Fika: the Swedish verb that describes the act of going out to get a coffee and a treat with friends.
This café embodies the spirit of the word, offering a cozy and modern spot in which to participe in the Swedish pastime.
Relax and have a Swedish-inspired baked good, such as Darla horse cookie, a ginger snap, or even a cinnamon bun. There is usually even a flourless espresso brownie to allow gluten-intolerant folks to enjoy that fika feeling. The treats are made from scratch by the café, so they taste very fresh!
When it comes to the coffee, FIKA Coffee nails the high expectations the moniker sets for it. Their typical coffee offerings (espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, etc…) are not bitter, and are pleasant to drink. If you’re adventurous with your coffee choices, they also have a range of “unique” drinks such as their lavender white hot chocolate (delicious!) and their cardamon spiced latte.
When you’re in Kensington Market, you can’t go wrong with choosing FIKA as your destination for caffeination!
