LA Weekly's Description
Greenery is plentiful in this 75-year-old family-run cafeteria, which is designed to look like Brookdale, the owner's favorite childhood destination in Northern California. The lodge-esque restaurant's signature dishes include roast turkey and roast beef dinner plates. And for dessert: old fashioned chocolate pudding.
Tips from foursquare
Don't miss the museum on the third floor. Also, be sure to check out the chapel and push the button inside to hear Clifton's founder Clifford Clinton read a parable about redwood trees to you.
Clifton's is known for its cafeteria-style food and quirky decor, but don't forget that they've got a bakery for to-go pies and pastries.
Such an odd place. I love to get dessert here and people watch.
Go to Cliftons for a 1940's kitch time-warp and classic to-die-for cafeteria faire. Your oasis if you work downtown.
because if you live in L.A. and you've never been to Clifton's you can't say you really live in L.A.
