Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This vegetable-focused cafe can be found nestled amongst the verdant foliage of Brooklyn Botanic Garden. It's named after one of the hybrid magnolias that the garden has been famous for producing since the 1950s. And the restaurant itself is situated in an old greenhouse, which means it's flooded with light and provides a great view of Lily Pool Terrace.

There are emnus to suit both grown-ups and children, plus a handful of wine, beer and cocktail varieties. If you're popping in for lunch, you can expect upscale salads, sandwiches and burgers, while brunch at the weekends extends to options like challah french toast, Catskills smoked salmon and bibimbap.

Yellow Magnolia Café says
Yellow Magnolia Café is a restaurant that offers modern, vegetable-focused cuisine in a one-of-a-kind setting nestled within Brooklyn Botanic Garden's iconic landscape. Named after the remarkable flower developed by Brooklyn Botanic Garden in 1971, Yellow Magnolia Café is a celebration of its urban garden setting. Designed by David Rockwell, the bright and airy café is built within a renovated greenhouse overlooking the Garden's Lily Pool Terrace.

All cuisine is crafted with seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms and purveyors—an ethos in keeping with the Garden’s longstanding interest in sustainable practices—and menus inspired by Brooklyn's artisanal food movement. Most of the menu is vegetable-focused, with select meat and fish options available, as well as healthy children's menu items, vegan, and gluten-free selections.

Admission to Brooklyn Botanic Garden is required to dine at Yellow Magnolia Café.
