I have extolled the many of virtues of IKEA before, but did you know IKEA has a Swedish food market?

Get your Omega fatty acids from the land of Volvo, ABBA, and people with Legoland haircuts. Try the many seafood products IKEA supplies, particularly salmon fish—as frozen blocks, or cured and spiced as Gravlax filets, even in paste form. This leads me to my little font-in-use discovery:

Abba Seafoods (no relation to the dancing queens) uses FontSmith Albert for their product labeling.

Yes, very fonty, even very healthy, but this Typophiler wound up making a beeline to the hotdogs and ice cream anyway.

IKEA also has a lovely luncheonette, and at least the dining area at the one in East Palo Alto has a fantastic view of... well, the parking lot. Really! It's very nice and the food is more edible than you'd expect for the price.
