Come October, observing beautiful greenery and sniffing flowers at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden will be join by a third and even more enjoyable sensation: Shoving food into your face!

Eater is reporting that the BBG’s soon-to-be-reopened cafe will overlook Lily Pool Terrace and be named Yellow Magnolia Cafe. Nightingale 9 and Wilma Jean owner Robert Newton will spearhead the project, in partnership with Patina Restaurant Group to serve breakfast and lunch only with a very appropriate-for-the-setting “vegetable focus,” with many ingredients even being sourced straight out of its backyard.

Yellow Magnolia Cafe will operate year-round (good news for those of us who enjoy a contemplative trudge through empty, snowy fields in February) with a seasonal menu inspired by whatever’s in bloom at the moment. Now, if only the Flatbush Avenue entrance construction could just hurry up a bit.
