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.

Great breakfast with friends on a Saturday morning. Plenty of choices on the menu including vegetarian options. Inside the café it is quaint and cosy. The waffles were yummy and a good size dish. Only downside was it took 45 mins for our food to come out.

I ordered my lunch choice over the phone, which was quick and efficient. The staff member was very friendly and had my lunch ready on arrival. I ordered a chicken and salad wrap, which was lightly toasted but had very fresh ingredients. Great friendly service and a yummy lunch, who could ask for more.

Betty Blue is a 'must' visit. It is a quaint and cosy cafe that is inviting as soon as you walk in. My friend and I had breakfast and well, I didn't need lunch lol. I had pumpkin scramble (eggs)with goat's cheese and pesto, wow what an awesome combination. My friend had 'Bettys Benny' which of course is eggs benedict... More
