I have never been to an IKEA. NEVER! I’ve been in there parking lot once to meet a friend, but that’s as close as I’ve gotten. If you’re a fan of not only their furniture, but also their food, you’re going to like this.

According to Food Beast, IKEA’s all-you-can-eat Midsummer Buffet is returning this summer for one day only. Each store’s restaurant will have the buffet on Friday, June 23. For years I’ve head amazing things about IKEA’s Swedish meatballs, but I’ve never tried them. I’m in for a buffet though!

Midsummer is a beloved Swedish tradition that celebrates the longest day of the year. For the IKEA Midsummer Buffet, locations across America will offer a family-friendly feast that includes Swedish meatballs, salmon, and seasonal summer drinks. Sounds good!

Tickets for the event must be purchased in advance and they’re available now. If you’re an IKEA Family member, you can get adult tickets for $19.99 and kids tickets for $9.99. For non-members, the price is $24.99 per ticket with kids tickets $12.99. You can get tickets in-store at the IKEA Restaurant.

The IKEA here in our area is at 8300 Ikea Blvd, Charlotte, right off I-85.  Phil and I need to do a ‘field trip’ there and film it. I have a feeling my reaction might be funny!
