What's fika?

Fika is a Swedish word that translates as ‘taking a break for coffee and a bite to eat’. But really it’s much more than that. It’s a moment to relax, to catch up with your family and to laugh with your friends. It’s making up for lost time, or part of your daily ritual. A cosy escape, or a refreshing pause. It’s the time between meals, the place between destinations. There’s always time for Fika.

Our kitchen is your kitchen, so make yourself at home.



Hej hej! We’re Linda, Diana and Sophie, the founders of Fika Swedish Kitchen.

We’ve been living in Sydney for over six years and have been great friends for a long time. Whenever we used to catch up, topics of conversations often related to the delicious foods and beautiful things we missed about Sweden. Swedes love coffee and will find any excuse to catch up for a 'fika' with a friend. We decided it was time to bring all the best things about Swedish culture together with modern Aussie café culture.

And so our first adventure, Fika Swedish Kitchen, came to reality, 'Bringing the spirit of Scandinavian culture to the heart of Sydney'.

Linda brings with her more than 12 years of crazy hospitality experience while Diana and Sophie work in the design industry and have an eye for all things Scandinavian. 

We're long time foodies, passionate about the thriving Australian restaurant scene, and can't wait to give you a taste of the nordic lands.

The list has been updated many times since then and is now including more current names. At Fika Swedish Kitchen we've decided to celebrate this tradition by giving away a free coffee on your name day, so keep an eye out for your day.
