During my visit toTartu, I have stopped in 3 afternoons for coffee. The atmosphere is comfortable, service is friendly. I shared a slice of mango-lime cake with a friend and it was delicious.

In 1895, the gourmand and confectioner Johann Werner founded the cafe and it is as charming and elegant as before. I have visited this place many times and I will definitely plan to do this in the future.

The cafe has its own very famous past. Sweet lovers have a huge selection of cakes and sweets here. Unfortunately, the first floor is very noisy. Totally inappropriate for meetings and conversations.

Not an easy task to choose among the delicacies offered in this very cosy café where all scholars used to hang out years ago (from the nearby Tartu University). I went twice and each time the chocolate I drank and the sweets I tasted were...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.
