Are you reading this thinking “isn’t Ikea that Swedish furniture store?” Why yes, it is. But have you never eaten in their café? Well I think you are missing out and you should try it at least once! LOL
Ambiance/Atmosphere: If you have never shopped at Ikea, I do recommend you check it out in person at least once! Just be careful if you do not want to spend too much money because it can be dangerous! Anyways, this location specifically is set up that you can walk directly to the food café without walking through the store, but what fun is that!? The café is set up cafeteria style where you can see pre-plated meals, desserts and sides. Then you have the hot bar to select entrees. Cafeteria style trays hold your meals, and they have special carts that make it easier for you to carry and maneuver. I would say it is a great mix of cafeteria style blended with a café vibe with a variety of tables, chairs, high tops and lounge seating!
Drinks: Drink stations make it easy to help yourself and come back for refills! They have both hot and cold drinks. The soda fountain machine has a great variety of sodas, and juices! Variety is always a great option.
Menu: As mentioned, it gives cafeteria vibes. There are salads, sandwiches and hot entrees as options. Dad ordered the smoked salmon salad. It came topped over a bed of mixed greens with a lemon dill dressing and side of potato salad. Dad order a side of French fries and Swedish meatballs. The meatballs are mine and mom’s favorite and what we ordered! They are served with mashed potatoes, peas and some cranberry sauce. It’s a great balance of deliciousness as well as a comforting meal. We also ordered a side of mac and cheese, because it’s hard to resist when you see other people with it LOL. Overall it was a good, comforting meal and a great break before we explored the lower level of the store.
Tips/Recommendations: It’s a great break to walk through the first half of the store and then eat some food before continuing your shopping trip! If you are in a time crunch, skip the first half of the store and go straight to the café. There are some items, you can even buy to take home with you. Including dressings, sauces and the meatballs! And as always, try something new every time you go.

One thought on “Ikea (Conshohocken, Pa)”
It took us quite a long time to get through the store so I was pretty hungry when we ate. The meatballs, mashed potatoes were delicious.
