Clifton's Cafeteria

Local nameClifton's Cafeteria
LocationLos Angeles, United States

Clifton's Cafeteria, once part of a chain of eight Clifton's restaurants, is the oldest surviving cafeteria-style eatery in Los Angeles and the largest public cafeteria in the world. Founded in 1931 by Clifford Clinton, the design of the restaurants included exotic decor and facades that were "kitschy and theatrical", and would eventually include multi-story fake redwood trees, stuffed lions, neon plants, and a petrified wood bar. Some considered Clifton's as a precursor to the first tiki bars.
