Best Kaffee and Kuchen experience in Berlin?

Vielen Dank, eine recht schöne List!

Can't wait to exchange my weak dollars for sturdy Torten.

(Charlottenburg isn't my first choice, but -- speaking of weak doloars -- who could complain about a private apartment for 300 euro? Right. :)

I'm going with a sweet tooth, and hoping for a classic Sachertorte mit Schlag kind of place.

For what it's worth, I'll be staying in Charlottenburg, but hanging out mostly in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg.

Quality hooch in Portland?

Thanks, all! I shall go forth and fortify.

Guess I'll try the Hawthorne or Fremont joints first, and then work my way around ...

High-end German spirits? (moved from International board)

I know, I know, Germany is all about beer, but there must be a whole class of distilled beverages as well.

Asbach I've heard of, but what else counts as an authentic German classic alcohol? Even more to the point, what are the best labels?

Quality hooch in Portland?

Just moved to town, located in the NE near Alberta Street -- the liquor stores I've visited tend to stock only the large brands.

Where can I find a good selection of specialty alcohol, particularly some of the fantastic stuff created by Oregon distillers?
