My wife and I had a nice early afternoon of eclectic shopping and visiting the many food stalls that were available on a Saturday. I will note that we were visiting during high season and the crowds were large. I do feel that this should not be missed considering the multitude of shopping, food, and wine tasting options.

There are a few nice shops here, but on the day I visited it was overcrowded. I had to park far away and the area is a bit dodgy. The stuff I was interested in was pricey

We love this place. Great food and so much choice too. Old Biscuit Mill has a wonderful vibe. Go hungry as so many nibbles too to try.

Very touristy place. Some interesting food options and an excellent espresso lab. Try the tuna biltong place for something different. If you drive, you should park a couple of streets away and walk there. At peak time around lunch time onwards the main street accessing this place becomes a nightmare for cars.

What can I say other than excellent. The Biscuit Mill was recommended by friends and how right they were. From the moment we arrived we never stopped smiling. The atmosphere is magnetic and you just want to soak up as much of this place as you can. Everyone is so friendly and happy to be there. And champagne for breakfast... More

Went there on a Saturday morning..simply loved the feel of the place.. The variety of cuisine from different parts of the world..great for lazy brunch.. The stuffs are overpriced and hence good for window shopping only.. Must go on a saturday morning by 10a.m.

Overpriced market. I am sure this was once a great market but is is now quite a disappointment with no locals with overpriced trinkets and so so food. We later visited the market in Hout bay, see my review for an alternate experiance

After my first Saturday visit, I have to say, the reality of the Old Biscuit Mill, Salt River, is that by emulating the Craft Market, Victoria and Alfred Watefront, the traders are also copying the prices, with no justifcation as these venues are worlds apart. There are no card machines, decent seating or enough space to enjoy a decent meal,... More

Worth making the effort to go to this market in the old mill in Woodstock. Parking can be a challenge but find somewhere in the street and walk. When you walk in if you turn right there is a HUGE under cover food market with the most mazing selection of eats. Don't eat before you go as there is so... More
