Werner has the best coffee, the best pastries and the best old-school cafe atmosphere in Tartu. Best place to try traditional Estonian cakes and savouries, especially Brita kook. Open early for delicious breakfast.

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.
