I used enjoy afternoon tea at Lavender and Lace with my girlfriends when I lived in St. Petersburg and loved every minute of the experience. The hosts are wonderful and attentive, the food is fabulous. I moved to Alaska so whenever I go to the Tampa area I opp out to L and L for a good cuppa and yummy food. I was here last summer and it's just as good as ever! I highly recommend going out for lunch or rounding up a bunch of friends and heading out for a great afternoon tea. The tea was piping hot, just as it should be!!!
