What is Fika?
Fika is a social institution in Sweden. It involved taking a pause from an activity for a drink of coffee, or any other drink with friends, family or acquaintances. This tradition of a coffee break with any snack is central in Swedish culture, with Swedes being on of the world’s largest coffee consumers.
A Fika can take place in a café or pastry shop, at work, outdoors or at home. Many Swedish workplaces have institutionalized this afternoon coffee, or Fika break, as not only a pause from work but also an informal meeting time.
