Brunch at Fika Cafe

12 months ago

Hey Luuuxers,

My friends and I decided to spend a Saturday strolling around downtown Toronto with a plan to have some brunch and maybe do some shopping. So we decided to go to Kensington Market which is more a neighbourhood than a market, but has a bunch of stands, store and restaurants when you go strolling through.

We ended up stopping to eat at a place called Fika. Fika is Swedish term loosely meaning to `take a break` or to have some coffee, often with a small bite to eat. I actually know this since I had some friends visit from Sweden last year and we were exploring Kensington when we walked by this place. We didn`t end up going in, but they laughed when they saw the name and explained the concept to me.

So based on the concept of Fika, they don`t really have big plates but rather mostly pastries and combo plates like the one I got. This was called the smorgasbord, and it has little bites of food so a few potatoes, a small salad, some avocado and tomato, a slice of toast, a wedge of brie and some smoked salmon with cucumbers and some sort of pickled vegetable. All the food was delicious, and fresh but at the same time not too heavy. And I love how pretty the presentation is - it looks like it could be a painting!

It reminds me of a breakfast or brunch I would make myself with whatever I find in the fridge. :)

So if I am ever in the area and need a small bite to eat, I know this will be a good option!
