If you like cakes don't miss this cafe in Tartu. Choice is unbelievable. Coffee is good. Service is ok but cold and distant. But it doesn't matter, you like cakes, ok! There is a nice yard in summertime, don't stay inside.

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.
