Going for a fika is a very Swedish thing.  Though difficult to translate it basically means to meet up for a coffee and a piece of cake or pastry. Sweden enjoys a highly developed culture when it comes to baked goods, and everywhere in Stockholm you will find cafés and cake shops with atmosphere, character and quality, whether traditional or contemporary-creative.
The best Cinnamon buns – rated 1st out of 51 bakeries –  you find on Wienercafèet, Biblioteksgatan 6

Stockholm Guesthouse says: Happy Fika! :-)
