My husband and I visited this spot every day, for six days at the beginning of March 2017. Whether for breakfast, or just coffee, the service was always wonderful. Our waitress always smiling and helpful. A drink was unfailingly provided for my daughter's golden retriever. Thank you Lexi. The imaginative food selection catered for my yogurt and fruit preference as... More

This must be one of the worst designed buildings in the world. Signposts are confusing, and trying to get from the parking garage to the shops is impossible, the only thing more difficult is to find your way back again when you want to go home. Also there was no place to pay for parking at the level at which... More

We stayed in the Grey Hotel around the corner and we loved it. It is small with a lovely court yard on the inside with a great coffee shop, Bootleggers and other cool decor shops. Across the street at the back it extends in the Cape Quarter Piazza also with some cool shops, like Africa Nova. Great Spar supermarket inside.

I don't think this Mall ever hit off the ground. Just too many open shops and they change all the time. If it weren't for Spar, I probably wouldn't go there as a destination. There is nothing which draws me to it except convenience of the Spar. Agreed, there is the odd speciality shop, but nothing one wouldn't get at... More

Lovely little mall with the beautiful African Nova shop, in the old section. Also don't miss La Petit Tarte and the gift shop next to them. The new section has a great coffee shop called Bootleggers and a good Spar and also some shops like Nap. The De Waterkant neighbourhood is a beautiful little neighbourhood to stroll around. Very upmarket... More

A lovely small open mall devided in the bigger Square section with a good Spar, and a lovely setting in the Square with Bootleggers coffee, and some designer stores like Spitfire.

This mall was so close to my accomodation it was so handy to pop into the spar, and also sorbet to get nails and waxing done! Not heaps of shops but good to have a collection all Together with secure parking available.
