"Fika" is a Swedish verb which translates to "take a coffee break", usually accompanied by something sweet and delicious.
I spent a summer in Malmo and Stockholm when I was 13 and my fondest memories are the meals, snacks and sweets that are miraculously light and richly decadent. The Swedish culinary sense of proportion is a refined visual experience full of casual exchange and good cheer.
With locations on lower Park Avenue, the financial district, 58th & 29th Streets, I can "fika" daily on New York City turf until my flight is booked for Stockholm.
