Fika/Swedish Pastries Playing Cards by by Prospero Art; art by Jan Padover

In Sweden, fika is a term for the coffee ritual that includes the pastries and sweets that are typically served with the beverage. Jan Padover, who lived in Sweden for several years, has created art for the 55 playing cards in this deck, depicting mouth-watering morsels that may prompt a trip to your own coffee bar.

Anecdotally, it is said that the word "fika" comes from a time when coffee was forbidden, and thus the code word fika.
