Werner Cafe & Lounge - Eating in Tartu - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

Werner is an important part of the university town having been the meeting place for professors, students, artists, poets and writers since 1882. The cafe serves the biggest cappuccinos in town and don't even bother trying to ignore the cake stand...

Why you should visit it

In addition to the cafe downstairs their 2nd floor lounge is one of the best hidden places to have a delicious dinner and relax. The worse the cake looks, the better it tastes. Trust me. Definitely try the carrot cake or 'Brita' cake.

These cakes were a bit too old-fashioned to me. Quiche was far from what it should taste. But the cake I tried (Kuninganna) was very good! As Piret said - don't choose by the fancy decorations!
