Situated in the heart of Marais in France, the lovely FIKA café offers you a break from hectic big-city life in true Scandinavian style. A delicious taste of Sweden in Paris.
In Sweden, fika is traditionally a break for food, which can be repeated several times a day. In the past, it punctuated the long days of work in the fields, because the short duration of the summer imposed great productivity and did not allow for time to stop and sit down to eat.
The Scandinavian FIKA café in Paris offers you a pause throughout the day in this Swedish manner: pastries and hot drinks in the morning, salads and sandwiches for a light lunch, gourmet breaks for snacks or aperitifs at the end of the day.
With a great selection of fresh seasonal products, organic vegetables and fruits, FIKA offers artisanal products that are rooted in the very particular terroir of Sörmland, a veritable garden of Eden that nourishes Stockholm where orchards are scattered, vegetable gardens and castles on the edge of limpid lakes. On the menu, you can find everything from open-faced sandwiches on rye bread, meatballs and potato salads to cinnamon buns and princess cakes – all typical and much-loved Scandinavian food.
The FIKA café is located at the Swedish Institute and has been open for a bit over a year. A great place for those who need a little piece of Scandinavia while living in France. Stop by this little hidden gem for a pause to taste their freshly prepared Swedish specialities and relax in a cozy Nordic setting.
