The IJ-Kantine is a cheerful and a modern decorated brasserie, situated by the water of the NDSM yard. The Baanderij, as the building used to be called, is a part of the shipbuilding history in Amsterdam. The canteen was the favourite meeting place for lunch for the board of directors of the NDSM-wharf as well for the ordinary labourers, but they had their own staircases on both sides of the building so they wouldn’t meet each other. (source: ijkantine.nl) Nowadays it’s a mix of people working around there having lunch and people passing by enjoying coffee, high tea or dinner. Every Sunday afternoon there is live Jazz!

The Baanderij has been used since 1957 as office, assembly hall and canteen of the NDSM-wharf. Now the IJ-Kantine is located in this building. Open from 9 a.m.
