Strong Adolfos
Coffee & cake

Fika is a Swedish word meaning coffee, conversation and something sweet, and is part of the philosophy behind Strong Adolfo’s, a café run by John and Mathilda Friström Eldridge on the Atlantic Highway near Wadebridge. Mathilda is the chief baker at Strong Adolfo’s and takes inspiration from traditional Swedish recipes, some handed down from her great-grandmothers, to which she has added her own twist. Traditional Scandinavian flavors of cardamom and cinnamon add warmth to buns and cookies, the chocolate balls (chokladbollen) are heavenly, and her beautiful cakes (many of which are gluten free) change daily. Add to that some great coffees from Origin and you’ve got yourself fika. The menu is vibrant and healthy, with burgers, curries, salads and daily specials. The vegetarian breakfast is delicious; portions are generous and reasonably priced. The café hosts regular art exhibitions, motorcycle meets and vintage vehicle pit stops with weekly pop-up nights in summer. Free wifi and easy location mean it is also popular for business meetings.
