Just coming from Germany, was very disappointed with their food and bread. The Brochen is nothing like true German Brotchen. The food was over priced, and the Curry Wurst was not a German Curry Wurst at all. Will not go back.

Just as we remembered from many years ago, but now with a second building just for the bread store. DIdn't realize this when we went into the restaurant;). They did have a few selections of breads there and we picked up an amazing sourdough for French toast and some Bavarian pretzels. But the big treat we wanted was the Bee... More

They have wonderful cakes, the Black Forest cake is my favorite, if you see it under the counter, don't wait get it before it's gone! Many choices for a breakfast or lunch or early dinner. Everything is alway fresh and good. Yes you can get brats and schnitzel, but my favorite sandwich is the Rueben! My new favorite maybe the... More

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
