“Don't eat breakfast before you go...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

My boyfriend and I arrived around 10am on a Saturday in Dec and the place was buzzing. Lots of really delicious foodie treats and all sorts of drinks to choose from beer on tap, glass of bubbles, Rooibos Ice Tea (with vodka). The best part was being in the atmosphere sharing long tables with strangers and buying local produce from the growers... yummy chorizo, cakes and olive jams etc. The shops selling clothes and art were a bit pricey and we didn't see anything at caught our eye. Will definatly go again for the food. Taxi cost R65 each way from central CT.

We waited for the only Saturday to arrive because everybody told us that the Old Biscuit Mill is excellent. And it was true.
Beautiful and colorful market...full of good merchandise...food... clothing crafts....

“Great, but take care....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We had a wonderful experience visiting the biscuit mill and savoured all the wonderful goodies on offer. Rounded it off with a perfect meal at the Test Kitchen! However, when we got back to our car that was parked in the road (because the parking area was full), our window was smashed and an iPad stolen from under the seat. So please take care and check that you park in an area where security guards keep watch.

“A must for food lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

What a fantastic experience! We went on a rainy busy Saturday morning and although it was a bit crowded you quickly get sucked into the lively vibe. There are a lot of interesting arty stalls/ shops where you're sure to find souvenirs or gifts for friends or loved ones. The highlight is, however, the enormous food/ fresh produce hall with interesting and delicious foods and desserts, beers and wines. You will want to go back again and again until you've tried everything because at the Biscuit Mill you really are spoiled for choice. Go hungry!

Parking is a bit of a problem though, and we parked quite a distance from the Biscuit Mill in kind of a dodgy area, but we've been told by the locals that arriving early on a Saturday morning will be your best chance to secure a parking close by.
