Why should works canteens be just for the workers, and not for the rest of us?

In Berlin, countless works canteens are open to the public. Anybody can wander in, pick up a tray, queue of course, and then buy a mountain of a meal for the price of a snack. And then return your tray and dishes because that's what you do in a canteen.

You might choose the chichi surroundings of the Universal Music canteen overlooking the River Spree.

Or you could negotiate your way through the maze of theatre trucks and stage sets stacked in the yard behind the theatre on Schiffbauerdamm.

Considering the quality of the food you're likely to get there, you don't WANT to do that.

For cheap food, as a starving student, we used to feed at the Hari Chrisna restaurant in Perth. Was quite yummy. Canteens are evil though, all those bain-maries full of bubble and squeak type meals. Ewww.

Because the employer isn't subsidizing it for everyone, just employees. Also, non-employees aren't allowed access (most companies having such facilities also have security to keep out the riffraff). At least here.

the student union operated the cafeteria at my uni, as well as the student pub and student radio station.

Yes. Which is fine if you are at Uni at the time. This was a place to eat elsewhere.
