A cute and quaint cafe with a quirky interior, I ordered eggs benedict with pulled pork. The meal was ample size, delicious - one of the best breakfasts I've had in a long while. Service is super friendly. Located in the CBD. My only complaint is the price: two breakfast dishes and orange juices cost us $54 (Aussie dollars).

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. The menu has a good selection, (the corn fritters are delicious!) and the serving size is very generous. The place has a great feel to it and the staff were all very friendly. 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
