    If you know exactly what you want- do like I do- do IKEA backward. Go thru an open checkout, and head straight back to the warehouse Just grab what you came for, and head for the register. Timesaver!

    Their restraint is always consistent in the great value and taste! Their signature meatballs are always a safe and tasty choice and their whole menu is delicious! The shopping is fun and well setup.

    Best thing about Ikea is that you smell those delicious cinnamon rolls all through your shopping and then you can buy them after you check out. I have yet to make it out of Ikea without one.

    You can go to IKEA just for the food. They have great swedish meatballs for very cheap. Everything is nice, clean and tastes good!

    Breakfast ends at 11 sharp and they will stop serving food for a few minutes just to switch so if you want their breakfast be there on time! It's worth the $2

    After you pay for your furniture, check out the food market past the registers. My advice: Try the Vasterbotten and Morfars cheeses. They're shipped from Sweden and are tasty with bread and tomatoes.

    Everytime I go here with my wife I feel a big house remodel creeping up. Quality seems rather suspect but walking through the showroom offers some great ideas for the house.

    I had no idea that you can get free coffee upstairs in the restaurant before 10am I guess? And if you sign up for the IKEA Family card thingy, you get free coffee or tea everytime you go!

    Always visit the kitchen to find out if they are offering discount if you purchase over a certain amount, you could end up with a free meal.

    I'm am irritated by the digression of the quality of the potaroes. First they were boiled reds whole, then boiled reds mashed, then to potato pearls with just the right consistency. Now just watery.

    Try going to the last chance area - they sometimes have discontinued items that are in perfect condition! I got 15% off my couch because it was the last one!

    Prepare to walk.Endless furniture for your dorms and house.Their hot dogs are the only reason you need to go there.It's pretty confusing to find your way but the employees are very friendy and helpful

    Can be crowded. Few days throughout the year, they offer "free food." If you spend 150+ or more on furniture, you can get your food price taken off the total if you provide the receipt at checkout.

    Fun thing to do: On a busy day, sit on a sofa in the lounge area inside the entrance. Watch the stream of people go up the escalator, never to be seen again.

    Love the meatballs in the restaurant? Did you know you can buy the meatballs, gravy and lingonberry preserves in the store downstairs?

    Go during the week if you can, and save time to have dinner here. The food is great and it’s really affordable.

    Don't think your just going to spend $50.00 be prepared to shop until you drop. Best part when you spend over $150.00 you get the all you can eat buffet.

    The shopping carts have no aliment and are hard to make turns, but the flat carts are awesome to ride on with or without boxes.

    We all know that it's impossible to make a "quick" trip to IKEA. Since you're staying a while, why not bring your own reusable aluminum water bottle?

    Want something from the Swedish Market to the right of the downstairs foodservice? Self-Checkout lanes recognize food SKUs, letting you skip the food service line.

    Hide in the warehouse after close without being found overnight and you win a free meatball combo.

    Breakfast is decent. Prices are cheap for a reason. The Swedish meatballs are mushy. Chicken meatballs taste like and have a texture of a chicken sausage. Mac and Cheese tastes as bad as KD. Yuck.

    She's right. I walked through the whole store and walked "by" lots of stuff. But I sure didn't "buy" a thing. :P

    Is it possible to walk through and not buy something? No, it isn't. Be sure to try the food - especially the meatballs.

    Yes the breakfast is cheap, but the eggs are powdered, & the service is RUDE. Get a coffee and a cinnamon bun here, in the am.

    The meatballs and mashed potatoes remind me of Swanson's Salisbury Steak TV dinners when I was a kid.
