A good cup of coffee paired with dessert, now that's a coffee break. And at Fika Cafe, you get all that. And more.
Sometimes all you need is a good coffee break. Named after the Swedish word for "coffee break," Fika Cafe offers premium coffee blends and an extensive selection of desserts for that perfect coffee break. Located at the Capitol Greenstreet Mall, you also get an awesome view of the golf course. Coffee, dessert and a view...just can't get better than that.
Swedish chef Mats Loo and partner Dennis Nakpil, the man behind Dencio's (check out my previous post on Dencio's Capitol Greenstreet here at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2013/09/lunch-with-view-at-dencios-capitol.html), collaborate for their own take on coffee break, combining premium coffee and freshly baked dessert for that perfect coffee break experience. Fika Cafe also provides a real working environment for culinary students from the First Gourmet Academy, also located in Capitol Greenstreet. And on one weekend afternoon, we had a "fika" experience at Fika Cafe, sampling the wide selection of coffee and desserts. Start with Fika Cafe's Cappuccino (P 95), a rich full flavored and creamy brew.
If you're looking for something a bit sweeter, go for Fika Cafe's Cafe Mocha (P 110). The aroma of freshly brewed coffee fills the interiors of Fika Cafe as your cup is prepared. And a table by the floor to ceiling windows is the perfect spot for your coffee break.
To complete your "fika" experience, pair your coffee with any of Fika Cafe's signature desserts. Fika's Chocolate Mousse Cake (P 90) is always a great choice with your coffee. A personal favorite, a slice of Fika Cafe's Chocolate Mousse Cake is reason enough for a coffee break.
Rich layers of chocolate and moist chocolate cake topped with even more chocolate, a chocoholic's dream on a plate. the richness of the cake is perfectly complemented by Fika Cafe's specialty brews. Seriously good.
Other signature desserts at Fika Cafe include the Blueberry Cheesecake (P 85), an indulgent and creamy dessert not only topped with blueberries but incorporated in the cheesecake as well.
Similar to the Blueberry Chesecake, Fika Cafe's Mango Cheesecake (P 85) also features bits of sweet mangoes in the cheesecake in addition to the fruit topping.
Then, there's the Butter Rhum Cake (P 70), a moist cake bursting with rich butter and rhum flavors. Not too sweet, perfect with a Cappuccino or Cafe Mocha.
Fika Cafe's Creme Puff (P 55), a rich blend of cream between layers of buttery pastry. An indulgent dessert, this one hits the spot as well.
Cookies? Fika Cafe's got you covered. Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip and Milk Chocolate Cookies (P 45 each) are baked fresh every day. Sweet and chewy, Fika Cafe's cookies are also great for take-out.
And finally, Fika Cafe's Carrot Cake (P 65), a moist cake that's not too sweet. Great coffee, great desserts. Fika Cafe has it all. Plus a cool view of the golf course...
If you find yourself in this part of the metro, swing by Fika Cafe for a unique coffee break experience. Special thanks to partners Dennis Nakpil and Mats Loo for an awesome coffee break at Fika.
Fika is located at ground floor of Capitol Greenstreet, Capitol Hills Drive, Old Balara, Quezon City.
