FIKA is a Swedish coffee shop that makes its own pastries in house. While I don’t drink coffee, I do eat pastries. And the pastries here are delicious. They are Swedish-inspired like almond marzipan pastry and Swedish cinnamon buns. I got the almond marzipan pastry, the graham cracker chocolate with hazelnut cream filling and a chocolate spice biscotti. They also have chocolate truffles in flavors like lingonberry. In addition to the selection of Swedish pastries, they also have chocolate chip cookies, brownies and croissants, and they serve food. While you can sit in FIKA, it is small and has the feel of a takeout coffee shop rather than a place to sit and linger. All of these treats were delicious, but my favorite was the firm yet chewy biscotti.
