There are plenty of coffee shops in FiDi that work for meetings, but if you don’t want to call your medium-sized beverage a “grande,” then your options are more limited, and you should head to Fika. This mini-chain is Scandinavian-inspired, and even if you’re not in the mood for shrimp salad with dill on house bread, you can still make use of the bright, comfortable space that has plenty of seating. This FiDi location is large, especially for the neighborhood, and has a bunch of booths, as well as communal tables that work for meetings with bigger groups.
