We had surveyed this Café/Shop before visiting Cairns, and called in there today. Located in the heart of the city with ample street parking available.

This is a small and friendly Café. Lovely staff, great little menu and fantastic coffee.
The shop has a variety of packaged and frozen foodstuffs from both Sweden and also The Netherlands.

We ordered the daily special which was a vegetarian Lasagne, Beef Croquettes in a roll, Roast Beef Salad and a Roast Beef Panini Filtered Coffee and Yoghurt based Smoothies.
Everything was well prepared and delicious and priced very reasonably.
I also picked up a can of Swedish Cod Roe which I have not had for more than 50 years.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.I both commend and recommend this business and it is a treat for both locals and visitors.

They also offer free Wi-Fi, and have both inside and outside tables.

I had the Dutch Croquette ... the croquette is delicious, the bread is crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside.

Just rocked up one day while looking for a place to have a cup of coffee with some eggs on rye toast and do some remote work on my laptop. The girls were really nice and helpful and even let me stay for extra 10 mins after closing so that I could finish what I was working on :) Also, you can find lots of yummy Swedish treats there (not "lutefisk" though, no, hehe). Definitely, come and check out this joint!

I really like Cafe Fika. The atmosphere is very nice both inside and outside. The food is delicious and their coffees are great too. I also love to buy their licorice! It reminds me of time spent in Germany and Denmark. The woman who runs the cafe is also very sweet.
