In Sweden, “Fika” means to have a break with a friend, sitting down with a coffee and a cake or a cinnamon bun. Fika Bakery is the only Swedish bakery in Israel, probably in the whole Middle East – opened in 2017 by a Swede, of course.
Besides their great coffee, they also offer very typical Swedish cakes and buns. I really love their Princess Cake: green marzipan outside, inside cream, jam and sponge cake. They even made a rainbow-coloured version for the Gay Parade Day. My boyfriend claims the best one is the “Mazarin” – a Swedish almond tart. Their classic “Kanelbullar”, or cinnamon buns, is always good with a morning coffee!
They have three branches – the one in Tushiya 6, Montefiore Neighbourhood is their first, the others are on Dizzengoff 267 and on the Shuk at the Tel Aviv Port (Namal) – only the one on Dizzengoff has any places to sit.
