DINE FREE UNLESS DELIGHTED
This 200 page book delves into the rich and controversial past of Clifton's Cafeteria, in which dutiful service to humanity and ostentatious kitsch go hand in hand. Built in 1931 with an extravagant redwood themed interior, the cafeteria is the sole survivor of a once larger chain owned by Clifford Clinton who had aspirations of curing world hunger. His crusade was not without obstacles, however. Though the cafeteria was secular, Clinton's religious, do-good attitude conflicted greatly with the highly corrupt governmental system of 1930s Los Angeles. From police corruption, bombings, and strikes, Clifton's Cafeteria's history is just as colorful as its interior. Today the cafeteria still operates under the golden rule of "Dine Free Unless Delighted".
