    I go to Ikea sometime to enjoy the food. If you are nearby and you want to eat go there it is a nice option. Eat upstairs and front of the cashier get frozen yogurt. Give it a try.

    Get straight to the market place by heading towards the kids play area. The door to the market place is slightly hidden on your left. You'll shop faster & save money!

    Try the butternut squash, chicken coconut curry soups with vegetable medallion. And if you are still not full, get a side of fries! So good & cheap!

    Go in the exit and start in the As-is section!!! Maybe what you came here for is half price already if someone returned theirs or some items go in clearance often :)

    Make iced coffee in the restaurant! Fill a glass full to the top with ice, then add hot coffee and milk. Perfect!

    Breakfast still good, and coffee is free (with IKEA FAMILY card), but it's the #Bauhaus #Minimalist way of life that I like.

    Beer and balls in a furniture store? OK! Also, cheap hotdogs on the way out and you're set for a fun night of instruction interpretation and furniture assembly!

    $1.99 pasta and a drink will ding you $3.14 after tax. Hearty enough to keep you going through the entire showroom. Try the Tylosand.

    Had butternut squash soup and it was delicious. I don't usually eat at ikea so wasn't sure what to expect. Definitely recommend.

    Learn the shortcuts through the maze. And always anticipate that one thing you need will be out of stock. Great Santa at this location.

    Watch out for the yellow plastic floor boarder that goes round the outside of the store. It's intermittent and caused me to trip, ruining my boot.

    The returns desk is a joke, take a ticket and wait all day. Only 2 counters open and they workers go slow and don't care about speed. Feels like being at a government office.
