Having not been to Fika before and being a Swede in London, my friends and I thought this would be a great stop after some strolling around Brick Lane. We had expected fika in the more "cakey" sense but after speaking to the waitress she informed me Fika is more of a restaurant (then why the name?!). My friend had a little banana fly in her icecream that came with the kladdkaka (sticky brownie cake) and only the ice cream was replaced and not the cake! I found the waitress extremely off-ish and the decor made no sense. Wasn't a traditional coffee house interior nor was it that of a restaurant. Just terribly confusing. Wouldn't recommend it and will probably not go there again.


If you are looking for a great coffee during the day when trawling around Brick Lane I would recommend. However, after going there for an evening meal recently I was really disappointed by the very average Swedish meatballs which were expensive and a very small portion for the price. Stick to the coffee!


Not great -- an odd atmosphere, uncomfortable chairs, and overpriced food. Teapigs tea is always a plus, though.


Far improved from the previous comments. Delicious food and a great Scandinavian atmosphere. Lovely staff-fully enjoyed my lunch!!
