First visit and won't be the last. Fantastic service soon as we walked in the door, coffee is highly recommended, the meals are a large serving and have attention to detail and full of flavour. Thank you for a pleasurable experience.

Breakfast was fantastic. Choice was hard as there were so many delicious items to choose from the menu. They also do good smoothies and juices. Pumpkin scrambled eggs with dukka or pea and feta fritters with poached eggs. Well done

Came her for a brief breakfast with my partner and infant child. this was a little while ago so the specifics are a little less fresh.. I know our coffees were excellent but the food was just ridiculous. I ordered thee special at the time which was like caramel covered waffles with maple syrup and butterscotch Ice-cream and it was...

After a year-long absence, I returned for a quick brekky. The quesadilla (bacon, avocado, chilli jam, cheese, sour cream) sustained me for the rest of the day, or least until a late lunch. The meal was very tasty, but perhaps a little too filling. The chilli jam was (in the patois of the reality shows) the hero of the dish.... More

We always make time to plan to have breakfast here. Plenty of choices to choose their menu. Food always presented nicely and delicious. Premises could be bigger but cosy none the less. Will visit again.

This place is fantastic, cute decor. The food is fantastic however the serves are HUGE! When on holidays you only need brunch here and you are right for the whole day. Best coffee we had in Townsville

We work in hospitality, we own a Cafè and we are Italian: we are surely not easy to please, but this place manned up! We live on Magnetic Island and a couple of locals recommended us Betty Blue. The French chef and the staff are very nice and polite indeed. The food is good, the portions are big and satisfying.... More

Great flavours and large serves. We enjoyed the pulled pork (pictured) and the fried haloumi. God coffee too. The only negative: felt crowded with too little room for wait staff or diners to move about without bumping your chair and nowhere for customers to wait to order without standing right at your table looking at you eat.

Pleasantly surprised! It looked like a cheap hairdresser outside but nice inside. A good menu with a selection that's not quite normal in Townsville. Started with a juice and it was beautifully served and fresh. My Betty's Benny eggs were perfect. Coffee was fine. As good anywhere in Townsville. This is one I will go back to. Highly recommended.
