Sorry for the unexpected cease in broadcasting, but rest assured we are all well and no one suffered any lingering side affects from the pigs. To answer Bugsy, there´s definately been a huge increase in numbers this year and our current theory is that the mild winter killed off fewer than it normally would have and that hunting is down (based on the fact we´ve seen less people with big cars in the forest in the last 6 months).
And for Vailian, the best brunch place in existence is cafe Istoria on Kollwitzplatz (U2, between Senefelderplatz and Eberswalder str)in Prenzlauerberg. Belluno´s next door is also pretty good. Cafe November up the road does waffles, although the spread isn´t as big and it lacks a lot of the hot food. Otherwise, try Morgenland in Kreuzberg (U1, Görlitzerbahnhof). All cost about 8€ for the buffet which is open until 4pm (Sat and Sun), drinks extra.
Wow, do I sound like a guidebook.
