In Sweden, a fika is a twice-daily coffee break, traditionally taken at ten and three. Lars Akerlund, co-owner of Fika espresso bar and café in midtown, hopes to institute the ritual here with beans he imports from Löfbergs Lila, a century-old roaster in Karlstad. But even the excessively caffeinated Swedes do not live by coffee alone—hence the Swedish meatball sandwich, the gravlax salad, and the savory "sandwich cake" torte, all courtesy of chef-partner David Johansson, who used to cook at the Swedish consulate. And what's a fika without something sweet? That's where the cookies and cinnamon buns come in, and chocolate bonbons flavored with sweet potato and cinnamon.


Also for sale: The imported Löfbergs Lila coffee beans, Swedish sundries, and packs of the housemade pastries including raspberry tartes and "Dream" cookies.
