Re:cliftons cafeteria-LA GEM, But Hurry
Had lunch at Clifton's several Sundays ago. Packed to the rafters, with quite a line waiting. Glad to see the old girl still has some life in her.
The crowd was more vibrant than expected for such an old place in not the best location. Lots of old regulars, but younger people too, as well as families with children, all of these from wide range of ethnic groups. That bodes well for Clifton's.
Totally agree with Californyguy that the place needs freshening. Not a complete overall, but just seeing that the environment is as welcoming as possible.
And the food? No complaints there, except serve some more gravy with the turkey, please.
As I mentioned elsewhere, do not park east of Clifton's, especially at night. Terrible skid road.
