With plenty of great food, lots of craft beers and wines and a live jazz band playing we really enjoyed the old biscuit mill.

We walked from our hotel down to the Old Biscuit Mill which was about a 2-3 mile walk. We enjoyed all the small boutiques and stores and only wish that we would have gone on a Saturday when they have the market going.

This was a fantastic experience! A trip to Cape Town is not complete without a visit to the Old Biscuit Mill. From grilled mushrooms to tuna biltong you will find a wide variety of food here. Get there early and be prepared to squeeze your way through crowds of people and stand in ques at the variety of food stalls.... More

Having heard about the Saturday market my wife and I made our way to the Old Biscuit Mall. Finding parking was challenging, but hey, its was just before Christmas so that was to be expected. The sheer volume of the people made moving around uncomfortable and we really expected the market to be much bigger. The wares on sale were... More
