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.

Great inside information!

We were recommended this cafe for coffee and cake by our new Estonian Family, And we're not disappointed, it is fantastic! The coffee is excellent cakes too lovely to choose but you just have to. We sat inside as there weren't any free tables in the little courtyard.

Really nice variety of cakes and nice coffee. There are many options to have your coffee and cake: inside on the ground floor, on the second floor or outside at the terrace.

No table service, but the queue at the counter is pretty fast. The coffee is 5 stars, the cakes are beautiful, but a bit too much sugar on everything for my taste. You can find some traditional local cakes and also some interesting sweets like mochito creme. Very nice atmosphere, terrace at the inner court... and good wifi connection. Give... More

Great atmosphere with delicious coffee. Wonderful selection of quiches and cakes. Sat in courtyard and watched sparrows nick crumbs from finished plates. Great wifi too.

We went twice to Werner Cafe-Lounge: the first time we did not stay because we had already visited another cafe which pleased us in every way and due to Werner´s favour there was a queue and assortment in the vitrine did not meet expectations. We decided, however, to give Werner another try later wondering if the appearance of bakery and... More

I've heard a lot about Werner's cafe in Tartu but since I don't really visit Tartu, I've never had the possibility to visit it. Luckily last week I managed to do it and I'm very happy with the decision. We ate a breakfast there. I ordered pastry, small moijto cake, salty tort slice and cappuccino. All mentioned tasted very good... More

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
