Fika on Brix
Slick, modern fit-out. Specialty coffee focus. On-trend menu. Fika on Brix wouldn’t look out of place in any inner-city precinct, which makes its suburban location – inside the Mills Park Recreation Centre in Beckenham, complete with playground and pet-friendly alfresco area – all the more surprising.
The cafe draws upon the Swedish coffee-break tradition of fika for both its name and philosophy. In Sweden, fika isn’t just about sitting down for a cuppa; it’s a moment to slow down and appreciate the good things in life.
Beans are supplied by local roaster Grand Central and the specialty coffee set-up features different single-origin batch brews alongside the usual espresso-based offerings.
The menu consists of cafe classics and on-trend Asian mash-ups. So bacon and eggs and apple and raspberry Bircher muesli are offered alongside bulgogi beef hash and chicken katsu bao. A good kids menu and range of cakes and pastries rounds off the selection.
