The place is popular with locals, which is always a good sign. However, this means that it is often crowded and the line can be pretty long. Still worth it! Try the sour cream cheesecake!!!

Werner, at Ülikooli street, is definitely the best place in Tartu to get a cup of good coffe, they literally have it in the menu.

We had dinner at the most busiest time, place was crowded. Still they managed to bring our food pretty quickly. Food was ok. On the first floor they have an amazingly huge selection of cakes, so surely everyone can find sth for their taste. Service is excellent.

Best cafe in Tartu. Amazing atmosphere, even the outside during summer. Delicious cakes, all of them deserves to be tried at least once. Outstanding service! Perfect to study, read a book, chatter with friends and to start your morning with an amazing cake. I miss this place now that I'm not in Tartu anymore.

Great place. It's near town hall square and has lots of different cakes and quiches. You can't order from tabel, so you have to stand in the line. I think that "Brita" cake is the best. For warm meal there's restaurant upstairs.
