kids eat free at ikea

Did you know that Kids Eat FREE at IKEA right now? I ate at an IKEA several years ago and was so impressed with their food and their prices! I remember thinking when I went through the register to pay, “Are you sure that’s my total? That doesn’t seem like enough!”

This is why I was very excited to see they are offering FREE meals for kids on weekdays this summer from June 6th – September 2nd, 2016.

* This deal is for kids 12 and under. Offer not available at IKEA Carson or IKEA Las Vegas. Offer valid Monday – Friday only in the IKEA restaurant. Regular price: $2.49/ea. Not valid on previous purchases and cannot be combined with other offers. Not valid online.

Another thing I love about the food at IKEA, is that if you really enjoy what you tried, you can download the recipe! Here is a list of recipes you can download on the IKEA site.

The NEW Ephrata Location!


We decided to check out the new Ephrata location on a recent date night. The first thing we noticed was the unique interior design style of the restaurant. It is a cute location, with plenty of room for socializing with a group of friends or family.


Sorry for this picture. I forgot to take a photo at the beginning of the meal. By the time I was almost finished eating, I realized how good it was, and that I needed to share about it! For my side order, I thought I’d try something new – the carrot apple kale salad. I really wasn’t sure what I’d think of it, but it was incredible folks! You absolutely must try it.


The employees were very willing to accommodate my request to try the Jamaican wrap in a pita roll. I was quite pleased with the results and would definitely order it again.

Friday June 27, 2016 from 2pm-7pm

Customers who wear flip flops to support Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children withlife-threatening illnesses and their families, will receive a FREE 24oz Jetty Punch Smoothie!
