Staying at a nearby hotel, we decided to have a wander through IKEA. Thought we'd save some money by having dinner in the cafeteria. BBQ chicken wrap was too salty but nicer than Trader Joe's wraps. Salad greens were dry (that's better than slimy, though) and salmon was just OK. The eight Swedish meatballs with veggies, mashed potatoes and gravy... More

Sometimes we leave for the airport early to get a cup of coffee. Free with our IKEA card. It is Swedish coffee, all we can drink with good coffee cream. It comes with a view of the huge parking lot and we enjoy people watching from above. But If you go for breakfast it is the best deal in town,... More

Gummy meatballs with only a scooch of animal flesh in them. Limp hot dogs. Cafeteria food for spice fearers

As always, the IKEA Cafe is a favorite hang out for the men who don't love to wander through Ikea. Coffee, meatballs, and desserts are favorites.

When shopping at Ikea, I always have lunch in the cafeteria. The meatballs are great, and the chocolate cake is to DIE FOR!!! The place is very wheelchair friendly, and the staff is always nice and helpful. I also tried lingonberry sauce for the first time, and it was very good.

We went to IKEA the night before to see what else we could stuff inside our suitcases. We have no IKEA in Hawaii. Picked up a few items and had the $2 special. A drink and two hot dogs! Yumm!

Cheapest food around my son ate for free which was already SUPER cheap. I enjoyed lox and a salad. After some more shopping got a 2.25 latte on the way our

This trip was the first time I experienced IKEA's breakfast. I've eaten lunch/dinner there in the past and I always opt for the meatballs. They are yummy! For breakfast, I couldn't get over the price. So very inexpensive and there was quite a bit of food. I love that the sausage was turkey! It was very good and would definitely... More

It is a cheap $2 and you get what you pay for. Would I do it again, I guess. Eggs are kinda old and grey looking when they use the ice cream scooper! The sausage and pancake are ok. The potatoes are the really what I liked. They need to offer an extra scoop for an up charge. Breakfast and... More

Ikea is the best! They offer a full gluten free menu including meatballs, mashed potatoes, gravy, and cake! My kids are in heaven when we go here. Plus, Mom is happy when kids eat free Monday-Friday. :-)
