Stand alone IKEA Cafe’s may be coming!

All you can eat Swedish Meatballs anyone?

IKEA, famous for its inexpensive Swedish meatballs and ready-to-assemble furniture, might open standalone cafés, according to the retailer’s head of U.S. food operations.  Believe it our not, Ikea sold about $1.5 Billion in Meat Balls in 2013!

IKEA recently started putting more time and money into its eateries, which have been redesigned and now offer healthier menu options, including chicken and vegan Swedish meatballs.


The restaurants, many of which can accommodate 600-plus diners at once, now include different sections, including an area with comfortable sofas and a children’s play section. The proposed standalone cafés, however, would be smaller in size.
