“The Place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Wow this was a super find and almost next to the entrance to the Craft Market itself on the V&A Waterfront. It is also not far from the Aquarium.

On entering you find so many tantalizing food stalls and almost every type of food you may want from Pancakes, Waffles, Pies, Samosas, Pizza,German style sausages, Fish/sea food with chips, Fruit Juices and freshly squeezed smoothies using fresh ingredients and even a Kosher food stall. To many to list all and to many to add photos for.

We visited many times for breakfasts, a bunch or light lunch and the prices were modest.

If it was a waffle or pancake you wanted you could sit round the stand watch it being cooked and eat there. You can also find seating outside or by many of the stands.

If nearby then this is a great place to grab a bite without the formalities of sitting in a restaurant.

“So much to try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

This market is fantastic. There's a huge range of foods in this market and the people are so lovely. You can try little bits and bobs before you buy and the food is lush.
My personal favourates were the biltong and samosas!

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We came across this place whist around the Q and A.Its very quaint and has lots of different food outlets and a bar upstairs.
We opted to try the Thai food stall on the 2nd floor and also the "Real" burger stall.
Both were very tasty and good value all washed down with a beer from the bar.

“Great for food and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

A lovely indoor market with lots of stalls selling food and upstairs a bar with a range of drinks, including craft beer. We had a great wrap from a stall downstairs and took it up to have with a beer, then grabbed a cupcake for dessert.

“Great Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

If you're traveling with a group, this is a good place to stop...lots of options! I'd recommend going to the Salad bar (can't remember the name)...some of the best salads EVER...seriously.
