Located in Varsity Lakes close to Bond uni, it's a little bit arty, decorative, complete with a chandelier and all the fancy trimmings that makes a cafe unique. But the cafe lacks that edginess which makes a coffee establishment alluring. The vibe you feel here is 'comfort' and it feels like you are hanging out at mum's kitchen.
Unfortunately for this cafe is next to Blackboard Coffee. This is like being best friends with the 'it' girl/boy. No doubt a highly frustrating experience being "second best". Having said that Signature Dish offers a complete different atmosphere to their famed neighbour. Emphasis here would be on food more than coffee. They also have cooking classes during the week.
A lot more on the menu than Blackboard. Have yet to try any dishes here but the coffee wasn't all that great. I'd like to come back to try lunch here next time I'm in the area. There's always something being cooked in the open plan kitchen, friendly staff on hand and there's enough students hanging around to make me wonder what they are eating.
