Some people know furniture-giant IKEA better for their Swedish Meatballs than their sofa cushions, and that’s okay. The Swedish company’s in-store cafeteria is one of the many reasons fans love it, so what better time to go all out there then during the holidays?

Shoppers will get that chance at IKEA’s annual Easter buffet, which is back again this year to celebrate spring with a smörgåsbord of Swedish dishes.

The all-you-can-eat “Swedish Easter Påskbord” will be held on Friday, April 5, and will be presented in three courses, in addition to beverages and desserts.

The first course will include assorted varieties of herring, deviled eggs with shrimp or seaweed pearls, marinated salmon with mustard sauce and poached salmon with cucumber dill sauce.

The second course will be composed of assorted Swedish cheeses, Swedish cucumber salad, Swedish red potato salad and crispbread, crisprolls, softbread and thinbread.

An assortment of Swedish desserts and cookies will be available for those with a sweet tooth, along with fountain beverages and hot beverages to help you wash down all that food.
