Went in early for a breakfast. Cheap as chips and filled a hole.
Walked round the endless maze for what seemed like forever to find the product I wanted right at the end.

Staff stood everywhere just chatting.

Very nice restaurant with attractive food. My favourite is meatballs with mash and gravy, it tastes great every time. They also do a great fish and chips and seasonal dishes. The desserts look enticing but a bit pricey when you check the prices of the same desserts on their food shop. There is enough space for all to sit in and you can tell the quality of the food is great by looking at the restaurant which is always busy. If you hold a family card with IKEA, you get free hot drinks as well. The queue gets a bit long at times especially when there is not enough chips as almost everyone order chips. By the time the food is served and you go on the queue again to pay, pick up sauces, cutlery and drinks and sat down, the food gets already lukewarm if not cold. With recent changes, the only change I did not like is that they used to serve lingonberry sauce with the meatballs, but started putting them in a container which is never full and you miss out. Apart from this little glitch, the restaurant offers a great range of food and we will be returning as soon as we can.

We are always going to Ikea for a bite before we start our shopping :). It can be busy but the queue is always moving fast....
I like that its very clean, and food is cheap and you get free tea/coffee if you have Ikea family card. No restriction on amount of tea or coffee...

Every time we go to IKEA, we start with a meal in the restaurant. During the week, the queue is usually very small. The choice of food can be quite restrictive but it's always good quality. You can also help yourself to as much free tea & coffee as you like if you present your IKEA Family card (free to sign up) in store.

Have eaten here for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Breakfast is your classic selection of hot and cold items. Lunch options nice filling food often with Swedish twist. Priced well and great selection of cakes and branded drinks to accompany. Also a fast food bit as you exit.
