"fika" is a Swedish word, that can be used both as a verb and as a noun. to fika means to have something to drink (usually coffee or tea) and something to eat with it (most often something sweet, such as a cake or biscuit). typical situations:
- "we've worked all morning - let's go get a fika" (taking a break from work)
- "if you come by saturday afternoon we'll fika" (meeting up with friends or family)
- "maybe you'd like to get a fika with me someday?" (a subtle way to ask someone out on a date...)
you don't have fika instead of breakfast, lunch or dinner - it's something you have between main meals.
we're dedicating the rest of the week to fika!
