The Chesterfield Palm Beach takes guests on a daily journey to a time and place of quiet etiquette and sublime refinement with its Afternoon Tea; served daily from 3-5pm.
“Afternoon tea, is a small meal snack typically eaten between 2pm and 5pm. The custom of afternoon tea originated in England in the 1840s. At the time, the various classes in England had a divergence in their eating habits. The upper classes typically ate lunch at about midday and dinner at 8:00 pm or later, while the lower classes ate dinner at about 11:00 am and then a light supper at around 7:00 pm. For both groups, afternoon tea filled a gap in the meals.”
“High tea is an early evening meal, typically eaten between 5pm and 7pm. High tea typically consists of a hot dish such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, or macaroni cheese, followed by cakes and bread, butter and jam.”
