Where to Eat in Scottsdale AZ: Cafe Bink

Patio Dining Cafe Bink Scottsdale Carefree AZ

I have been a fan of Binkley’s in Cave Creek for many years and recently had the opportunity to visit its “little sister” restaurant in Carefree called Cafe Bink.

Cafe Bink is great in that you get to experience all of Chef Kevin Binkley and team’s great food and flavors, but in a more casual and less expensive setting.

We were for lunch and had a great meal. Our server recommended the fries and said they were a favorite item among Cafe Bink diners. He was correct – the fries were outstanding. They were super crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. (My guess is that they were fried a few times to get that level of crispiness?) The fries come with three dipping sauceCafe Bink bistro Scottsdale Carefree AZs – truffle ketchup,  a green herb sauce and an aioli. They were all tasty but the green herb sauce was my personal favorite.

We then each had a cup of the Wild Mushroom Soup which was made with clamshell mushrooms and leeks. It was delicious and satisfying. Finally, we split a Chopped Salad, that had a ton of ingredients mixed in including chives, feta, radicchio, egg, avocado, chicken, bacon and more. It was quite tasty and a perfect way to finish off our meal.

Other lunch offerings at Cafe Bink include many sandwich and burger options, different salad choices, as well as entrees like trout, pasta and steak frites.

Cafe Bink is open for lunch and dinner as well as Sunday Brunch. They also have happy hour specials every day from 3-5PM.

If you find yourself looking for a great lunch or dinner in North Scottsdale or Carefree, head over to Cafe Bink.

    […] Cafe Bink – The fries at Cafe Bink are also outstanding. They come wrapped in a paper cone and are crispy and delicious outside and tender inside.
