I met a friend for lunch, and happened (by sheer coincidence) to be standing waiting outside Cafe Fika, watching the beautifully presented lunch plates being delivered to diners. When my friend arrived, "Here" seemed the obvious answer to the "where will we go?" question! On initial inquiry, we were greeted with enthusiasm by the owner, who explained the Swedish food, and gave us a menu to look at.
Lunch choices were essentially breads with fillings or toppings, and salads, but with a delightful difference from the usual cafe offerings. We received friendly, helpful advice when ordering - explanations of items, suggestions, and even a look (and smell!) of the recommended tea leaves. Food was freshly prepared, attractively presented, and very tasty. Prices were good - I felt we had excellent value for money. There was no pressure to leave once we had finished; we felt welcome to finish our conversation.
We enjoyed it so much, we returned the following day for morning coffee. Again, the service was welcoming. Sadly, no one was hungry enough to try the sweets - maybe next visit to Cairns.
