Great to find a cafe that mixes things up and isn't afraid to do something different from the standard egg dishes (though of course there are still eggs on the menu). The pancakes are probably the best I've ever had, so thick and delicious - last time they had a special with chocolate and raspberry sauce, chocolate ice-cream (no boring... More

Food was delicious but surprisingly expensive. It was understaffed, we had to remind staff about order. Many uncleared tables gave a messy impression and we saw quite a few people come in and leave straight away because they couldn't find a cleared spot.

A random selection based on recommendations of locals. After walking in and being ignored, we retrieved menus from another table and sat down. Across the room came a shout of 'our specials are on the blackboard over the counter'. No other approaches or assistance was available. After browsing through the laminated pages that are clipped together to form a menu,... More

Have had breakfast here several times and the food has been amazing each time. A little on the pricey side and very cramped but well worth it for the quality of the food. Expect to have to wait up to half an hour for a table if you don't arrive early for weekend breakfast- it's very popular but also very... More

Came to this place for a Saturday brunch in Townsville while down for a weekend. It is inconspicuously located in the city and draws comparisons to a Melbourne Cafe, with an interesting internal decor. The first thing you will notice on entering is that the place is packed with people most of which are taking 'instaselfies' of their food -... More

Came here with high expectations from rave reviews I'd heard and left disappointed. Good service and food was quick to come out, but the tasty factor wasn't there and for the price you pay you'd especially better ($20+ for a meal). I ordered the baby peas which was described as a mashed peas avocado and feta on olive bread with... More

This is my go-to breakfast spot in Townsville. The food is great, the portions are huge and the ambiance is delightful. But the prices are high, so be ready. All around a great little spot!

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
