Picture it. It’s 11 a.m. The coffee is wearing off. It’s too early for lunch but you want a little something. What to do? Well, meet one of Britain’s most perfect solutions: Elevenses (pronounced: Eleven-zees)!
Elevenses is a traditional little mid-morning snack, complete with tea and often something sweet like a biscuit (translation: cookie), iced bun or slice of cake. Just a little something to get you over the hump until lunchtime. It’s a little respite that the Brits take seriously.
