Locally owned, casual, friendly and inviting place—I could eat here once a week! The menu changes and is fresh and creative. Some of the dishes are staple items but most of them are unusual and “farm to table-esque”. For example, there are usually several types of homemade hummus offered and seasonal soups and salads that dare not disappoint. Yesterday I ate with a friend and had the “folk moot salad” which was a take on an event that takes place in July in Waynesville every year. My husband loves the soups that they feature which are always homemade, fresh and unique in texture and flavor. Whether you use Kaninis for catering an event, or just to pick up something from their refrigerator to take home or to treat a shut in, you will know that you are buying an excellent product. They have desserts that look like heaven but I am always so satisfied with my meal that there’s no room left for dessert.

We really enjoyed the Blue Ridge salad with sweet potatoes biscuit and pulled pork sandwich on ciabatta bread. Fast service and generous portions. A perfect lunch stop while visiting Waynesville.

Stop in for the first time, prompt, friendly service, very tasty food at very reasonable prices. The place is simple but clean, offer take out and prepared frozen meals.

I have eaten Kanini's food for many years but it just keeps getting better. From soothing and delicious comfort food to delectable dessert (don't miss the 3 layer brownie), they also provide salad, soup and vegetarian options. This is a woman-owned business which also offers frozen take-home dishes for easy home preparation. You will love this restaurant!

This placed is the best. Everything I have ever got from them was great. But have to say the chicken and waffles is by far my favorite. It is a special that they do. I always look at the weekly specials and always go when they have it. If you have not tried Kanini's you should try it.
