It houses several companies from various branches of activity (furniture, crafts, clothing and even a graphic) and two of the best restaurants in Cape Town-Test Kitchen and the Pot Luck Club. An excellent space to spend a good Saturday morning during the Neighbourgoods Market with several local producers, designers and gastronomy venues. The best way to get there is Uber, given that it is quite difficult to park in the vicinity on Saturday morning (although there are very close parks). There is always an ambient music and several spaces to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and a view of Table Mountain.
A very fun place to go on Saturdays because a large variety of vendors come out to make this place a market. Lots of fun on those days because there is music, shopping from local vendors, and TONS of food options from small stands. The rest of the stores that are open all week long are nice as well, though they are mostly expensive novelty items like designer clothes, gift shop items, and stickers/prints.
Recommend coming here on a Saturday for the market. Some nice and unique shops if you're looking to purchase gifts to take home. Two of Cape Towns best restaurants (The Test Kitchen and The Potluck Club) are also located here.
