Nice place on weekends but we dropped in on a weekday and we were really disappointed. Prices are geared for the European market too. R300 odd for a light lunch with no booze and no coffee is OTT!

When I was here 8 years ago this was new and all the rage. People kept saying "you must go". Went again this trip and unfortunately most of the shops were closed as it was a public holiday. But the charm still there and I understand that the food market at the weekend is still very good. The area around... More

Period. You have to go here. It's epic!!! We stayed over a weekend just so we could go and it was totally worth it. Amazing food, great shopping and super friendly people. We went from 12-3pm and while it as packed, it wasn't so packed that it was miserable. Don't come to Cape Town and miss this gem!!! Seriously.

A wonderful Market only on Saturday from 9-15. Great stuff there. But very crowded. Amazing food. Relaxed atmosphere. Perfect spot to be 😊

I loved going to Biscuit Mill, but these days it is an overcrowded tourist nightmare! No place to move, or just buy some food... they might need to consider cover charge...

I came here solely with the intend of eating all that I can bare in mind I'm not a big eater! It has a lovely vibe but really gets full after navigating my way through the people and waiting in line for food I can gladly say it was worth.....P.S. not to be done in heels

Must do breakfast / brunch spot if in Cape Town on a Saturday. Opens at 9 so worthwhile getting there early - on street parking safe when offered by parking officials. Lots of delicious food choices - go there hungry :-)

Thoroughly enjoyed it! We enjoyed some great live music and the food was to die for. Will definitely return on my next trip to CPT

My wife and I had a nice early afternoon of eclectic shopping and visiting the many food stalls that were available on a Saturday. I will note that we were visiting during high season and the crowds were large. I do feel that this should not be missed considering the multitude of shopping, food, and wine tasting options.
