BREAKING: From January 2024, we are the new owners of Kanis. A renovation is planned for the beginning of February to tackle the bar and kitchen, so that we can work more comfortably and quickly, and not least importantly, Kanis will look even more beautiful! We also welcome the 'bitterbal' (returning) at KANIS, both meat and vegan!
In the bustling KNSM Island, amidst a mix of modern architecture and historical charm lies Kanis, a warm and modern brown cafe. Our beautiful location on the water has a jetty where you are allowed to moor with your boat. The spacious terrace faces south and is the ideal place to have a drink and snack in the sun. At Kanis, we are not just a cafe where you can enjoy a delicious lunch and cosy drinks during the day, but you can also come to us in the evening. Our International dinner menu changes regularly, keeping us surprising with delicious flavours!
In March, we offer the opportunity again to sit on our sunny terrace. For the adventurous types among us, we even offer the possibility to rent stand-up SUPs. So you can also actively discover the Eastern Islands from the water, a unique part of Amsterdam. We are looking forward to welcoming you at Kanis, where the good life, personal service, and international cuisine come together by the waterfront!
