Prodigy Cafe is unexpected. An unexpected joy on the Umhlanga Ridge, tucked away inside the SHF in Umhlanga.
I mean, with the backing of SHF, you know it's going to be beautiful and high quality. As a naturally clumsy person, I was a bit terrified really, so many gorgeous details and potential things to break. But seriously, it's stunning. They've used the space to it's full potential and showed off their access to one of the best names in home decor.
The lovely barista, Nelly, served us delicious cortados. They use Ground Coffee House beans and with equipment like a custom white La Marzocco Linea and her mad skills, you can't really go wrong. Craig Smith (Ground Coffee House) and Dylan Botha (Noble Coffee) are both well-known in the KZN coffee scene and they put their heads together on this one to make sure that everything is looking fine and tasting better.
I'm sure the weekends are intense for them, we were there on a weekday afternoon when it was chilled and the perfect space for a productive meeting.
