Werner Café & Lounge has been operating as a café since 1895. It is a great place to start the day with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake. You are welcome to try all of our bakery and confectionery items, either here at the café or buying them to take away. Our head chef has also created a menu with something for everyone, from light snacks to full meals - all accompanied by great service. The restaurant is open from 11.00 am.

Just as good as promised

Cakes and pastry are very good. The food is, however, average. The stuffed chicken was undercooked and had far too much black pepper in it. The cream and pumpkin soup was also ruined by pepper.

One of the best cafes in Tartu. It has a very tasty coffee and cakes. It has an open lounge where you can have coffee in the summer. It's a very warm and nice place with perfect atmosphere and good prices and it's in the centre of Tartu. Worth visiting.

The cakes looked great but the coffee here is the best. No table service just queue along the front of the cake counter, for a calorie blow out.

The place is smart, clean and relaxing. Staff are friendly and helpful, but what makes the place is the cake counter. Although I've been to many a coffee house, my eyes opened wide at the sight of so many tempting cakes! Not only did the cakes look (and taste) good, but also the quiches and other savoury snacks also looked... More

We stayed at the nearby Hotel Antonius, and ended up visiting Werner twice for coffee and once for food. Downstairs is often crowded but you can have your coffee also upstairs where you can also eat. First time upstairs was fully booked but we booked a table next day. We had white fish and chicken. White fish (12 eur) was... More

I have regularly lunches there and I also use once their catering service. I have never been disappointed. The food is simple, fresh, tasty and cheap. I recommend in particular their catering service. Everyone was so happy about it! :)

We were a couple of 16 people and that is not easy to handle. There were three different menus, one for meat-lovers, one for fish-lovers and one for vegetarians. Everything was excellent, however the portions were huge and it was not possible to change a course. For example, the vegetarian dessert was a fruit sallad and it was not possible... More

Werner is one of the best cafes in Tartu - serve great coffee and have a wide selection of pastries and pies. Open from early morning to late evening. The cafe is very popular and can be crowded with long queues in the rush hours. Used to be my favorite place for breakfast, but lately the service has gone down... More

We had dinner in this restaurant one evening. Food was fresh and tasty and service very friendly. On an other day we had coffee and pastry, with so many to choose from it was difficult. I would definitely return to Werner should I stay in Tartu again.
