WOW!! Fantastic!

No place like this in Clarksville for the REAL THING! If you haven't visited Silkes your missing alot!! Traditional food is "spot on" along with everything else on the menu. Don't leave without taking home a loaf of bread or one of the spectacular desserts!

While my husband & I were visiting his father, we decided to venture out in Clarksville & try somewhere new to eat for lunch. We looked online & decided to try Silkes Old World Bread Cafe.

Great variety of German bread. The breads are fresh and well made. The owner is not payiny attention to her business. Bakery dirty and unkept. A disgrace to any German.

Would probably drive a long way for a sandwich and coffee from Silke's - it's worth it. Genuine German bakery with a big menu, including classic Rubén. Best ever. Cake cabinet looked too tempting, so succumbed to a hunk of Bee Sting. Coffee was best I've had in two weeks in United States. Service was fast and sassy. These gals... More

it's soon good here. German bakery, everything is fresh and delish. European style. Soups, pizzas, sandwiches, great breads, soup bowls. And the desserts....stay away dieters. Fine tasting food and great informal place. Recently expanded. Christmas time is the best for their goodies.

The quality of the food they serve was great! You could taste the authentic foods. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the cakes. They were not loaded with sugar and was a great treat.

I was delighted to find this place. The breakfast choices are delicious, the people are friendly and they even have vegan options (my son loved the pizza). The poppy seed cheese sticks are worth the trip.
