This cafe has a very pleasant courtyard, which gives an optimistic start. The service was very good, but the food, coffee and even the cakes were quite disappointing.

I was hoping to spend some wonderful time in the iconic restaurant in Tartu but the experience was just an average one. Nothing was completely wrong but not right either. The tables in the second floor just don't fit in the athmosphere - they are huge and clumsily situated, not a reasonable choice, as there were only two people in... More

I was so anxious to go to Trip Advisor's #1 rated restaurant/cafe in Tartu that it is the first thing we did after checking in to our hotel. The patio was full, unfortunately, and we had to sit inside where it was very stuffy. It was warm outside but it was OVERLY warm inside. It was busy but they were... More

All cakes and coffee here are great, the only problem is which one to choose. Fresh, good quality with reasonable price, best choice of anytime. Oh, another problem is to find a seat here!! Good place for chatting with companies, also a good place for just reading alone (of course accompany with cake and coffee:) MISS IT!

One can not say that has visited Tartu when not being in the Cafe Werner. The cafe has had better and not so good times but currently regained again the place could called as an iconic cafe of the city. The best coffee, excellent choice of confectionery, really sweet and friendly staff. And last not least: a real feeling of... More

The best cafe I would say in Tartu and may be in baltics! The staff is sweet and friendly. I agree that this the best cafe in the town but they are not able to keep the best for the restaurant, that's why cut one star!

I go there every time I visit Tartu, for a nice piece of cake.The carrot cake is my favorite. Last year, when some of the Erasmus- students from the UK and Belgium took a trip to Tartu, I recommended the place and they were impressed, too.

Cafe on the first floor is quite nice and popular specially among older ladies. Had very bad restaurant experience on the second floor, quite expensive food but VERY POOR quality ( I don´t consider surimi sticks as seafood plus couldn´t feel the taste of anything but badly seasoned CAN tomatoes). The restaurant is one of the worst in whole Tartu.
