IKEA is the place to be this Easter! The furniture company recently announced its plans to host an all-you-can-eat buffet in honor of the upcoming holiday, and tickets to the food-packed event are as low as $2.99.

The annual Easter Påskbord (Swedish for holiday spread) is scheduled to take place on Friday, April 5, at IKEA locations around the country. Though the food will be served buffet style, the menu is still divided into three courses. Classic Swedish food offerings include assorted varieties of herring, marinated salmon, different Swedish cheeses and many other savory favorites, including, of course, the chain’s beloved meatballs.

In fact, the menu features both chicken meatballs and the popular Swedish meatballs, which will be served with lingonberry jam.

For those with a sweet tooth, the dessert course will include an array of Swedish sweet treats and cookies, as well as fountain and hot beverages.

“We are excited to celebrate the Påskbord tradition with our customers this Easter,” Krista Boyer, sales leader of IKEA Food, said in a statement. “Påskbord is all about spending time with family and friends and sharing the Swedish traditions.”

Considering you’re signing up for an all-you-can eat adventure, the tickets are very reasonably priced. They are available for $16.99 per person and $4.99 for kids 12 and under, or at a discounted rate for IKEA Family members at $12.99 per person and just $2.99 for kids 12 and under.

Each store that’s hosting a Påskbord will also have two seatings: one at 4:30 p.m. local time and another one at 6:30 p.m. However, since seating is limited, those who are interested in attending are encouraged to purchase tickets early at their local IKEA store.

As one enthusiastic fan put it, “I liked it last year and since this one is easter they have deviled eggs and stuff … I had fun just eating.” Added another: “Brunch at IKEA, anyone?”
