Lunch near the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (Prospect Park)

I'm headed home this weekend for Mother's Day and I suggested to my mom that we should make a trip to the BBG together. Enjoy the nice weather and the cherry blossoms. I won't be able to take her out to dinner, but perhaps a nearby lunch would be nice?

Any good suggestions? Preferably a place that isn't too loud/busy on a Saturday.
It might be a late-ish meal.
My mom isn't too picky about food but I'd like it to be something she doesn't eat just any day.
Nothing too "fancy" or too hip/trendy because I want her to feel comfortable, you know?
Simple food is fine, she has an event to go to in the evening.

Thanks for your input!
