The spirit of the Red Star rules in this ecologically friendly Berlin café/bar collective. Affiliated to the squat next door, Morgenrot now functions as a viable and socially responsible business. Regardless of class, race or status, everyone is welcome; the café is an open space for political discussion, exploration of intellectual ideas and just plain old relaxation – but don’t feel obliged to turn up clutching a copy of Das Kapital. The colourful interior, a mixture of sculptures and art works designed by local artists, makes for interesting eye candy. A tasty vegan/vegetarian buffet breakfast is served daily from 11am, for €4-8. Only fair trade coffee is sold; a percentage of the profits are donated to social projects in developing countries, making Morgenrot the antithesis of Starbucks’ café culture.
