FIKA Tea Shop - a new start

Lindfield tea shop FIKA is under new management.

The shop, at 64 High Street, has been bought by mother and daughter Lesley and Madi Somerville.

Both ladies are local and they’ve been looking for an opportunity to undertake a business of this type for some years – when the opportunity for FIKA came up they were very excited about the possibility. “We love Lindfield, and to have a shop on the High Street is perfect for us,” Madi explained. “It is very convenient for us and we’ve already been made welcome by residents and neighbours.”Both have worked in catering, with Madi being a trained chef and pastry specialist in the past. “For me,” she said, “it’s time to do it for myself after years of having worked for others.

”FIKA will offer great value and delicious home-made cakes and snacks – all made on-site and available to eat in or take away, from bacon sandwiches to cakes and, of course, tea and coffee too. Look out for cream teas during the summer and the daily specials board too!" 

FIKA is open six days a week from 8.30am-5pm.
