Amazing food and atmosphere. Many cool shops to stroll through, multiple levels. Sights and smells were amazing. A great place to ride your bike to.

This is literally one of thr best markets I've ever been to. The market is lively and has many wonderful food stalls. Every bite was filled with flavour and the vast majority of cultural foods are amazing!

I liked the place - had shops that are not the typical mall shops. And then there is some old stuff, and on site designer clothe makers , and a wine shop and some eating spots.

Whilst indeed an avenue for young artists and crafters to display their wares and a once off encouragement for tourists to visit, we were disappointed by the fact that there was no safe drop off and pick up to begin with. The Uber drivers both...More

Old Biscuit Mill is a nice vibrant and trendy place, but don't be fooled - as soon as you step outside there is poverty and crime. We parked outside on the street and when we came back our car was broken into, window smashed and...More

Hi there. The best way to get around Cape Town without a car is to use Uber. They are very safe, quick and efficient. It would only take about 15 minutes to get to the Biscuit Mill from the V&A.
