You are now probably sitting there and asking yourself: What the hell is a FIKA?! (To all the Italians: we know what it means in your language, but sooner or later you will start using the word fika without giggling or blinking an eye!)
Before you start thinking it’s some strange Swedish fish with 3 eyes, lemme stop you right there.
Fika is a concept in Sweden. Fika is life. Fika is when you meet up with one or more people over a coffee, tea, or some other beverage of your choosing, usually accompanied by a cinnamon bun, or some other delicious treat of your choosing. Fika is used when Swedes want to bond with a new person. It can even be used as a date option!
