Typically a visit to IKEA is never a short one and expect to be in line to check out your merchandise. What I typically do is either eat at the cafe first or eat after I've paid for my merchandise. I do like the Swedish meatballs. For $5.99, I get 15 meatballs with mashed potatoes and lingonberry on the side, a soup or side salad, and a drink. For $2.99 you can get a dessert like a chocolate mousse cake or something similar. For a price of fast food, I do enjoy eating at the IKEA cafe and people watch. It's clean, it's real dishes, and it's not too bad. If you really enjoy the food, you can purchase them downstairs. If you spend more than $100 on merchandise, your food is free (ask the cashier or staff on how to get the certificate).
Sometimes the kitchen staff is friendly, sometimes not, depending on how busy they are. However, I would rather eat there after a shopping trip to IKEA than eat fast food.
