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!!!

Betty blue is my favourite place to go for both food and service. This lovely place has an amazing atmosphere, especially sitting watching the world go by on busy Denham St. The food is amazing and lovingly homemade. I honestly can't pick a favourite as both the sweet and savoury are great. The real thing that makes this cafe stand... More

My family and I had heard a lot about Betty Blue from other friends, and decided to give it a go on Fathers Day for breakfast. Even though we hadn't made a previous booking, we called them on the morning of, and they graciously said that even though they didn't normally take bookings, because there were 6 of us, they...

Loved the menu options, great mix of sweet and savoury. The corn fritters were to die for and the serving size was huge. Will definitely be returning

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

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
