My name is Marguerite and I am very pleased to meet you here at Dutch Fika.
Small businesses are said to be a reflection of their owners. I guess that has been true for me and Dutch Fika! Dutch-Fika was a mix of my Dutch/Swedish heritage, my background in pharmaceutical chemistry and teaching and my love for good bread.
Despite being an introvert, I truly enjoy meeting people, so especially during shop hours I was always happy to end up in a long conversation about bread, flour, heritage grains, milling and recipes. Favorite topics included the difference in nutritional value between today's modern wheat and the heritage grains as well as the difference in their digestion: heritage grains lead to a happy body instead of a bloated and still hungry one.
In the summer of 2021 I will be moving back to Sweden, but if you like to sit down with me to go through an entire education about grains & guts & sugar and healthy metabolism, please let me know and we can grab a coffee on 20th Street at City Center Coop.
And if you have any particular questions,
send me an email at
However, I do want to highlight one of my partners that you should check out regardless: Central City Coop, The place in Houston for fresh produce, dairy and eggs
