“Mother City Mojo Owners Graeme Robinson and Robbie Lessem, who also own the Mojo Hotel, established the market with the aim of enhancing their hotel guests’ experience – and they also wanted to offer Sea Point residents an interesting, diverse and fresh retail and leisure space. Which is exactly what this market is! What a lot it’s got Visitors can look forward to amazing food and drink offerings. What got us really excited is The Mojo Coffee Collective, which showcases Cape Town’s best artisan coffee roasters. Other great offerings include: The Mussel Monger for the freshest mussels and oysters Vagabond Kitchens for delicious steak wraps, flatbreads, burgers and seared tuna Tortilla Modern Mexican The Strong One for African-print clothing ”
