What is Fika?

When you travel to Stockholm you’re going to see the word ‘Fika’ pasted on coffee shops and cafes all around the city, but what does it mean? Fika, is slang for coffee break. The act of Fika generally includes a cup of coffee, possibly conversation and a snack; which includes sandwiches or pastries. You may might not believe this, but Sweden is ranked 3rd in coffee consumption per capita. Coffee choices can be found virtually anywhere around the city, so after a bit of research, I settled on Fabrique Stenugnsbageri, as my first place to have Fika. This place has excellent pastries. I would recommend ordering the cinnamon bun and latte for your first go.
