Having visited pretty much all the breakfast places in Townsville, this one beats them all...by far. Great food and huge servings. The menu is fresh and different from others.

The food is great with an extensive and interesting menu. Servings are generous, presentation is appealing and the meals arrived promptly. Unfortunately the coffee was awful. Please get some barister training!!! The waitress was disinterested and offhand at first then becoming assertively rude telling us to order quickly. This is the third time we have been to Betty Blue and... More

I haven't visited for a while as have been overseas but I miss this place as a great brunch, especially post night shifts! It is a little on the expensive side, but the servings are large and I have never been disappointed. You could argue the little place is too small as on weekends there is a good chance you... More

Unfortunately after having to ask twice for my order and after the entire table had finished eating I was greeted with a delightful eye roll, slamming of plates and a slopping of cake onto the plate (probably the exact opposite response that should have been given considering the cake wasn't given on the first request after everyone had finished eating)....

This is a great place for brunch the food was very tasty and the servings BIG. Nice to see lots of different offerings to the normal brunch menu. Our meal took awhile to come out but they said that was due to three of us ordering corn fritters. The staff were nice, not overly friendly, but not rude just seemed... More

I love this little place in Townsville. I have been here several times for breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning. It may seem expensive for breakfast but it is well worth it if you love breakfast. Portion sizes are huge. Can't comment on the coffee but smoothies, teas etc are good. The only downside is that it may be... More

Always great. Love the rotation of specials. Not for those with a small stomach. Pancakes and eggs bene are hard to go past. Expect a wait for a table on the weekend however for my money it is always worth it.

I found the staff abrupt and unfriendly. The food is expensive. I had a pork tortilla type dish, very cheesy, unhealthy and I didnt like it, $19 for lunch. Just to give you an idea a lemon tart slice costs $7.80. The decor is old and dated with broken venetian blinds on the windows, mismatched decor. This is my second... More
