Pierre is a real café in the truest sense of the word where you can hear the clinking of coffee cups and the pleasant hum of conversation, and also enjoy French and Italian cuisine with a great selection of delicious chocolate cakes and truffles. French music is played in the café every day. Welcome to Pierre Café & Chocolaterie!

“Come here for cakes, not for food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

Pierre has an excellent selection of cakes and truffles, as well as coffees. It was a busy day and I was sitting on the terrace, where the service is traditionally slower. However, Pierre's staff was excellent: fast, nice, and friendly. Now about not so good things: pasta, which I ordered, was obviously overcooked (same for my friend, who ordered it as well). The sauce was not as creamy as I would like it to be for pasta - overall, it wasn't very tasty pasta experience. So my advice is - come here to drink coffee with very fat, unhealthy, but tasty chocolate cake :)).

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

The atmosphere of Pierre would be an excellent place to enjoy an espresso and a slice of cake. Unfortunately, I ate dinner there. I am a vegetarian and I found the menu difficult to navigate through without having to eat meat. The wait-staff was extremely understanding and had a special salad prepared. Despite the pleasant mood and service, the food was fairly mediocre. I would recommend this strictly as a spot for an afternoon coffee and snack.

“Mmmmm... The cakes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Pierre in located right in the middle of the old town on Raekoja plats. I didn't expect much as these prime location places often are overpriced and not that special, but Pierre was great. Comfortable, fun interior, large outdoor area, nice pasta, cheap lunch, and the cakes - yum!

“Cosmopolitan feeling, classical interior, good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2011

A prime location just at the central square of Tartu, place was full, enjoyable atmosphere. A feeling as if You were not in a province, which Tartu is, but in a larger, more cosmopolitan place. Nice french old-style background music, classical style interior decoration, dim light - a romantic place. And which is most important - very good food! I had tiger-shrimps and beef a'la Firenze with plum souce - both delicious!! Strongly recommend!
