  • 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.
  • Being here is like being transported to another time and place. The decor inside is amazing and feels so cool for hanging out and drinking. I didnt try any of the food but will next time!
  • There might be a time machine at the front doors, because youre taken to comfort food heaven that just doesnt exist any place else. Highly recommended.
  • Super weird but fun place--check out all the levels. Plenty of seating, couches and tables for groups!
  • Ask nicely and they might let you just the bathroom for free. There's none nearby.
  • I don't know what exactly this place is, but it's one of my most favorite places in the world. A giant, three-story tall tree, taxidermy everywhere, cafeteria food (with jello) and a club.
  • You haven't been to a place quite like this. So fun. Make time to wander around. The food is actually great too. Secret tip: Wear some decent clothes and push on the mirror.
  • The food is amazing. The bars are top notch. The decor is fun and inviting. The staff are well-trained and professional.
  • spunky, fun, and eclectic, this is everything perfect about downtown, rolled into one monster building. turkey plates are BOMB.
  • 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
  • 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!!
