Fika means having a “coffee break” usually accompanied by something sweet, like cinnamon rolls. It’s probably one of my favourite words in Swedish especially as I usually don’t drink coffee and saying “let’s meet for coffee” never makes any sense for me.. Going for fika means going to a place you like with a person you enjoy spending time with, drinking something you feel like drinking, eating something sweet, and talking about anything.

It’s such a perfect word, especially at this time of the year. :)
