A December morning at Silke's


"Eating at Silke's Old World Breads and Cafe' is always a treat. I enter feeling hungry and leave feeling happy. It isn't offered on the menu, but if you let yourself soak it all in you'll get a free side of happiness with food."

         Stacy Leiser/The Leaf-Chronicle

"This is a great place to get a sandwich, a pizza, or hot soup. You can get fresh bread and even look at local artist work while you are there."

        David Smith, customer and Artist

"Silke's is like going home to Germany for lunch, I couldn't think of a better place to go."                 Maria Morrow, customer

"I ate at Silke's place for the first time this past Thursday, and I was so wonderfully surprised...Food was out of this world, and since I'm orig. from Germany, I purchased enough from the bakery to last me a while, but be assured, I make the hour drive again soon for a return visit....also, the staff is absolutely delightful....:)"

                  Katharina Webb, customer

"Silke's is one of the very few restaurants in Clarksville that are truly worth every penny I spend there. Her recipes are fresh and unique while still sticking to her German heritage. The employees at Silke's are always delightful and smiling. The decor is very smartly done- offering local artists a venue in which to sell their work while decking the walls with glorious art of varying styles. But my favorite thing about dining at Silke's is the vast vegetarian menu. I try to eat here as often as I can!"
