Silke's is a gem! There's something on the menu for every taste, from meat and potatoes to picky vegetarian. I've visited several times and enjoyed everything I've ordered (same can be said for my husband and father). Be sure to save room for some of their homemade desserts!

Found Silkes by accident today and boy was I glad we did. The food is great and the staff is very friendly. Deli type sandwiches, salads and pizza with all fresh and homemade ingredients. The desserts you just have to experience. I recommend dessert first so you are sure to have room!

We were visiting family in Clarksville who took us here for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious and fresh (they make their own breads and pastries, and the soup is fantastic). They have tons of vegetarian options and coffee drinks. We ordered the bratwurst combo, chicken salad sandwich, Mediterranean grilled cheese, Reuben, pizza, Mediterranean salad, and soups... More

When you want authentic German breads this is the place to get them. I needed some gifts for a group of friends. Got some of their raisin bread and the group still can't stop talking about how good it was.

Silkes is a favorite place in Clarksville for authentic German style foods such as schnitzel, curry wurst, and German style potato salad. It is always a treat to eat-in or get the food to-go. Place your order at the counter and carry to your table or carry-out. Located on College Street the location is convenient. You will not be disappointed... More

We were in town exploring housing options and stopped in at Silkes for brunch based on the recommendation of some coworkers. This place is certainly unique with the cafe and bakery. They specialize in German foods so I went with one of their breakfast selections. It was a traditional German breakfast of meats and cheeses, which was done rather well.... More

I absolutely love this place. Their tomato basil soup is excellent. The atmosphere of the little, unique restaurant is one of a kind. They also have a kiddie corner where your kids can enjoy the experience too
