Cafeteria: RDM Kantine

When RDM was still a shipyard, the workers would take a breather here with their packed sandwiches. And today, this is still the place to be if you want a bite to eat or some drinks. The RDM Kantine is located on Heijplaatstraat 3: the former site of the Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij’s ‘Central Canteen’. Drop by the RDM Kantine for a cup of coffee, a continental breakfast with freshly-squeezed orange juice, a dinner salad, ‘RDM meatballs’ or a piece of cake from Dudok.

The RDM Kantine is more than just a catering establishment. You can still sense RDM’s rich history in this setting. The decorators have preserved its industrial look and feel and given it a contemporary twist. The cafeteria is a great place to meet up, work on a project, or simply relax and enjoy the wonderful views of RDM Rotterdam and the Dokhaven. The Kantine has free Wi-Fi and regularly hosts new exhibitions.


Anyone is welcome to visit the RDM Kantine: local companies, visitors to the Submarine Wharf, students, tourists, cyclists and, of course, true-blue ‘Rotterdammers’. It’s a great place to schedule a business meeting or a lunch with your colleagues, or to arrange to meet an acquaintance. You can also contact the RDM Kantine for group lunches, socials or high tea.
