As everyone knows, fika is a must during a romantic weekend and Umeå has a large selection of cafes to choose from. At Väven's indoor town square, you can sit back in peace and quiet with a cup of what you like most and a fresh pastry at the artisanal bakery Kulturbageriet. Alternatively, you can settle down next to the city center at one of Umeå's historical cafes, Nya Konditoriet, which for many decades has been an obvious meeting place for the people of Umeå. Here you can also taste the local delicacy Slabang.
