends, family and coworkers, listen to live music - or vinyl, shop for handmade unique gifts, or to just relax solo, enjoy comfort food, a beverage and a good book.

Shawna and Derek Arsenault, well-known entrepreneurs in the Quinte Area, own the Café, their other businesses include Inner Peace Spa & Wellness Studio in Frankford and Living Energy Fitness & Wellness Studio in Belleville.   “The cafe completes our mission to provide overall wellness to our community, clients, family and friends through relaxation, rehabilitation, fitness and health, stress management, nutrition and overall wellbeing,” said Shawna Arsenault.  “No matter what door you enter whether it be the Spa, the Studio or the Cafe you will always receive friendly professional connections, and the freedom to be your authentic self in a safe, comfortable non-judgmental environment.”

The Café has a unique rustic and relaxing atmosphere for the community to indulge in high quality gourmet coffee, organic tea, smoothies and locally sourced ingredients for homemade, healthy and tasty food. Offering some vegan and gluten friendly options there is bound to be something for everyone.  The ArtiZen also provides a laid back cozy environment for private functions, workshops and seminars, plus a home for local artists to display and sell their handcrafted artwork along with the opportunity for artists, musicians, comedians, writers, photographers etc... to share their talents with an audience. The Café has free WIFI and is open Monday to Friday from 6:30am to 2pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30am to 2pm.  To find out more you can check them out on Facebook.

The ArtiZen Café is a true family business and being able to involve their daughters, Jade & Amber Arsenault in this venture has been a blessing for Shawna and Derek.  They would like to invite everyone to join them for their Grand Opening Shenanigans on Saturday October 28th from 8:00am to 2pm for live music, friendship, laughs, delicious food, bevies and an atmosphere that will keep you coming back over and over again!
