Delicious brekky with friends...

My sister said that we "had to" go to BB&TLT for breakfast while I was up in Townsville so we called in for brunch on the 21/11. Started off with a latte that wasn't the best so I was a little worried about what was to follow with the food - I shouldn't have as it was delicious! BIG servings... read more

Querky interior, staff are welcoming and lovely. Fantastic menu, food is full of flavour and the coffee is a beautiful blend. We ate here a few times during our stay.

We recently returned to this establishment following a two year hiatus. The standout here was the extensive wait for food, which at just under an hour is beyond comprehensible when only 3 other tables were waiting for their meals. The food was generous in portions as expected however the food was mediocre (overcooked haloumi) but devoured as we were starving... More

My family and I went to Betty Blue for a breakfast birthday celebration. I was hoping it was going to be a great morning with lots of great memories to be had but I now wish we chose somewhere else to go. There were five of us and we walked in together. To start off with not one staff member... More

Fantastic spot for a breakfast that will keep you satisfied throughout the day. I got the smoked salmon with poached eggs and my husband got the savoury scramble. Quality food and definitely a place to visit if you want to spoil yourself.

The portions are massive and the food is absolutely delicious. Definitely the best location to eat breakfast in Townsville! They don't have table service which isn't ideal, but can be par for the course in Townsville.

Amazing food in a quirky setting. I would highly recommend for breakfast, every time we have visited the food has been of a consistently high standard. They even have chalkboard tables which make waiting a breeze, plenty of instagram opportunities

A quaint little cafe with a fairly diverse menu. Expensive in some respects take your appetite the portions are generous - maybe not always healthy! It's not open every day of the week so it can be difficult to get a table. This is picture of my waffles with macadamia icecream and honeycomb crumble.

Breakfast should be light and most importantly healthy. The food portions are gigantic and everything is soaked in butter or oil. It was hard for me to eat anymore than half the serve. I left feeling so full. I don't think it was anything special. I also think it;s expensive.
