One of my new favorite Scandinavian concepts is: Fika! Fun to say, fun to do… it a Swedish term that essentially means “to have coffee and cake,” which just so happen to be two of the best things ever.
Fika is apparently a pretty daily thing in Sweden, so in order to fully experience the ~ culture ~ of Malmö, we had to fika too! 😉
We found this cafe, Lilla Kafferosteriet, highly recommended on Yelp.
The inside was adorable. Naturally.
And crowded. Always a good sign.
And here they are —
The glorious Swedish kanelbullar (or, cinnamon rolls) I’d heard so much about. They sell these babies at Ikea in the States, but those are frozen and reheated. These were MAGNIFICENT. Freshly baked and not too sweet.
I got a kanelbullar spiced with cardamom (!) and a perfectly frothy cappuccino.
With our treats in tow, we went off in search of a cozy corner.
The place was massive, with two levels and a lot of different rooms.
We took a spot by a window and got comfy.
Definitely the highlight of the Malmö trip. But then, when is sugar and coffee NOT the highlight?
