IKEA is known for two things: minimalist Swedish furniture and delicious Swedish fare.

Ever since its flagship store opened in Malaysia back in 1996, KL-ites have flocked to the alternative furniture store for more than just furniture but inspiration on the minimalist way of living as well.

Such was its popularity that folks would even visit IKEA just for their food alone.

Now, IKEA gets its very own café which is independent of the furniture store and is a standalone eatery. It’s also just a stone’s throw away from the original IKEA restaurant.

The IKEA café was launched alongside IPC Shopping Centre when it underwent its latest face lift.

Unlike the IKEA restaurant where you’d find main meals like meatballs and salmon dishes, you’d find coffees, juices, cakes and light bites such as pies here.

The ambiance of this eatery borrows from the furniture store: clean, fuss-free and the storefront even has a cardboard box feel to it.

Noting how most IKEA furniture’s shipped home in a cardboard box, it’s pretty nostalgic to see the new IKEA café, complete with a Hej (Swedish for Hey or Hello) printed on too.

If you’re looking for some sweet treats or small bites, the new café is the perfect place to drop by.
