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.

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... read 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.

The coffee was good, the sweets were abundant and the atmosphere was great! I was here for a morning cup of coffee with friends and was impressed. The coffee was good and they had a great assortment of pastries and quiches. I would recommend any friend to try this place.

I am posting a new review. The situation is that I have not been to Werner Cafe-Lounge for a couple of years now. And it has changed it appearance since my last coffee-break there. The walls, what happened to those nice chocolate coloured walls of yours? That "baby-puke" color doesn't suite the place at all, it is not as appealing... More

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!
