'''Kantin''' dari [[bahasa Belanda]]: ''kantine'' adalah sebuah [[ruang]]an dalam sebuah [[gedung]] [[umum]] yang dapat digunakan pengunjungnya untuk makan, baik makanan yang dibawa sendiri maupun yang dibeli di sana.
Instead of table service, there are food serving counters/stalls, either in a line or allowing arbitrary walking paths. Customers take the food they require as they walk along, placing it on a tray. In addition, there are often stations where customers order food and wait while it is prepared, particularly for items such as hamburgers or tacos which must be served hot and can be quickly prepared. Sometimes, for some food items and drinks, customers collect an empty container, pay at the check-out, and fill the container after the check-out. Free second servings are often allowed under this system. For legal purposes (and the consumption patterns of customers), this system is rarely or never used for alcoholic beverages.
