Great meal for the price (we had the meatballs) and the coffee is delicious! Nice restaurant with ample seating, too, so it makes for a pleasant dining experience.

I am a big fan of ikea....... Love that when you shop there you can get something quick and very inexpensive at the snack bar but it is also quick and inexpensive at the cafeteria. Smart in the fact that the store is so huge you don't have to leave to eat and then go back.

Visited again & good food choice. I had chicken-kale salad, fresh & tasty. The small hard bread is mediocre so I purchase a garlic bread, tasty. Greatest coffee. Pricing so reasonable. Good family friendly inexpensive, organized place to eat & rest.

There isn't an IKEA in my area, so I like to stop when I find one. We had some shopping to do to outfit a college dorm, so we decided to eat on site to save time. The Swedish meatballs are always tasty. We were tempted by the variety of desserts as well. Lunch was affordable, and we then had... More

I love the food at the Ikea restaurant! It may be premade for the most part, but the Swedish meatball meal is always a winner. Where else can you get lingonberries on your plate and a lingonberry beverage? My husband says the chicken strips are really good too. The watery vegetables are nothing to write home about, but heck, I'm... More

This place has some incredible food deals. Whether or not the food is as good as the deal is generally about 50/50. A nice amount of their food is decent. Unless you're going to be there for hours, you might as well eat before or after your visit, especially if you have high expectations of food regardless of price.

Five women stopped in for breakfast before shopping IKEA. The food, presented cafeteria style, was fresh and tasty. Communication with staff was a bit difficult. There is ample seating and prices are very reasonable.

The least expensive breakfast around. Stop in before 10:30 for breakfast. If you're a IKEA Faily member, you even get a free coffee.
