Home » Food » Coffee Shop Review: Fika

Two words come to mind on a Sunday morning. Coffee and More Coffee!

For some reason, I associate Sundays as a great day to discover a new coffee shop. So off I went to Kensington Market to check out Fika.  This new coffee shop which opened up recently is named for a Swedish verb which means “To go out for coffee”. I also learned (from their beautiful website) that it’s also a noun, as in “coffee break”.  Therefore the whole vibe is kinda “Swedish” without looking like IKEA at all. Infact, I loved the interior which has soothing paint colours and natural blonde trim plus lots of natural light and exposed brick walls.

Here’s what the outside looked like:

I ordered a delicious cappuccino and was a happy camper.

fika - coffee


My friend also ordered a cappuccino, as well as this avocado sandwich which was beyond good. Nothing about this sandwich was ordinary! Clearly someone knows what they are doing in the kitchen.

fika - sandwich

See this small detail? Made me smile.

fika - happy

Fika has Wifi which means that I will be returning so I can work there one day as a “coffice”. For more information about the world of cofficers please check my friends’ (@sackman66)  blog who wrote about this subject recently!
