Afternoon tea service Palm Beach to SoBe (or) somewhere to buy scones and clotted cream

I was thinking for the royal wedding I would like to have a tea party, so I would like to order it to go. My first thought was the Ritz Carlton, but they have disontinued their tea service.

Is there anywhere between Palm Beach and SoBe that I can get tea pastries and sandwiches?

        lol. I googled before I posted and found that website, unforch most of the places listed are out of business.

        This one is updated

    2. Check out Hidden Tea Secrets in Parkland. I don't have much to compare it to, but I thought the tea and food were good. Plus, there are usually coupons for them on

      Hidden Tea Secrets
      6682 Parkside Dr, Parkland, FL 33067

      1. we are going to do an English breakfast at around 6am and watch the wedding at home since it starts at 6am EST.
        I have not seen scones and clotted cream in S Fla, the cream they sell at the British Depot is not pleasant so I think it might be better to make whipped heavy cream instead and have scones at home. Scones are easy to make and you can get good strawberry jam (Bonne Mamman is good).

          Which is the best British Shop in South Florida?
          British Depot - Fort Lauderdale
          British Marketplace - Davie
          Pondhoppers - Fort Lauderdale

            I tend to go to the British Depot in Lake Worth which is a little closer but they are not very friendly and the store is fairly small and not always well stocked. There is also a pub in Jupiter called, I think, the Queen Anne, that has a very small store. Plenty of online options for British goods too.

              Biltmore Hotel: One of the few remaining Miami locales offering traditional English afternoon tea, the Biltmore is arguably the most elegant venue, with its soaring vaulted ceiling, magnificent lobby and majestically mantled fireplace. The refreshing repast is served weekdays from 3 to 6 pm and is complemented by the music of an accomplished classical guitarist. (Their description but I saw it the other day!)

              During the holiday season guests can expect themed pastries.
