Stopped here for lunch with my family while killing time in Clarksville. My wife and I had BLT sandwiches and German Potato Salad. The bread on the sandwich was a bit thin, which made it fall apart easily. Other than that, it was excellent. My son had a pepperoni pizza, which he loved. We split a German Meat Plate, which...

Been here a number of times, primarily to buy a loaf of bread. Tried their Schnitzel sandwich for lunch today. Good taste, but extremely dry.

The reuben is fresh and tasty and I really enjoy the fresh bread. Having lived in Germany, we were looking for a place that reminded us of the cafes in Ansbach. I have to say that the rolls are much better than the bread you can buy in most restaurants or stores. However, they are not close to the real... More

The food and bakery items are amazing. The menu is varied and is always great. My favorite is the brie and apple sandwich with warm potato salad. If it's a cold day, the soups are top notch, especially the potato. The servers and cooks are friendly and recognize my family every time. The only negative is that at peak times,... More

You will not find the tastes from Silkes anywhere else close by. When we go we get the meat plate which has a variety. I always get a loaf of fresh artisan bread and a pastry. Must go. They also have German coffee. An herb turkey sandwich that is the beat and a separate deli where you can purchase your... More

It was decades ago that I left Germany. I have fond memories of stopping often at a schnellimbus in the town of Rodalben and getting my usual order of currywurst, pommes frites, and a mezzo mix. I have tried over the years to find a currywurst that tasted as good. This past week I finally found it here. I also... More

This should be the #1 restaurant in Clarksville and surrounding areas. We actually travel to Clarksville from Nashville just to eat here. They supply the fresh bread for Mitchell's Deli. In Clarksville, there is a restaurant with seating and a separate deli next door. Friendly, patient staff. Order at the counter and the food will be brought to you. Free... More
