Good Winter Food and Patisseries/bakeries Upper East Side?

I'm taking the family to Manhattan this weekend to do our usual Xmas spiel: the tree, letting the kids rock climb in Central Park, etc. Looking for a nice cozy place to get good stick to your ribs food for not-so-much money (think pub or southern/soul food) and a patisserie or bakery to get the kids wound up on a fancy sugar high.

      Thanks. Anything a little further south? Say the 50's-70's?

        As for a good bakery, there's Financier Patisserie at 54th & 2nd Ave. They do serve light lunch fare like soups, salads, and sandwiches as well.

        As for hearty fare around Midtown East to the mid-UES, I can't think of any around the area.
