Food Scene
Fika Coffee House is located on Mainstreet in the heart of Old Town Parker, Colorado, where we are introducing the Swedish custom of “fika” to the Centennial State. Fika is a Swedish verb which, loosely translated, means “to meet over coffee.” In keeping with this tradition we offer a comfortable place to meet with friends over a fresh cup of the best coffee you’ve ever tasted.
