Fika Lounge is a place of Relaxation, Reading, Education and Drinking Coffee

When it comes to reading, people have different journeys.

Some want to be scared to their very core, some want to escape from the ins and outs of a normal day. 

Whether it be the story of a child being whisked away on a magical adventure, or very real truths that’s found in a biography.  For readers, books can be their escape into another world – something that takes them away from themselves and shows them the wonder of something much more alluring.

We offer that experience, and more importantly, a place for discussion. Reading a book, while fulfilling, can be a quiet experience. The best ways to share a book is to have a venue to talk about it with others, and that’s what we want to do. Not only share our love of the Fika lifestyle, but to provide each and every one of our readers a place where they can share their thoughts, moments, and enjoyments of books with others.

Bound To Serve

Fika is a way of life. A method of taking time out of a busy work day to enjoy a coffee and a nice bite to eat. Here at Fika Lounge, we’re a couple who love coffee and reading, and we want to extend our love of Fika towards you.

Our Story

The journey started for us when we took a break away from our hometown Kent in England, and discovered the Swedish way of Fika. It’s both a way of taking time out from work, and socialising with the people closest to you. Inspired by our love of coffee and touched by Swedish tradition, The Fika Lounge was born.

Book of the Month

Our latest book of the month is one that two thirds of the Fika Lounge/In Literature We Trust partnership have read and struggled to put down…

A vivid, touching and original debut, following the effects of an extraordinary catastrophe on very ordinary people. In the middle of a market in India, a man’s shadow disappears. As rolling twenty-four-hour news coverage tries to explain the event, more cases are discovered.

The phenomenon spreads like a plague as people learn the true cost of their lost part: their memories. Two years later, Ory and his wife Max have escaped ‘the Forgetting’ by hiding in an abandoned hotel deep in the woods in Virgina. They have settled into their new reality, until Max, too, loses her shadow.

Peng Shepherd has penned this novel beautifully, it is definitely recommended by the team and a review by Ben will come soon enough!
