Parking is in the street or at the school opposite the street (accessed by the street south of the market). One will find clean toilets and one ATM where one... More

A great place with excellent food. We've been here several times in the past and every time it is a overall good experience. The atmosphere is amazing and the people so friendly. We enjoy the food, good value for money. I find the clothing and other stalls a bit pricy.

When ever I'm in Cape Town I try and get down to the Biscuit Mill. It never seases to amaze me how diverse and cosmopolitan the Biscuit Mill is. There is a food market where one can choose food and drink from around the world and and of course the local produce and drink. The bands make for a great... More

We stopped in after the Greenpoint park run for a coffee and breakfast. It's a great market where certainly for breakfast you could get almost anything, our children enjoyed pancakes and croissants while we had a prego roll with chorizo and egg. The coffee was very good too. Highly recommended. Will give it a try for lunch some time soon,... More

When you walk into the market, you are immediately drawn to the lovely scent of coffee from the pop-up cafes, as you walk into the market's courtyard, you are exposed to... More
