Came in for lunch with my wife and also ordered the same meal off the special board as Steve A: Pesto, Caramelized Onion, Goat Cheese, Avocado, and Poached Eggs on a thick piece of brown bread, drizzled with reduced Balsamic Vinegar. Mine was divine. I'll be back for more before leaving Townsville!

The reviews you read are all relevant to the person that visited. I can only share my view. I am reluctant to leave a poor review, but feedback is an important tool to make improvements or at least for the business to be aware of the other side of the picture. The menu is deep and alive and a lot... More

We had not been to Betty Blue for a while, and after our recent visit for Sunday breakfast we were not disappointed.

Keep up the great work,... More

This place sells the most amazing and massive breakfasts in Townsville! We are never disappointed when eating here. The customer service is excellent, the menu has so much to choose from and don't even start me on the specials. You will not need to eat for the rest of the day after having breakfast here. Parking is terrible but a... More

Always enjoy or time at Betty blue, great food and coffee. Be prepared for a massive meal every time. Parking can be hard to find near by is the only thing that you will have to contend with. We are locals

What an excellent breakfast! We have been on the road a while and its great to see a cafe do their own spin on traditional breakfast. It was yum and the coffee a hit! It's a great place to catch up with mates and not far from accommodation ~ thanks!!!
