UES Dessert

Are there any good places to go for tea and dessert on the Upper East Side? A place in the 70's would be best, but I'm open to all suggestions as there seems to be a serious lack of cafes or dessert places in this area.

      I love (especially when someone else is paying) Sant Ambroeus on Madison and 77th.

          Oh - that's right - upstairs (for the OP).

            Have not gotten there yet. But do they have a sitting area and is it strictly chocolates?

              I don't know - haven't been either - but the one downtown has a cafe with hot chocolate, cookies and cakes, and maybe also a small savory menu.

          Alice's Tea Cup (I think 64th, between Lex and 3rd)

            Went to Lady M yesterday afternoon on 78th between Madison and Park (just off Madison) delicious Mille Crepe cake, but quite expensive I thought. Our bill was higher than at Payard's about 2 weeks ago!

            Serendipity's has been closed by BOH.

              I'd forgotten about that place! Other places that I've just remembered include EAT - Madison in the low 80s and Pain Quotidien - a little higher up on Madison.

              Serendipity is always an option.

                Bread pudding at Sfoglia is wonderful

                  Payard is the first place that comes to mind - Lexington a block or two north of 72nd Street. It's not open on Sundays though.
