“Great Entertainment”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We got there early on Saturday morning 9:05am and still had to park a little down the road - this is worth it. There is a wide offering of speaicalst food for gorumet types. Huge selection of cuisines - go hungry. The place fills up fast though, better stay for lunch and really pig out.

“Disappointing during midweek visit”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I wanted to see Old Biscuit Mill without the crowds of the Saturday Neighbourhood Market. It would seem however that the food market is the key to this attraction's success. The decor / craft shops mostly felt the same - same style of product etc. The staff inside the decor shops were disinterested and glued to their phones. Some didn't even look up when we walked in and greeted them. No one tried to make a sale. The few food establishments that were open midweek were however very friendly. Would only therefore recommend this as a must do if in Cape Town on extended stay and only on a Saturday.

“So many things to see and buy”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Lovely place to walk around, variety of things to purchase. Only problem was the parking. Had to walk quite far when I eventually found parking, but well worth the visit!

“Great market and variety”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

We really enjoy visiting the old biscuit mill on weekends. There is a large variety of vendors selling all kinds of interesting items. Sometimes parking is a bit tough to find but it is definitely worth it.
