If you are going to visit Tartu, then you just have to go and visit Werner Cafe! They have best cakes in town - my favorite is carrot cake. Yummy! :) Service is super - always smiling waitresses.

This was our last stop in Tartu after walking through the University grounds. The coffee was wonderful and the pastry too. Loved the ambience.

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

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.
