The word “fika” which essentially means grabbing a cup of coffee and a lil something sweet (usually a kanelbullar) with friends, collegues, etc. is an attitude that’s heavily engrained in Swedish culture.
The country is filled with bakeries and cafe’s everywhere, serving the most delicious selection of freshly baked treats, the most common being their famous cinnamon/cardamom rolls. Fabrique, one of the most popular bakery chains in the country, was founded 11 years ago in Stockholm by couple Charlotta and David Zetterström. After securing its reputation as the best place to go for a classic kanelbullar/kardemummabullar (cinnamon/cardamom rolls), Fabrique expanded its brand to London where they have a total of five locations around the city.
After the recent openings of famous international bakeries in NYC such as Australia’s Bourke Street Bakery and Denmark’s Ole & Steen, Fabrique decided to jump on the bandwagon and open up their very first U.S. outpost! Situated in the Meatpacking District, the bakery does the most it can given the limited space, but it’s definitely more of a grab ‘n’ go type of place! Other than the Swedish buns, you’ll find a range of other carb-filled goodies like croissants, sourdough/rye bread and more.
