I came here with my friends just for short coffee break during our trip to Tartu, Estonia. We came here just accidentally, but we are happy for this choice. We were stuned by choice of various cakes and pancakes! They were so attractive and tasty. Moreover they were so fresh. Of course, in this cafe there are lots of coffee... 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.

The cake - do I have to say more? Such a lovely place close to the Raekoja Plats. I used to go there numerous times during my exchange semester in Tartu. The girls at the counter all were friendly all the time. The prices for a piece of cake were quite expensive for Estonian standards but nonetheless it was definitely... More

The location is very central, the range of dainties wide. Have been there twice but neitherI tried them all nor will I, as they are in Estonia generally too sweet for my taste and Werner makes no exception. Estonians appears to still have a backlog demand for sugar which causes almost any coffee shop to be crowded. In the event... More

We were recommended this cafe by a local citizen and it was simply an amazing place. Though the logistic when ordering was not the best, but it gave you time to decide what cake to choose...it wasn't easy. I had the Nokh at a price of 1.30 Euro and my husband took the Makapense at 1.50 Euro and we enjoyed... More
