Finney’s Cafeteria/The Chocolate Shoppe (Los Angeles, California)(Los Angeles, California)

Landmarked interior designed by noted Arts and Crafts tilemaker Ernest A. Batchelder in 1914 (the building was constructed in 1898). The chocolatey, Dutch motif tiles were for a space conversion called the Chocolate Shoppe. The soda shop was later converted into a cafeteria by Samuel Finney. Today, the largest collection of tiles by Batchelder has been obscured by lighting fixtures, security doors, and shopping arcade.
