Depression–Era Drug Store A Spot For Soup, Salad, Sandwich

Clifton – Part of a Main Street renaissance, Somethin's Brewing has quickly turned into a downtown destination for lunch and gourmet coffee.

Owner Deborah Crockett, longtime operator of Videos Tonite, refurbished the natural stone building, which was constructed early in the previous century, and began serving customers on November 2.

The lunchroom is open from 11 a.m. To 2 p.m. and features deliveries in town while serving coffee, tea and smoothies from 7 a.m. To 5 p.m.

The long-time owner of Videos Tonite, Mrs. Crockett and Manager Stevie Alvarez may be reached at 254-675-7798 for advance reservations or orders.

Visitors are encouraged to write their names and other graffiti on chalkboards on the walls.

Many generations of Cliftonians have had their hair cut in the barber shop next door, met for coffee and sodas following exhibitions at the Cliftex Theater, and bought newspapers and magazines in the Town Pharmacy, which was operated by Mr. and Mrs. W.A. Wegner from 1933 to 1988.

Home made soups include Southwestern potato, chicken enchilada and cheese broccoli. Cappucino, espresso and regular drip grind coffees in dozens of flavors are featured, as well as smoothies and Italian ices.
