Café FIKA

FIKA, the new café at the Institut Suédois, officially opens on 2 September! While we wait for all the crates to be emptied, the pictures to be hung on the walls and the menus printed, you can enjoy sampling Swedish specialities in June and all summer long!

For over ten years, Caroline and Damien have been catering for cultural and festive events, collaborating in particular with Swedish chefs. They became more and more curious about Sweden, its gastronomy and its lifestyle, and travelled extensively in the country in 2021.

“From fika to fika* and from island to island, we completely fell in love with Sweden! The country embodies what makes our job so fascinating: the power to encapsulate a country and its culture in a mouthful of food, the importance of living things, a special history, and a world apart. Rooted in the sea and the forest, Swedish cuisine wowed our Parisian taste buds!”

When they came back from their trip, they presented the Café FIKA project to their team, who enthusiastically agreed to follow them in this venture: a piece of Sweden in the middle of Paris. Together they will present classic Swedish cuisine and baking, interpreted in their own way with generosity, inventiveness and passion.

Opening times:

  • Wednesday – Sunday / 10:00 – 18:00
  • Afterwork until 9 pm on Thursdays and Fridays!
  • Summer vacation: 01.08.2022 – 23.08.2022

*a fika is a light, friendly morning or afternoon snack.
