fika toronto cereal interior

Fika is a Swedish word that means to have a coffee break, the perfect name for this cute cafe located in Toronto. FIKA Café provides a cozy place for people to come and break away from the ordinary with typical Scandinavian treats, coffees and teas. Because in Scandinavia you take your time with the coffee, and if you want to have a coffee break the Scandi way then pastries are a must.

These lovely photos are from the Cereal website, and they show a light space full of character that looks inviting and cozy in that true nordic style. The logo is the dala horse, which was a popular toy for children in the old days but in modern times has become a famous symbol of Sweden and it’s culture.

If you live nearby you should stop by and have a fika with friends here, I know I would!

Ingrid wants her blog to represent the feeling of coziness and calm with a Nordic simplistic, minimalistic style. The blog is intended to share her knowledge and love for Scandinavia; touching upon everything from interiors, design, lifestyle, travel to hygge. A place where you can get inspired to find that Scandinavian feeling yourself, no matter where in the world you are.

    Looks really lovely! There’s actually a cafe called Fika here in London too but I thinks they’re temporarily closed due to some redecoration works so I haven’t had a chance to check it yet.

      Hi Mal, yes I know Fika in London – I used to love going there when I lived in London! If you haven’t tried it make sure you do when its open again, but also check out Nordic Bakery for the BEST cinnamon buns and Scandinavian Kitchen too ????
