UNIVERSITY CAFE’- Tartu (Fusion Cusine)
This building housed both aristocratic galas and amusing students meeting.
In 1924 the building was bought by Tartu University and its first floor became a student dining hall.
In 1957 a café was opened in the second floor. Thus students and university staff had the possibility of relaxing in a comfortable atmosphere up to 1983.
After the renovations in 1983, rooms were organized in a different way and from that very moment the coffee daily life became less interesting.
At the beginning of 2005 Univeristy Café knew a revival, thanks to its six halls, its comfortable cornerns, its helpful staff and its excellent music. The Restaurant is located at the first floor and offers “menu à la carte” including handmade pasta and fresh tuna with orange sauce.
