W. E. Noffke (1878–1964) was an architect in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, best known for his residential works. His houses, some of the grandest in the city of the time, are in eclectic style, often with Mediterranean influences. Most of his extant houses are in the Glebe neighbourhood.

Noffke also designed several high-profile Ottawa institutional buildings, including the central post office and several embassies. He also designed the new Ogilvy's Department Store on Rideau St in 1907 along with its 1914-1917 rear addition.

Noffke's initials stand for Werner Ernst, but his full first name is rarely used.
