Penny University food ideas for a group?

Penny Universities began in the 18th century and were places that socialites could go, pay a penny to enter then drink coffee and have access to all kinds of news and gossip. We are doing a mock penny university in my history course and we are being encouraged to bring in treats for our fellow students. The only information I find says that they just drank coffee. What kinds of treats could I make to share with the class?

    Biscotti and Dried Ginger Snaps, were old world treats, that you could carry in your pockets, and still be good.

    You could make cookies and frosting and maybe cupcakes with juice.
