I was pretty excited when I discovered Fika Cafe, as Swedish food isn't very common in Singapore. On top of that, they're also certified Halal!

Fika Cafe does Swedish comfort food, including classics like the Swedish Meatballs With Lingonberry Jam. The meatballs are a mixture of beef and lamb, and while they aren't dry, they weren't very juicy either. I also thought that the meatballs could have been packed a little tighter, but overall, I liked the dish.

Other Swedish classics include Blueberry Soup (which is like Blueberry Juice), and Rosehip Soup (which has a citrus-y, almost orange like taste).

The desserts at Fika Cafe are really good, especially the Apple Crumble Pie With Ice Cream.

All the times I've visited, I found the service to be excellent. Staff will do their best to attend to your requests, answer questions on ingredients, or how best to consume a dish, and food is served relatively quickly even when crowded.

The Ambience at Fika Cafe is also stand-out. The first floor is your typical cozy cafe layout, but ask to be seated at the second floor. You'll think you just stepped into someone's home... There's a fake fireplace with comfy sofas, a bookshelf with ladder, and various other decorations and knick-knacks strewn about. Great for photo-taking.

If at all possible, do try to avoid sitting outdoors, as you'll be accosted by beggers. Having actually visited Fika Cafe on a daily basis for a week, I noticed that they actually come at fixed timings every day. For example, an elderly single lady will come, without fail, at 11.45am everyday. And around 2pm, a couple carrying a baby will come around. It's almost like they have some kind of schedule they keep among themselves.

If you're feeling generous and don't mind giving, then go ahead, but if you're adverse to this kind of thing, then it's best if you sit indoors instead.
