Foursquare Tips

  • 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.
  • The sidewalk terrazzo in front of Clifton's Cafeteria on Broadway dates back to the thirties and includes representations of SoCal landmarks including City Hall, the Coliseum, and the Tar Pits.
  • 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.
  • Such an odd place. I love to get dessert here and people watch.
  • Great selection of coctails. There is one guy that has moves like M.Jackson-he made my night so much better
  • Awesome atmosphere and good music (think jazz, soul and Motown). Tons of space. Food is great, big portions. Awesome place for a night out! Small food counter in front stays open til 2am
  • This historic place has nice vintage themed evening events and concerts. The food during the day is okay.
  • Any cocktail you can dream
  • Cool vibe going on at the newly Remodeled Clifton's! But just remember, it's Cafeteria food.
  • Super impressed with this funky place. While the drink prices are a little on the high side, this place is awesome. Literally one of the coolest places I've been with multiple bars, floors, and vibes.
  • Looking to dine in a more enchanted eatery? Clifton's Cafeteria has you covered. Centered around a three-story tall tree in the middle of the space, there's plenty to explore during your meal.
  • Super fun place to come and hang out. Bakery on first level. Bar on the second level and swing dancing on the third.
  • Reopened but not like before new set up is horrible!!
  • The vibe was really cool and the fact that it was spacious and looked different from other bars you normally see is why I liked Clifton's Cafeteria.
  • Recently restored piece of Los Angeles history. A forest wonderland-slash-cafeteria in the thick of downtown LA. The food is OK, but there are two bars upstairs. Go to explore and to marvel.
  • Food was literally school cafeteria food... nearly ruined my birthday.
  • the food was tasty..but,lukewarm.Friendly staff!
  • The venue is interesting, location is sketchy.
  • Atmosphere!
  • It's the greatest place you will never want to go back to. But hey... At least you can say you went.
