A quick intro to our Bakery

A December morning at Silke's

Thank you to The Leaf Chronicle for this article on out Cafe's 10th Birthday

"This place is amazing. Fresh, friendly and delicious. I could eat here everyday and probably never tire from it.."

        Katey Kirkpatrick, customer

"One of my favorite places in Clarksville! You must try the Amaretto truffles and the Cajun Turkey sandwich. Delish!!"

        Ariel Anderson, customer

"Seriously, holy cripes this place is amazing! The service was phenomenal; the cashier even asked if my child wanted free lady fingers! You do not find that service anywhere. Then we went to the deli and had even more remarkable service. Definitely worth the trip from Paducah once a month."

       Christina Pfeiffer, customer

"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!"

             Linda Wilson Farris, customer

"I just drove 3 hours and 10 minutes from Memphis just to bring my daughter and neice here for the best experience in food and atmosphere! We will be making this a tradition! Thank you all and Merry Christmas"

                  Roxie Ann Willis, customer

"Had an amazing lunch today with my sister and mother.I recently went vegan and was thrilled to see the variety of vegan-friendly goodies! Went with a vegan burger, side salad, and Silke's Old World Blend. Everything tasted absolutely phenomenal! Silke's has a very warming atmosphere and is beautifully decorated. I'd also love to mention how friendly everyone is. Many thanks to the lovely ladies that helped us today! Best customer service I've had in ages! I left more than satisfied and will definitely be coming back often."

                  Josh Craig, customer

"IMy husband and I tried Silke's for the first time this morning after having some of their bread at the Beachaven Winery in town. We had the most amazing experience. The food was excellent and unique, and it was so fun to walk down to the bakery after eating in the deli area. However, the best part about this place is the atmosphere. Every single employee was so friendly and welcoming; it was easy to see how much they enjoyed working there. We also ran into some regulars who were German as well, and they gave us some great recommendations for breakfast. This is my new favorite place in Clarksville, and I can't wait to go back."

                  Molly Marietta, customer

"Best bread in Clarksville. Nestled in a charming place in old Clarksville, Silke's provides an old world charm with German ancestry. Their baked good range from specialty breads to cakes and muffins. The best cake is the black Forrest. Or for you German speakers.... Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte."

         Joell Tassin Davis, customer

"Silke's is the VERY best German restaurant/Deli/Bakery!! Their food is old world authentic and absolutely tasty!! I am not a vegan by no means of the world but I will tell you that their vegan muffins and whatnot are better than the regular ones! If you go to only one place in town, Silke's should be it!! Their breads and desserts are made fresh daily and on a certain schedule. All you have to do is stop by and pick up a menu and it has the days with types of breads they put out!"
