For Fika Sake

7 Keith St, Glasgow G11 6QQ, UK

Editor's Review

Where some cafés try to push back on those who like to use them as workspaces, others gladly lean into that version of themselves. For Fika Sake in Glasgow’s West End is an example of the latter, a God-send for students and freelancers alike.

This Swedish inspired spot - Fika being a Swedish concept meaning, essentially, to have coffee, but also often a pastry - feels like the office of a hipster start-up. In a good way, mind. The white stone walls are adorned with posters, quotes, and a large bespoke mural on the upstairs mezzanine. There are couches and quiet spots as well as large tables and plenty of plug-sockets. It tries to cater for everyone, and manages to do so pretty well.

Not that this café should be reserved for study and work alone. Life drawing classes, yoga classes, open mics, potluck dinners - the space is there, and they use it to reach out to a lot of different areas. It helps make this café a warm, welcoming place, well worth checking out.
