On this weekend’s visit to San Diego, once again I crossed the border into Baja, and had the opportunity to try one more coffee shop. This time it was Fika Café & Deli, located very close to the U.S.A. border.
Fika is a great place to take a coffee break. The staff is very friendly, likeable and makes you feel like you have arrived home. I can’t praise their excellent customer service more highly. The shop is comfortably furnished, and it is one of those places that gives you such comfort that you don’t wat to leave, we ordered various coffee drinks prepared with coffee beans from Veracruz, and everything was great. This was my second time drinking coffee from Veracruz, México, exceptional and interesting flavor, pleasing aroma, balanced acidity, smooth, and not bitter at all.
Fika is family owned and run, it has beautiful patio seating, and the shop is absolutely spotless. We spent a couple of hours there just talking and drinking coffee.
What’s the meaning of the word Fika?
Originally used as a Swedish verb meaning “to go out for coffee,” the word Fika can also be used as a noun (“coffee break”). It is standard in Sweden to invite friends to fika every few hours during the work day.
A great café, nestled in a nice neighborhood, with something for everyone.
Thanks Fika for the fabulous hospitality, the great coffee, and your amazing customer service.
