The New Hotspots in SA: the new restaurants that have opened up in your city.
Newly opened cafe, Prodigy was conceived with two main aims: to create a space with no distractions, and to serve coffee that exceeds expectations. While coffee is the star of the show at Prodigy, light meals and pastries are also served. Dedicated to providing guests with a distinctive coffee experience, Prodigy really is the place to go in Umhlanga – whether you need a space to work, meet a friend or have a meeting.

Picadas Latino Bar
New Latino flavour has been brought to the centre of Cape Town with the opening of Picadas Latino Bar. Here, the Latin vibe is felt through the upbeat music and friendly staff, and tasted through Argentinian-influenced cuisine. Tapas can be ordered, and dishes include churros, empanadas and quesadillas. Picadas is perfect for any occasion, from after-work drinks to mid-day coffee meetings. And, when night falls, it’s time for some Spanish dancing.
