New ownership has changed the menu. They removed several great dishes, changed others (not for the better) and increased prices. This used to be one of our favorite places but sadly we won’t be returning.
Hadn't been there in years even tho it's nearby. 4 of us shared 5 appetizers and muscles. Everything was great. Loved the freshly made, pulled mozzarella. Adequate wine by the glass choices. Will definitely go again soon.
Food was very good...menu very limited. Outside table was great
Service was inconsistent and not what we expected. Had to ask for cocktails the first time then took for ever to get our waitress to ask about a second round..... really. Could be better!!
Filet was dry and over cook. Waitnress wasn’t great and a little rude
As always, a top quality restaurant with delicious food and excellent service. Donna is a top notch waitress.
Always a good dining experience. Food and service excellent
Service, food , ambience outstanding
We have dined at Cafe Bink many times over the past two years. When we dined there last week, we were disappointed with the food.....it was well below what we have been used and expected.
A must go back and sample much more of the menu The fish entree and sloppy joe were so delicious.
We went here due to Café Bink making the Phx New Times 9 best places for brunch and because it was on the north end of the valley. It was pretty good. The menu for brunch is pretty limited. One of my brother's and I had the Pork Green Chile with two sunny side eggs and potatoes. Very tasty and a very large portion of the pork. My other brother had the omelet which he said was good and my sister had the classic breakfast of bacon, eggs, toast and potatoes. Everyone enjoyed but I can't see myself making it a point to go back. The service was very nice. It was not very busy, so it was quiet. It's a very small place and it seemed like the food was very fresh.
Their fry chicken with its buttermilk coating is to die for. I could eat it daily!
Speical 50th Anniversary meal for my wife and me along with 3 neighbors. Everyone loved the meal and great service....
Shared chicken liver mousse, Caesar salad, then enjoyed a trout entree (best ever) and the chicken entree with a lovely Emeritus pinot noir recommended by Tori. Awesome dinner!
While the atmosphere wasn’t exactly as romantic as I hoped for an anniversary (and it was too chilly for us to comfortably sit in the quieter outdoor seating), we were overjoyed at the food quality and flavor of this casual and friendly neighborhood bar/bistro we stumbled upon during our vacation. Every selection we chose was delicious. My husband said the hamburger he picked was the best he’d ever had, and our server was helpful and friendly. I’d be frequenting Cafe Bink if it was in my neighborhood!
We make an effort to dine here whenever we are in town and we enjoy every visit.
They're bolognese with creamy polenta is out of this world.
The only complaint is the entree came out before salads.
The food was tasty and the service was friendly but could use a little training. Had to ask for silver ware and to have the table cleaned between enter and dessert. Worth a visit.
Excellent in every aspect. We are very exited to have new owner and chef Branden
Consistently excellent experience. Amy does a fabulous job with an interesting menu and intimate outdoor space.
We love eating at Cafe Bink! We've never been disappointed, and the Valentine's Day special meal with wine tasting was beyond wonderful! We also love the wait staff as they are SO friendly and remember you!
Our latest trip to Cafe Bink was for Valentine's Day, and let me say it was AMAZING!!! A perfect lobster salad, a fantastic cod/orzo dish that was to die for and Chateaubriand with potatoes that were out of this world!
Great food with a bit of 'twist'. Had the chicken salad sandwich and roasted pork sandwich with their wonderful fries. Delish!
Great food and service. A favorite dining spot for us every year when we visit Az. apple cranberry co bbler was fantastic
Tuesday is Mexican night and always fun. Interesting cocktails and food options.
We love to sit at the bar - talk to the staff & watch the food preparation in the open kitchen! We love the “neighborhood” bar/restaurant feel every time we go for dinner or sometimes just a drink! The food is always reliable! So is the service!
Didn’t have a table ready, even though there were open tables and the food was only fair.
Took inlaws for anniversary. First time I went for brunch. The Huevos Rancheros which were excellent. My wife had the Benedict which looked amazing!!
Our trip to Bink’s in Carefree. Great food and service!
Best battered cod outside of Alaska! The dish is fresh, light and crispy. The green tomato relish on the bottom is a tangy, tart and a perfect pair for the cod. Match the fish with their delicious fries and you’ll be in heaven. But don’t stop there - make sure to try the vegetables sides which are almost a meal by themselves. Love Tequila Tuesday as well. Housemade guacamole is fresh and full of flavor.
Great food-especially the Mac-n-Cheese. Corn muffins with honey butter are out of this world!!
Went to Cafe Bink for a quick lunch before some shopping for art in Carefree. The servers seemed overwhelmed that day and did mention that it was busier than normal, but there were still lots of seats available, so they may be a bit understaffed. Hard to get more tea, water. Food delicious when it finally arrived. Tables really close together, so had to listen to two other conversations around me. I would choose to go somewhere else.
Always love cafe bink! Great tasting menus! Great service! One of our favorites!
Once more we were not disappointed in Cafe Bink. There is new life here and we are loving it.
Love Cafe Bink, incredible food creatively prepared in a simple way with the freshest local ingredients and always consistently perfect. The French Fries are a must to be shared...out of this world! A slice of France with a California cuisine touch.
Great food. Wonderful waitress. Always enjoy Cafe Bink.
Just great food! Fun and great outside views. Yes
The food was fabulous as always, It the service was extremely disappointing. We were there with 2 friends on a Thursday night. There were 2 other tables occupied when we arrived, and halfway through our meal we were the only people there. Our waiter was inattentive. We had to call him over to take our order. He served our second course before clearing the dirty dishes from our first course. When he did come to our table, he spoke only when spoken to. He was on his phone behind the bar. Finally a customer came and sat at the bar, and our waiter spent the rest of the night talking to him.
The rest of the staff had nothing to do, so they were scrubbing the hoods over the stove with soapy water. We watched as it dropped down. Was it on our food? We couldn’t see.
We love the food and will return to hopefully see that the service has returned to what we have always expected from Cafe Bink.
Consistent great service and quality food. Awesome happy hour!
Great patio table by the fire. We had a good evening.
The food was well prepared and very tasty, the wait staff was FAB U LOUS!!! Very accommodating and EXTREMELY friendly!!! Hostess left a little to be desired though...
