Cliftons: "Cafeteria food" Clifton's Cafeteria Tip by malianrob

Clifton's Cafeteria, Los Angeles: 4 reviews and 8 photos

This place has been around since the 1930's. It was opened by Clifford Clinton.The place is decorated in a redwood forest theme, with waterfalls and fountains. It was also very big during the depression.
I guess this is how hoetown buffet got started:)
I am not sure how long they are opened until because i usually come for breakfast or lunch. Even at breakfast hours they already have the prime rib and mashed potatoes ready! They have tons of deserts, breads, and from what i could tell, mostly American and Mexican foods.
The service is good, fast and friendly!
