Hi, I just wanted to update everyone that BB< is closed Monday and Tuesday's. They are training new staff and need extra time off to do this.

Any cafe that can get me to eat pulled pork for breakfast deserves a medal. Not only this, the size of the breakfast is more than expected.....other cafes around the world should take note.....fair prices, high quality and a full plate. Pity this place is in Townsville and I'm here only 4 times per year.

i do travel a lot, and without a doubt this cafe/restaurant goes above and beyond in its quality of food. just superb, i find it hard to believe the menu creators are from north queensland - for example i had a Peking duck and pumpkin on dough (forgive my poor recollection) and it was truly gorgeous. i cannot sing enough...

Busy little Caffe, often have to wait for a table on the weekend but its well worth the wait! Have not found one thing that isnt delicious. You will not leave hungry portion sizes are generous. Staff always happy and friendly. Always impressed!!

Who doesn't love an awesome breakfast? There is so much range (light meals, sweet, savoury, hearty meals) on the menu that you will want to come back and try everything else. My partner had the Waffles with strawberries, chocolate sauce (that isn't out of a bottle I might add!) and honeycomb crunch. I had the Frenchie with a huge serving... More

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. With an inventive and exciting food and drinks menu, prices are a little on the expensive side but you get what you pay for - which is a huge meal... More

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
