The word “fika” is not translatable into English, but it basically means “drinking coffee and having something small to eat.” The act of "fika" is a Swedish institution and most Swedes will "fika" everyday, usually on a break from work in the early afternoon. It’s a time to unwind, relax, and enjoy a cup of coffee and perhaps a "kannelbulle", i.e a cinnamon roll, with friends. "Fika" is not meant to be rushed and if a Swede asks you to "fika", you must accept. There is ALWAYS time for "fika" and "fika" is one of the best parts of being in Karlskrona and Sweden!
