Refugio Coffee Bar

When we first set food at REFUGIO COFFEE BAR we knew we had to write about it. It is just that special of a project.Refugio Coffee Bar

Refugio is a mix of share house, café and event space located in the Neukölln district. It is a unique project in the sense that it has been able to successfully shelter people in need and at the same time create a very welcoming environment for everyone. On the ground floor, you will find this gem of a coffee bar. Sven Lager, Andy Romeike and their teams work hard to create a beautiful story of social and communal wealth, a far cry from the more traditional philantropic models.Refugio Coffee Bar

To get here, take the subway (U8) to Schönleinstrasse and walk for less than 5 minutes.The very spacious coffee shop is very well put together. From the design and art elements to the nice coffee equipment and the top notch craft coffee. We are particularly obsessed with the golden comfy and inviting couch. Take some time to go around the room and enjoy the displayed art for sale.Refugio Coffee Bar

That said, what is truly amazing about this coffee shop is not what one can immediately see. The project and the people around here is what truly matters. Volunteers working in the coffee and hospitality industry donate their time and exchange skills, culture and experiences with refugees and persons in need. Grab a nice coffee and hang out for a while.  Watch the beautiful project come alive. If you feel like it, talk to some of the people either working or just chilling. You are guaranteed to have an extraordinary experience.

This space has an amazing rooftop terrace that is currently being rennovated. We will let you know if and when it will be open to the general public. Stay tuned.Refugio Coffee Bar

While you are in the area, make sure to explore the Turkish Market (Tuesdays and Fridays) along Maybach Ufer. One of your favorite street markets in Berlin.
