Many who live on the Southcoast have made the drive to Stoughton to shop, or just  browse at the incredible IKEA store.  But have you ever had breakfast, lunch or dinner at the IKEA Restaurant?  MSN.com says it's one of the most underrated restaurants in America.

I checked out the menu at IKEA's Stoughton website.  It's open daily from 9:30am until 8:30pm (Sunday 9:30 until 7:30), and there is a good variety with prices seem more than reasonable.  When you take a break from shopping, you can enjoy a snack or a full meal.  The restaurant also features Swedish dishes, as that's where IKEA is based.  Maybe you'd like salmon Lasagna, or chicken meatballs, or even the baked half spring chicken.

You may not want to drive to Stoughton just to dine at the IKEA restaurant, but it's an option to keep in mind should you be headed to Boston or any location near the top of Route 24.
