We’ll admit it- even though we love their meatballs, we haven’t brought ourselves to make a trip to IKEA in a long, long time. Like Costco, it’s a trip that we need to be seriously prepared for, and more often than not comes with crowds to mill about in while we make a bee-line for the good stuff.
Well, we get to put the past behind us today! IKEA stores across Canada are now offering curbside pickup of their beloved food market items. That’s right, no more weaving your way through 1 kilometre of displays and warehouse shelves just to grab an unholy amount of meatballs (or the plant balls, which are honestly just as good).
They should let you walk around with a beer in IKEA

And of course, that’s the tip of IKEA’s culinary iceberg. Whether you’re feeling lingonberry sauce, some Swedish pancakes, or even the delectably indulgent DAIM cake, it’s not just a couple of clicks away. You’ll be able to order 1 to 2 days in advance, with one-hour long time slots to go grab your food.
No word of a lie, this is now our plan for Saturday. It’s been too long, old friend, and we can’t wait to see you again (if only briefly).
