In a sea of green sirens slinging bitter, burnt tasting coffee, the FIKA coffee shop on mainstreet in Parker is a sight for sore eyes. Taking its name from a Swedish verb roughly meaning to meet over coffee, Fika insists on maintaining an inviting, authentic atmosphere to join friends over a hot cup of joe.
Boasting a wide menu that includes fair trade Kaladi coffee, various hot and cold items, as well as freshly made local pastries, the experience you have at this little spot is a welcome relief from the monotonous, sterile environments that have come to dominate the coffee shop world. (Starshmucks, I am looking at you)
The coffee shop itself is a bit of a hobbit hole – rustic wooden siding provides the backdrop to a mix of old chairs and victorian recliners. Local art is displayed for sale on the walls, and an old acoustic guitar lingers for the musically inclined to pluck away at. It’s whimsical, some would even say inefficient, but it’s cozy and has a hell of a lot of character.
I actually do a lot of my blogging for this website nestled into one of the many nooks Fika provides – it’s a great atmosphere to enjoy yourself (while getting wired on caffeine). Plenty of good people watching to be had here as well, with all manner of patrons sharing the space. I am pretty plain Jane when it comes to my order, I usually get “the coffee for here” which is served in a ceramic mug (with unlimited refills!) for a mere $2.00. Other favorites in my heart include the cinnamon rolls and hot chai tea. Overall, Fika is a great place to meet family, friends or clients to have an genuine and enjoyable conversation over coffee. Highly recommended!
Fika has also opened a new location in Idylewilde in southern Parker. I will make sure to do a review of this location in the near future!
