is considered a social institution in Sweden; it means having a break, most often a coffee break, with one’s colleagues, friends, date or family. The word fika
can be used as both verb and a noun. You can fika at work by taking a “coffee break”, fika
with someone like a “coffee date”, or just drink a cup of coffee, tea or other non-alcoholic beverage. A “fika”
almost always includes something to eat, such as biscuits, cakes and even sweets, accompanied with the drink. This practice of taking a break, often with a cinnamon roll or some biscuits, cookies, or a fruit on the side, is central to Swedish life.
In some preschools/kindergartens the foundation of fika
is laid. There are normal fruit breaks [fruktstund] for kids, but also enhanced fruit break
[förstärkt frukt] which is code for fika
, maybe cocoa and sandwich instead of the fruit. ;-)
