Clifton's Brookdale Cafeteria - this site has been open since 1933. The Art Deco sidewalk still attracts art and architectual lovers of Historic Broadway.

Check out! How the cashier remembers all the prices is beyond me. But she's accurate, fast and friendly. The motto at Clifton's - everyone is family. Clifton's gives away countless meals each year to those who can't pay... that's been the policy siince they opened their doors during the Depression.

It's a retro weekend. Clifton's has the feel of a 1950's episode of Daniel Boone - a homespun feeling with heaping serving of friendliness.
