Fika Cafe is a Swedish inspired coffee spot in the Kensington Avenue owned by husband and wife Nikki Leigh McKean and Victor Barry. The idea in the making of Fika Cafe is through the brainwave of Nikki, who studied in Sweden for a year, and had a vision of, “bringing the culture of ceremonious break-taking to Canada.” They aim to have a spot for people to grab a quick bite and escape for a few minutes.
The style of the space is designed by Sarah Callanan, which furnishes a clean and bright ambiance. The combination of Caesarstone tables with a mixture of white, grays, and hues of blue leave the cafe uncluttered. A collection of vintage teacups can be found behind the bar those teacups were used from Nikki and Victor’s wedding, and some small accents around that still give a polished vibe of the cafe.

They also serve sandwiches and sweet treats. A recommendation from visitors is to try the mortadella sandwich, “a fat stack of the thinly-sliced meat is panini-pressed between two slices of Splendido’s potato bread.” They also have smoked salmon which is served open-face as a smorgasbord, layered with pickled red onions, radishes, and pickled cucumbers.
Their sweet treats are amazing the chocolate tarts are heavenly, it tastes like a snack-pack with a perfect buttery crust perfect pair to brewed coffee.

And you should not miss their jumbo-sized salted caramel macaroon it is to die for.
