Had a very good pistachio truffle and then another awful, dried-out truffle. The chocolate PB cake was heated up for me (I was assured it was better that way)... But there was no PB inside! As a PB fanatic I was so disappointed. That being said, it was chocolatey enough. Besides savoury items, displays of various kinds of quiche. Nice... More

I don`t live in Tartu. Being a student we used to go and drink a cup of coffee with some cakes here. There is also a nice selection of tea, so cakes and pastries are accompanied by a lovely cup of hot drink, cosy atmosphere and wonderful service. Whenever I visit Tartu, it is one of my "have to go... More

I really love that they have so many options so even the pickiest person can have something. As it's very popular it's also quite busy but the service is still very good and friendly. Thumbs up! I've been there many times and unfortunately the quality is not as good as it used to be before. But the food is still... More

We went here for dinner after being recommended this place by the owner of our Airbnb. He said the restaurant upstairs was excellent. Although it was a little slow, it was good. Not amazing. However, for dessert, the cakes and coffees were absolutely amazing, and I give those a 10/10 rating. The carrot cake was amazing, very moist and tasty.... More

I finally found a good cup of coffee in Tartu and you get it at Café Werner. Price is decent with 2,50 Euro per cup. There is also a huge selection of different high quality pastries.

Absolutely the best Café I ever been. They have lots of glutenfree cakes. Coffee was excellent. Cashier and barista were really nice, but the waiter in the terrace was very rude. Maybe she was too busy. Thats why 4 stars not 5

Thank Marja M

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.
