Cheap eats.

Sometimes you’re so hungry, you need something cheap and quick. And especially when you’re in a place like Ikea – I never want to leave! – cheap food is an absolute find! 

I had the smaller breakfast option ($2.95). Baked beans, poached tomato, bacon, sausage, hash brown and scrambled eggs all piled unceremoniously onto a plate. Hey, I never said it was gourmet, but it is cheap and the food is very decent.

Sean went for the option that included meatballs ($5.95).

In all, Ikea food is pretty much like its furniture – nothing flash, very minimalistic, but very good value. Especially if you want to spend the first half of the day at Ikea – get in early and get the breakfast!

    But the best thing about the Ikea cafeteria is the Daim cake!

    Helen: Oh yes!! But they weren’t available when we went for breakfast. Have you tried the Punchroulle?

    Lateraleating: Absolutely! They’re incredibly decent for the price.

    Mel: How can anyone not? LOVE the lingonberry sauce as well!

    KayB: It’s not gourmet, but it’s good and hearty. =)
