Good variety of menu items. Fresh baked goods are main attraction. Nice atmosphere for conversation and relaxation. Plenty of seating.

Please note to order first then find a table. I was confused and noticed I wasn't the only one: ) Great, fresh, authentic food. The seating could be better but with food so good I'll deal with it!( or get it to go )

We buy sandwiches and cake to take back to our motel to eat when we travel through the Clarksville, TN area. Their deli is great and staff is very helpful.

With great bread as a base, you can't go wrong with either sandwiches or pizzas, and the desserts? Die haben in Himmel gebäckt.

We stopped by the bakery and did not eat at the restaurant. I purchased some rolls for our sandwiches that I was going to make at the lake. What fantastic bread!

This is a fantastic restaurant if you know what you are in for. It is the best place in Clarksville to get authentic German food. Go there for the experience, but do not go expecting it to be 'typical'. You enter the restaurant and order before sitting. The feel of the restaurant is that of an indoor-picnic. There is a... More

Thank you tripadvisor for pointing me in the right direction! The broetchen was just like the rolls I'd get from the bakery in my grandma's hometown. The bread if wonderful, the desserts are beautiful and just as tasty! They even have gluten-free options. If you're looking for something different, something homemade, this is a gem of a place to go!
