We ate delicious cake there. Prices were cheap, service was nice and athmosphere relaxed. It was almost midnight until we left but there was still a lot of people tasting cakes, biscuits etc. Very nice place if you want to spend some time in the evening and don't like night clubs or other noisy places.

Here you can have special coffees, espresso is delicious and the cakes are for me the best I have ever had. Check out the carrot cake, the typical one and, if you like cheesecakes, this is your cafe, for sure. Every day at noon they prepare different soups, that are really tasty and cheap (2 euros!). Werner, I love you!

There are not many places in Tartu that offer freshly made cakes. I have visited this place over many years and it seems that the cakes are unfortunately losing their freshness and taste. Most are too sweet and have lost the taste of home-made cakes, but luckily there is a wide selection to find some delicious ones. Truffles are an... More

My daughter and I visited The Werner cafe today. Cozy and very nice staff. I had 2 cups of their delicious cappuccino. We had their cheesecake and another cake (not sure of name). Great price and delicious. Highly recommend.

We went to Werner Cafe in Tartu, the cafe is cosy, busy, relaxing and warm. The cafe has free Wi-Fi so bring your laptop, phone or tablet. The coffee and cakes are delicious. The staff are very friendly.

A nice place with a charm that looks vintage. The soups are offered explendidas, especially salmon. The pastry is in the ground floor is spectacular. The cakes are superb as well as coffee. A place to recommend.

Nowhere else is their such a high standard on hand-made pralines. I would never leave Tartu without taking a big box of them home. Werner's confections are better and more diverse than any I have seen in Belgian chocolatier's assortements like Neuhaus or Leonidas. This is the place where students would discuss philosophy and everything else with their professors.

I love this place so much. Prices are incredibly ok, I still haven't understood why this perfect place is so economic, counting the fact that coffee cups and disserts' portions are quite big. Many other cafes here are much more expensive, although the quality is not that high. Cakes are delicious, the place is cute and comfortable (big tables, big... More

If you ever visit Estonia and beautiful little town in Southern Estonia called Tartu, then you definitely have to have your coffee in Werner Cafe. There is probably the best coffee in town and also a variety of different cakes that tastes amazing. It is located in center and also near to University of Tartu.
