Tea time at this quaint, English-style tearoom resembles the rigid rules you would follow in England. First, be prepared to be served on your right and hold your teacup on your left hand. Servers usually will place three-tiered trays with savories, scones and sweets. They're usually passed around the table in that order. This tearoom can accommodate a modest number of 30 guests. Call in advance because the establishment is by reservation only.

For those looking for a high-brow way to spend the afternoon, how about English tea at the Biltmore's lobby as an "accomplished" classical guitarist performs. The hotel is a historic South Florida icon whose tower is landmark. The vaulted ceiling and majestic mantled fireplace provides all the features that would resemble England's finest tearooms. Tea is served at 3 and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in the hotel lobby.
