On a cold winters evening we entered the Werner and were immediately warmed by the feeling of welcome and enjoyment in the place. Starting with a Vana Tallinn Kakao (highly recommended) we quickly thawed out ready for the food which was filling and beautifully presented. Then for the cakes - what a selection! Two of us shared three pieces of... More

Wonderful variety of cakes and pastrys - sweet and savoury - for wonderful prices. You will have difficulties with choosing what you want - there are so many choices. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. This is Tartu's oldest coffee lounge - it opened in 1895.

Excellent and a wide range of puffs,pastries, and chocolates. Also offers meals and beverages. A double hot chocolate along with 'Napoleoni' is my all-time favourite.

We had a really time at this very special place in the very heart of Tartu. Lunch was super tasty, waiter so nice and service quick. But those cakes are just indescribable. If you have a sweet tooth, it's your place to go- And if not - they have salty cakes too!

One of the best cafes, where both salty pastries and sweet cakes are sold! Also lots of nice places to sit (especially in summertime in the yard). The only minus- as it is so popular, it is often crowded.

Estonian cakes are unique. They can be not sweet. Werner offers the best cakes in the town. There you can try Estonian and non-Estonian cakes. The Variety of sweets and pies you will never see in any cafe in the town or even Estonia. It is 10 meters away from the town center. It became part of the town culture.... More

I loved the idea of dining in a bit of the towns history. It was wonderful, make sure you get a hold of the menu to read about who use to sit and discuss politics. you can imagine it use to be filled with the smoke of past academics as they discussed ideas over coffee and cake. Thank you for... More
