Rarely do you read a menu and want to try EVERYTHING on it!

This place is hands-down the best breakfast/brunch joint in Townsville. It consistently delivers fantastic food and coffee, and I've been around 5 times now and not once been let down.

Love the breakfasts and the wide range of hot & cold drinks. Good variety, lovely presentation, happy staff. Only downside - it is a bit pricy for breakfast.

The ingredients, freshness, flavour and presentation of food here is a cut above a good café. The servings are large and for some people, too large including people who don’t want to become supersized. An enquiry as to whether a meal could be split was answered in the negative. This is not the only venue that provides very large servings... More

This a place to go when you want to pigout and indulge for the day! Overly generous servings and great tasting food and coffee. You won't be leaving here hungry that's for sure!

Yum, yum, yum! Super quirky, great staff and best of all - phenomenal food! I've never eaten a bad meal here in the 20+ times I have visited. I always bring visitors here and every time they come back they beg me to take them to Betty's. I love that the good old favourites (always with a twist!) always remain... More

This little cafe is the Bomb! The food is divine and the staff are incredible! The French toast is to die for and it melts in your mouth:) They cater to Gluten Free and many allergies. The whole atmosphere is great! They are kid friendly and although it can be noisy, the food makes it worth while. You know you... More

This is by far the best breakfast/brunch food in Townsville. The servings are enormous and the menu is exciting and creative melding beautiful flavours together. This is the place to come if you are sick of the same standard "bacon and eggs" menu of every other breakfast place ever. The corn fritters and the pulled pork are just incredible. Seriously...

She stated that there would be a group of 10-15 people arriving at 8.30 am.The lady at the end of the phone said to her that they do not do bookings but on a Thursday... More

Betty Blues has AMAZING FOOD. If you are hungry (and have a serious sweet tooth!) you will not be left dissapointed. My only advice? TAKE A FRIEND. The meals are huge! I had the pancakes (they were so delicious) and my boyfriend had the crepes... Neither of us could finish. We almost had to be rolled out of the restaurant.... More

In Townsville for the weekend and as the hotel we were staying at didn't have a restaurant we were on the hunt for somewhere that was close by for breakfast, This small cafe/restaurant wasn't in the main Palmer street strip. It was packed all the staff were young girls and they handled the crowd very well, we were seated quickly... More
