For 75 years, Kannas has been a fixture of Eerikinkatu, a 15-minute walk from the city centre. The main use and atmosphere of the space has varied, and food has not always been on the menu, but these days Kannas is known for its authentic Finnish cuisine and generous portions. Rest assured, you will not to leave this restaurant hungry. Kannas was originally established in 1939 by IK.T. Itkonen, who had arrived in Helsinki after having to flee his home of Karelian Isthmus during the Winter War.
