18. Ah. Here we are:
In the United Kingdom and some other Commonwealth Realms, elevenses is a snack that is similar to afternoon tea, but eaten in the morning.<1> It is generally less savoury than brunch, and might consist of some cake or biscuits with a cup of tea or coffee. The name refers to the time of day that it is taken: around 11 am. The word "elevenses" is seen as a little old fashioned.<1>

In this case biscuits are (of course) not the round flour things your mama made. They're 'cookies'.
