Welcome to IKEAFOOD

regular breakfastWe decided, in the name of science, to order all the possible non-dessert items that you could have for breakfast. That with a cup of coffee rang in for less than $6.

There are, of course, multiple options. A small and regular breakfast. Swedish pancakes. And a cinnamon roll.

The small and regular breakfasts are exactly the same, except the regular breakfast has these french toast dipping sticks. The dipping sticks, of course, are deep-fried, but surprisingly french-toast-like. The little potato chunks are also deep-fried, and also surprisingly delicious, even cold. The eggs are perfectly scrambled, not dried out at all from the steam tray, and seasoned. The bacon was the only disappointment, being smoked and just okay.

The buckwheat pancakes are folded into wedges and served with whipped cream and lingonberries on the side. These are good, but the steam table is not as kind to them as it is the breakfast -- I'm certain they're better right off the griddle.

And then there is the cinnamon bun. It's not as gooey and luscious as some, but it's still sweet and a bit sticky and perfectly okay with coffee.

I love the fact that your food comes on porcelain plates, your coffee in a porcelain cup, your flatware made of some sort of real metal. And the bargain hunter in me loves the fact that you can get a perfectly decent breakfast, quite possibly better than your neighborhood place, for $2.

I do find it amazing that you can get all that food for that price.

I was at IKEA last night returning some junk, and was disappointed that they were out of the $4.99 gravlax (it was near closing), but the meatball plate with potatoes was much better than the crap you get at the snack bar on the way out. I'm in no hurry to return, but next time I find myself near the airport in the morning with $2 in my pocket I'm definitely getting my breakfast on.

I think it is so cool that you embarked on this adventure!

IKEA breakfasts are especially welcome on those cold and rainy mornings between paychecks.
