Contemporary Style & Organization - Plus Cafeteria!
IKEA is an amazing store. Upon entering, you take an escalator to the upper floor, where you can begin walking through an expansive showroom of various room configurations. You are encouraged to grab a measuring tape, notepad, and pencil to write down items you want to remember to pick up in the warehouse later! Ideas abound for living, dining, kitchen, bedroom, and closet areas -- with contemporary styling and well-thought-out organizational possibilities for every room of the house. It is honestly overwhelming, but fun. With directional arrows on the floor, you are led through the upstairs until you finally reach the children's area... which then leads to the cafeteria. By this time you are ready for a break, and some nourishment. (Which must be why they offer such a variety of food and beverages... all very reasonably priced) Our favorite is their signature Swedish meatball plate served with lingonberry sauce and mashed potatoes for $4.99. We usually get a salad, and a piece of their scrumptious apple cake (more apples than cake!) for dessert. The portion sizes are adequate to share. After lunch, it is time to go downstairs... where you can grab a cart and begin loading it with items for the kitchen and bath, including linens, rugs, lots of lighting possibilities, decor, and storage. They even have plants! From there you begin your exit through the warehouse, where you can pick up any furniture you have chosen, nicely boxed and ready to load. The checkout process is pretty fast for all the people that go through there. Then, as you leave the checkout area, they tempt you once again with food... an expansive Scandinavian food pantry, and a snack bar that serves cinnamon rolls. All in all it's a fun experience, and the items we have purchased (for both home and office) have been quality items that we continue to use and enjoy. Check it out!
