IKEA Does Catering?

So I was eating my 99-cent IKEA breakfast the other day, when I noticed a placard on the table.  It said “Did you know that IKEA caters?”.

“No,” I answered.  “No, I didn't know that.”

Though I've got nothing against IKEA food, I've always thought of it as a means to an end.  For IKEA, it's a device to bring in furniture shoppers; for the shoppers, it's a convenient and cheap source of sustenance before shopping.

Don't get me wrong:  I love their breakfast.  I go there specifically to have it, and often, I leave without buying anything more.  Though I admit:  sometimes, I indulge in a frozen yogurt cone that they sell downstairs (at the same place the 50-cent hot dogs roll on weiner treadmills).

But again — for its intent and purpose, IKEA food is seems a little incongruous for say, your New Years Eve bash.  What do you think?  Would you ask IKEA to cater your party?

Though I can tell you that if I ever find myself at an IKEA catered event, I'm going straight for the Daim Torte — seriously — one of the best dessert things I've ever had.

Hmm, maybe IKEA should open a bakery instead.
