swedish fika restaurantThe Swedes know how to enjoy their coffee breaks (called ‘fika’) and from this Wednesday to Friday (12.30-2.30pm), Soho Square will be transformed into a fika parlor serving the best in coffee and cake. The free, bookable pop-up fika parlour and a first-come-first-served picnic feature – in organiser Visit Sweden’s words – ‘traditionally dressed Swedish old ladies’ serving guests a classic set of coffee (courtesy of Swedish roasters Löfbergs Lila) and 7 types of cookies from famed Swedish chocolatier and patissier Jan Hedh. An art installation by Emma Karp Lundström, inspired by the apple harvests of southern Sweden (and featuring real apples from Skåne), completes the Nordic picture.

For info, see Fika Square listing; to book a table at the Fika pop-up parlour, email reservations@fikasquare.co.uk.
