It's a great place to go on a Saturday when the wonderful food market is open, plus all the shops. We went again for dinner one evening and were told the shops would be open until 7, but once there, we discovered they had all closed at four! It's a great shame not to stay open as so much extra...

A fun and vibey place to visit with a variety of different and good stalls with quality foods...but some vendors are really over charging for their goods, capitalising on the atmosphere and your experience.

Great way to start your Saturday. Lots and lots of different food, coffees, smoothies etc. Get something to eat and a drink and sit outside in the sun.

Parking is a problem so make sure you arrive well in time for a reservation or date. Niche shops selling great gifts, little pricey but excellent quality. The deli has the very best sandwiches & desserts. I have been twice and thoroughly enjoyed their fare.

If you are in Cape Town on a Saturday and have nothing better to do YOU MUST visit this place. Lots of food stalls and art and atmosphere that is desirable. I recommend whole heartedly

This modern food market is great! Foods and flavours, both local and international. Go early to get a spot to sit, and not miss out on the good stuff. The rest of the trinkets at the market are just as lovely, but the food - do not miss the food.

Good ambiance but way too crowded! You can barely move between stalls, the food is good but nothing original : sandwiches, chocolates, biltong, Asian food, burgers... You can pretty much find the same type of food in any other market in Cape Town... And you end up spending more money than in a restaurant!

An amazing place to escape the dreary confines of a hotel breakfast. Head to The Biscuit Mill and feast with all your senses! Amazing stalls of locally produced yumminess, live music, and stunning flowers and produce. Sit down and feel like a local. Remember your manners though - locals never "hold" seats for others, always order and collect before trying... More

Only one atm that was out of order. Then when we did draw money the atm gave the incorrect amount. Other than that it was cool.

I really like this place. More an informal setting which is a car park during the week and becomes a food court on Saturdays until early afternoon. Great choice of different food and most looks home made. The atmosphere is great and not everything is perfect but that is part of the experience.
