The Swedish social gathering of drinking coffee and eating pastries such as cookies, cake, and the like. It is not the drinking of coffee that is important, but the social aspect. This is the equivalent of meeting friends for coffee at a coffee shop, but often it takes place at homes - in kitchens or gardens depending on the season. Often times, there will be one or more Fika break(s) during the work day where co-workers can relax, have coffee, and socialize before going back to working on their individual tasks.
