Fika Fika Cafe is one of my favorite coffee shop in Taipei, besides their coffee. I like their Nothern European style design a lot.
北歐國家普遍日短夜長，北歐人待在室內和家的時間比較長，所以他們蠻注重室內設計。北歐風設計特色是簡潔直接，跟你們說來自瑞典Ikea的家具就是了。Fika Fika Cafe用上大量的白色牆面與木質傢品。Fika是瑞典文，是”一起喝咖啡的休憩時間”的意思。老闆曾以其咖啡豆到北歐參加世界咖啡烘焙大賽，並在espresso 組拿了冠軍。
Simple and cozy interior design, using white walls and wooden furniture. “Fika” means “coffee leisure break” in Swedish. The owner of the shop won a coffe world champion “espresso” group in North Europe before.
We ate before coming, so we didn’t try their quiche and bagel. My friend had their latte.
I recommend their brown sugar latte. Above the coffee it has a thin layer of brown sugar caramel, adequate sweetness for me. If you think the sweetness is not enough you can add the brown sugar on the spoon.
Raspberry and matcha pound cake. I didn’t enjoy this because it’s a bit too dry. A staff came to us and asked if we like it or not, I told her it’s not moist enough. And I couldn’t taste the matcha flavor.
Lemon pound cake. The staff gave us this cake after we told her the previous one is not good enough. This pound cake is much better. Flavorful and moist, and what we appreciate is the attitude and service of Fika Fika’s staffs 🙂
They have coffee beans and snacks to buy as a souvenir. My friend told me that they have improved their pound cakes, he likes the matcha one a lot. Will visit again next time.
