We had a wonderful meal and can recommend the Cosmo Martini, Sloppy Joe, and Artichoke Pasta (spicy). Our server Denise was "top notch." She was attentive without being intrusive. Reservations are recommended.

We decided after spending half an afternoon with friends to enjoy the Happy Hour but did not think about "it is Valentine Day". We ended up at Cafe Bink around 4PM, told that we can happily stay till 6PM but have to clear the table to allow customers with a reservation for Valentine Dinner to sit at a nice and... More

Cafe Bink wants to be good. And if somebody was managing it correctly it would be very good. The recipes are sound (have the excellent warm beet salad that is balanced by grapefruit,mint and tiny peanuts!) but way too much salt is being wielded by a heavy hand in every offering (hello mushroom soup). The servers are nice, but painfully... More

Nothing special. The seating was lined up against a wall/window. All in a row. Average salad. Service was slow.

We have been eating here for years and it is our favorite Resturant in the area. We had dinner there a few days ago and things weren't the same. None of the usual servers were there and that was noticed. The menu is much more limited and not very enticing. The food was good but not exceptional. I hope the... More

This is one of the better restaurants in Carefree. I love the lunches here. Don't miss the sloppy Joe on an onion roll. However, you can't miss with anything on the menu.

A very nice upscale restaurant. Food and service is excellent. Not open for breakfast. I actually love the Sloppy Joe sandwich.

We came for lunch and sat outside. Servers turned on the outside heaters for us. Several in our group ordered the burgers. I ordered a salad

Stopped here to get away from the football madness that was Cave Creek on a Sunday afternoon. Brunch had just wound down and we arrived in time for happy hour menu and beverage prices. I've eaten at other restaurants with the same owner in Greater Phoenix so I had high expectations which were not disappointed. I had their happy hour... More

Heard this place was owned by the same person that owned the very high end Brinkleys ( now closed)in Cave Creek, Az, so gave it a try. Nothing went right from sitting at bar, looking at bartender and 15 minutes to get a glass of wine, order that took what seemed like forever and was just plain awful. Burger less... More
