For readers who wonder how the origins of the name, Fika, I paraphrased the following from their website (which apparently was lifted from Wikipedia).
Fika is a word that literally means “taking a break from work” as in the words, fikapaus (“fika pause”) or fikarast (“fika break”). The shorter word fika, may equally mean having coffee with a friend at a cafe.

What an apt name for this quaint Swedish bistro at the corner of Arab and Victoria streets. It does look like a place where one would meet up with a friend for coffee and light bites!
P.s. reservations are highly recommended since the cafe barely sits no more than, seemingly, 20 people each service. We were most lucky to have been able to secure the last available table during Friday lunch, albeit not having made any prior reservations!
