Fika is the Swedish tradition of taking a break with friends, family or colleagues to have coffee accompanied by baked goods, cookies or cake. I love the idea of taking a few minutes out of the day to pause and enjoy a little moment of camaraderie... not to mention a hot coffee and sweet treat. Forget bringing back cocktail hour... I'm all about fika.
