Fika brings a taste of Sweden to Canada. Recently opened in Toronto’s Kensington Market neighborhood, this pastel colored gem of a cafe is named after the beloved Swedish practice of fikaa communal coffee break accompanied by a sweet treat. Already known for their signature iced coffee, which features house-made cardamom syrup and fresh mint, Fika offers beautifully crafted espresso-based beverages in addition to a range of baked goods and open faced sandwiches. The Scandinavian-inspired space is whimsically minimalist, accented by tiny vases filled with fresh flowers. The cafe’s mascot, a Swedish pony, can be found throughout the decor. In warm weather the gorgeous back patio opens, a backyard wonderland complete with a hammock in one corner. -Ashley Churchill
