FIKA is a social institution in Sweden. It means having a break, most often a coffeebreak, with one's colleagues, friends, date, or family. The word has quite ambiguous connotations and can mean anything from taking a break from work or other activities, to going on a date. This practice of taking a break, typically with a cinnamon roll or some biscuits, or sometimes a smörgås or a fruit, is central to Swedish life. One Fika can take place in a coffee shop or pastry shop, at work, outdoors or at home.
