1. Nima’s Pizzeria
Nima’s Pizzeria, Clifton Springs NY
Nima’s Pizzeria is the best spot for a slice of pizza in town. The staff at Main Street Arts eat there on a weekly basis (At a minimum, possibly more if we’re being honest). Nima’s has been a member of the Clifton Springs community for the past twenty years and is well-deserving of their great reputation for high quality slices at low prices. Stop by for a quick lunch, or just grab a soda or snack for your walk down Main Street. After your lunch drop by Clifton Springs Hardware to pick up an ice cream bar or frozen treat!

Stop by the Warfield’s Bakery for some of their famous freshly baked bread.
