Get the joke? No? Remember JFK’s famous speech? “Ich bin ein berliner” – well kind of means that he’s a Berliner which is a jelly donut. What’s kind of confusing is that in Berlin they don’t call them Berliners (who know’s why?) but they are called pfannkuchen – which means pancake everywhere else in Germany. Confused? Yeah, just call it a JFK and maybe it will stick over time.

Found some at a cafe in the Metro near Potsdamer Platz
Considering it was from a metro cafe, it wasn’t all that bad, not as good as say donut plant in NY’s East Village but still great with coffee. Enjoy!!!
