Hard to find with the construction around Ybor City but worth the visit

As usual the shopping here was fun but the highlight was the cafeteria food with their signature Swedish meatballs. Add some cinnamon buns and a delicious piece of chocolate cake for dessert and we were quite pleased. Of course the price is right too. We'll stop here whenever in Tampa.

Went to Ikea today , to purchase a new bed. They have a buy your meal, pay for it. Then spend $100.00 on a store purchase and they'll take your food purchase price off of your store purchase price. The Swedish meatballs are excellent. Highly recommend. Always a great day going to Ikea!

This is the 2nd time this month I have gone to Ikea, this time we planned it after our meal last time we did it by chance. I enjoy the simple menu, the tasty tidbits that are available cafeteria style. As a member I am able to enjoy a free cup of tea. Just a little treat but makes me... More

Come here every time we are in the store and love it. They could use a bit more selection, but their food tastes great and is reasonably priced.

We went to Ikea in Tampa for the first time. The place is huge and overwhelming but we did have fun. After shopping for some time we decided to check out the restaurant since we had heard rave after rave about their "Swedish Meatballs".

You must be on a different kind of taste buds to like food from this place, this is a great shopping place but food is definitely something they should have stayed away from.

A friend & I stopped in On a rainy cool day of shopping. We each had coffee and dessert. Both were delicious. The cafe is spotless and prices are reasonable.
