New Covington Coffee House with Swedish Inspiration Sets Opening Date
The new coffeehouse on Martin Luther King Boulevard will soon open to the public.
FIKA (508 West MLK) will open on Saturday, April 18. The Swedish-inspired coffee house and music parlor had a soft opening on Saturday and The River City News popped in for a quick look.
The remodeled building will offer traditional coffee and espresso items as well as lunch (Swedish meatballs, soups, and wraps), and pastries (some familiar, and others of the Scandinavian variety).
Husband and wife owners Daniel and Angela Connor will develop hours for the business based on demand. Early mornings will be likely but because they will serve beer (from local brewers as well as one Scandinavian brew), they may go into the evening, too.
FIKA will continue to offer piano lessons in the upstairs studio.
