There’s a little bit of something at the Biscuit Mill in Woodstock that appeals to the trendier side of every traveller that visits the Mother City.
Make a day of it with these five of the best attractions at this seemingly ever-trendy hub during your stay in self-catering accommodation in Cape Town.
To Market You Should Go
The Neighbourgoods Market is justifiably famous as one of Cape Town’s largest and best food markets. Arrive for breakfast and linger until well after lunch to snack on dumplings and gyros washed down with craft beers.
You can amuse yourself in between by browsing among the stalls brimming with clothing, crafts, artisan creations, cosmetics and bric-a-brac.
More Glorious Food
If you don’t’ like to eat on your feet, head for the Pot Luck Club for a view over the lie of the land while you munch on tapas.
Planning well ahead (like a year or so!) may get you a table downstairs at the Test Kitchen which is one of the world’s finest restaurants and serves up fine dining with a unique twist.
Vegan and vegetarian fans should try out Saucisse Boutique Deli, while chocoholics are bound to find their way to Cocoa Fair to watch the chocolatiers at work and snap up some gourmet treats.
Redemption Burgers is an option for the truly hungry, offering what can only be the best burgers in town.
Soak up the Vibe
On weekdays, the Biscuit Mill is bustling with entrepreneurs, creatives and the cool after school set while weekends are filled with those who want to see and be seen. Either way, the Biscuit Mill is a hive of hip, happening activity every day of the week.
Art and Design
Many of Cape Town’s finest designers have outlets at the Biscuit Mill. Ladies clothing with a classic twist lines the racks at Harpers Rose Boutique, while Karoo Moon features locally made leather handbags, jewellery, accessories, confectionery and gifts.
Imiso Ceramics is the place to go for luxurious interior design bits and bobs, and Livision stocks striking wood and metal furnishings.
Pick up some exquisite fine art prints at Artlab or visit the Cape Town Creative Academy for a creative fix.
