This has got to be a first for New York! A cafe on Fifth Avenue overlooking Central Park with good coffee and home made cakes. The Heavenly Rest Stop is part of The Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest at 5th and 90th and is definitely worth stopping for. Ironically we had just filled our souls with the sight of Magnolia blossom in the nearby Conservatory Gardens, and then decided it was time for some physical nourishment as well. So the church hit the spot with coffee and real apple crumble. Buttery, caramelized cinnamon apples that by sheer proximity, had to be good for you. Apparently everything offered by the cafe is home made and Sean is already planning next time for the lemon tart. So when you hear the church bells on Sunday, don’t hesitate!
