Fika in the garden
Fika is a social institution in Sweden and never more so than in the summer. Fika is a a reason to set aside a moment for quality time and it is a tradition observed frequently, preferably several times a day. Accompanying sweets are crucial. Cinnamon buns, cakes, cookies, even open-faced sandwiches will do. It comes as no surprise that Swedes are among the top consumers of coffee and sweets in the world.
