On the hunt for a place with cool decor, a quirky idea and a unique food menu? Step forward Scandi-inspired cafe, Fika in Oakham.
Located on Mill Street in Oakham, Rutland, the word Fika is a Swedish one that means ‘to have a break’ (which usually involves coffee and eating) and it’s a big part of Swedish culture.
Converting what was once a warehouse/storage space for fashion and homeware mecca store Cavells next door, it’s still got some of those industrial elements including a corrugated roof but it all works wonderfully well. They’ve managed to squeeze in a little, private alfresco area out the front making it even more cosy.
Decor is everything you’d expect from a Scandi-inspired eatery – white walls, clean lines, silver birch branches hanging across the ceiling, (nice touch) decluttered spaces but also colour and greenery here so it doesn’t feel too stark or minimalistic. From delicious doughnuts to kanelbullar (Swedish cinnamon buns to you and me) plus tasty lunch, brunch and more inspired from all four corners of the world.
