Transit is a Portuguese cafe on Schlesische Straße in Berlin, formerly known as Ohio. It is run by Jose and Julia, a couple from the same town in Portugal who didn't meet each other until they moved to Berlin. The cafe offers chili, quiche, and empanadas (with spinach and feta cheese, meat, and tuna fish, sandwiches, and soup) daily, and specials which vary day-to-day like Mouqueca (a Portuguese stew with fish, shrimp and coconut milk, served with rice), Mousakka, and stuffed peppers. At night it is a relaxed place to drink cocktails, listen to music and hang out with friends. They also host evenings with DJs and other musical acts.
They play good music, as there are at least two DJs working there. The other employees are film makers, clothing designers, choreographers, etc. This exciting mixture of creative people produces an easy-going and fun atmosphere.
The decor has become more colorful and cozy with the change of ownership, they now offer W-Lan access for their customers, and the usual mix of second hand, mismatched couches, chairs, tables and lamp remains.
