Great selection of different types of food and drink, it is also a wonderful place to people watch. We met a local couple there who gave us some great tips on what to do nad see in the area. Very friendly place.

We LOVED our morning at Old Biscuit Mill. Coming from Brooklyn (currently the food stall capital of the universe), we were desperately missing good food after living in Rwanda for almost a year. Cape Town was our saving grace in many ways, but the food market here was really the crown jewel. So many delicious and affordable options, super friendly... More

We went to the old biscuit Mill to see the market held there on a Saturday. Very busy with both tourists and locals which tells you something. The walk to the mill from our parking was interesting as the area has an array of design and collectable shops. The mill has been converted into shops and design studios with a... More

During the weekend the is a warehouse which is used I think as a car park but on Saturday a Food Market arrives from 9am to 2pm. Oysters and Champagne while sitting on a crate simply outstanding. The range of different outlets is just fantastic and everything we tried tasted fab.

There are those who swear that the Old Biscuit Mill is by far the best attraction in Cape Town and for some people, I'm sure it is. I am just not one of them. Our arrival in Woodstock was a bit tricky as the roads were jam-packed. We were quite lucky to find a spot right outside the entrance. As... More

This place is over crowded, not large enough to accommodate the number of people. One would enjoy best if they got there earlier. Also, parking is a nightmare, rather take a cab/taxi.

It was okay, parking was an issue. We went during the week, told the weekends are busier and thus more lively.

An awesome place thats open only on saturdays! There's tons of international food options - but be mindful it isn't your local "African" experience - it's also kind of pricy. The atmosphere is great and there's lots of trinkets and things you could buy.

Old Biscuit Mill is only open on Saturdays and a must but don't eat before you get there as the food is fantastic and a lot to choose from.

what a pleasant surprise it was to discover the Old Biscuit Mill Market. we arrived at around 9h00 and we were absolutely astounded by the wide array of fresh food available. The area where the market is located is quite small so get there early to enjoy the best of the best food available. Karoo Moon is one of the... More
