My memorie is from the mid 50's..I was a scout and our troup dressed in costumes from all over the world. We had so much fun, it was amazing to young girls, and to top it off, there was a treasure chest of toys, that you could get sopmething IF you meal had a colored stick...It was alot of fun, and especially IF your meal had a colored stick ! I have always remembered going there, and, I am glad it is still around. I am taking my grandsons...

ok it may not be what you consider a 5 star,but very good food and reasonable.they have people working there that are as old as some of the customers.dollar for dollar you should not bitch about.if you dont like it go to afancy reasturant where everything is ala carte and you can eat 1 meal for less than a 150.00 dollars,and leave hungry.

Just moved here from CT and thought the previous reviews made it sound worth going. It was an experience for sure... between the odd wilderness decor and the serenading mexican guitarist it definitely goes on my list of strange places to eat. The food is inexpensive but I wouldn't call it healthy. A lot of fried foods, pies, and puddings. It was okay, but probably wouldn't go again.

Such a great place in downtown LA. Fun to pick your own food (but it can add up to keep a watch on the prices!!). Homecooked faves and tons of desserts! I love its nostalgic place in LA and I hope it stays for another 50+ years!

I am so glad that this cafeteria is still open. I love the fact that they have not renovated it, I love the look of it, its dated back to the 40's. Thats what makes it original. The details inside the restaurant are interesting to look at. There are at least two floors for seating that are still open; I believe it's originally 3 floors or 4. My Mom used to take us to eat there back in the early 80's when I was little. Please support Cliftons, its is one of the many places on Broadway street that have been there the longest between the beat up clothing stores that surround it. Pay attention to the detail on the pavement that surrounds the entrance.

Food is kind of bland but overall ok (I've been here twice), prices are reasonable, the main thing here is the decor (woods-lodge style dating to the 1940's), its worth it to go here at least once just to see
