Fika: Take a Swedish coffee break

The Swedes have a wonderful tradition called “fika“, which is their version of a coffee break. There are any number of chic and cozy cafés in downtown Stockholm, but this time we went to a place which will delight any ladies visiting the “Capital of Scandinavia”.

Cupcakes STHLM is a tiny franchise of only two shops, but already cater to many large and small businesses and events. A fika here can offer you a wide selection of daily made cupcakes, delicious ordermade ice cream or sorbet and excellent coffee to match them both. However, perhaps the greatest highlight is their “petit”-size cupcakes, which you can buy by the dozens. Not only can you experience the many colors and flavours at once – you can also bring them home in the cutest boxes imaginable. Perfect place to sit down on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or simply swing by to pick up a treat to enjoy later.

The one we visited was on St.Eriks Plan, just a minute’s walk away from the metro, but there is also a store located inside the mall Skrapan in the middle of Södermalm, south of city center.
