Ikea Rhodes go out of their way to encourage families to visit their store. Their motto is ‘We’re a family friendly store’. They offer a free 1 hour crèche service, Småland, for 3-10 year olds so you can get some much needed shopping done. The baby room for private feeding is fantastic and their children’s range of products will be fantastic from when you welcome your baby home to educational toys when they are older.
If you come here for shopping or just to visit the restaurant, you will have a fun time. All meals for children are $3.95 and include the standard fare of nuggets and chips and meatballs and mash. However they can enjoy any of the adult meals for half the price. During the week and school holidays, Ikea often offer a free kids meal with any adult one purchased. They really try and encourage families to dine during the week with offers such as 3 for $3 on Tuesdays after 3pm. You can bring the family for an early dinner and only pay $3 for 3 hot meals.
We enjoyed a large authentic Kottbullar Swedish meatballs, cinnamon bun and almond cake with chocolate butterscotch. The coffee is not gourmet or barista prepared but it is free if you are an Ikea member.
