Swedish "fika"

In Sweden "fika" means "coffee break", often with pastries, although coffee can be substituted with tea, or even juice for children.

Fika is a social institution in Sweden and the practice of taking a break with a beverage and a snack is widely accepted as central to Swedish life.
As a common mid-morning and mid-afternoon practice at workplaces in Sweden, fika may also function partially as an informal meeting between co-workers and management people.
