The idea for Wayne’s Coffee was born from the dream of setting up a new type of meeting place, a homely urban environment to sit down and enjoy conversation, good beverages and something to eat. A meeting place with its roots in the Swedish “fika” tradition, an almost cultural institution involving taking a break in a workaday life and relaxing in the company of others.
