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.

We had a carafe of Sauvignon Blanc a ham sandwich and a fish sandwich. The ham was exquisite house made with crispy onions. I would definitely order again.

We love Cafe Bink. Stay near Troon and make the drive for lunch after a hike or for dinner. Both great. Service excellent and food is terrific!

We heard there was a new chef/part owner at what we consider a neighborhood rsstaurant that we USED to frequent, but had stopped going to due to spotty service and a deteriorating food quality. Decided to try the "Tasting Menu" served at the bar on Fr/Sa nites, and available only by reservation, and we now have a new favorite food experience. Although the regular menu for table service is fairly casual, Chef Justin offers a weekly tasting menu that is fabulously creative, and every bite was a delectable treat. The menu changes weekly and there are wine pairings, and we were totally WOWED! For our tasting, the tempura veggies with dill dipping sauce had the lightest batter ever, and the veggies were crisp and yummy; the bacon vinaigrette on the salad was perfect; the butternut squash soup with maple foam and crisp pepitas a masterful combination of sweet/salty/savory/crispy; the pork entree with pears remarkably tender and lick-the-plate worthy. We thought we had no room for desert, but ate every bite and licked our lips. What a wonderful and truly unexpected experience!!!

It was a birthday dinner. Unfortunately, Cafe Bink did not acknowledge the special occasion. In the past they have.

I love this place. Always amazing food, great ambiance (sitting outside) and very friendly staff. Food and service does not happen quickly so if you have places to be pick another joint. But, if you are able to just relax and enjoy a great conversation while you wait it’s worth it.

Creative and fresh foods served on a patio looking at the mountains. We went for brunch to celebrate a birthday. All decided to order off the lunch menu. The $12 mimosa with 1 cent refills are a steal. Two of my dining companions had the fish sandwich and were very happy campers. The large portion of lightly battered, flaky cod was served on a delicious, fresh cahallah roll. They chose the house made potato chips as the side and ate every one. I chose the Fall inspired arugula salad topped with fresh, chunky, flavorful chicken salad. The flavor combination was perfect! Spouse chose the beets with chick salad on top. The knowledgeable server questioned this decision and described the beets in detail. Spouse should have listened as it was not a good mix of flavors. All the food was very good. Only complaint would be the bees that prevented customers from sitting at several of the open tables. Service started off good but became very slow as business picked up. We were told that one of the servers failed to show up for work. I can honestly say that if it wasn't a 45 min drive to get to Cafe Bink that I would make it back on a regular basis.

Food was okay. Chicken tortilla soup is mostly broth and tortilla strips. Very watery and barely any chicken. Flavor was fine. Cafe Zupa soup is twice as good, 1/2 the price.

Patio is lovely with a great view of the mountains. The brunch menu was limited but lunch was also served. Food was good and pressed coffee was fantastic.
