Shops restaurants and cinema at Somerset Mall are available for those visiting. Anchor stores include usual favorites like Edgars, Woolworths, Game, Truworths, Pick and Pay and Stuttafords. Eating places and coffee shops are also of a select variety from the usual Spur, Wimpy and MacDonalds take aways to seafood restaurants such as Cape Town Fish Market and Ocean Basket. The entertainment area of this popular shopping centre boasts modern Ster Kinekor movie houses which are always showing the latest blockbuster movies on circuit.
Best to check the Somerset Mall cinema movie guide to find out exactly what films are showing, when new releases come out and times etc. Many people spend the whole day in the centre starting with breakfast at one of the coffee shops or restaurants followed by some shopping and perhaps some ten-pin bowling or arcade games within the entertainment section. One can buy a movie ticket for the evening and there are enough shops to look around and buy goods at or enough for you and the kids to do to keep occupied until the film starts.
If possible, the best times to shop in the centre are during the week when everything is much quieter as it can get really busy on a Saturday or Sunday and parking can be a nightmare on weekends. Christmas sees this mall bursting at the seams as most centres generally are at that time of the year so if you intend on doing any Christmas shopping here then do it in hours and on days that are not so busy, leave it until the last minute and you can prepare for chaos. Banks here include Nedbank, Standard Bank, ABSA and FNB and there are foreign exchange facilities for those who need a place to convert currency. At the time of writing they have already finished phase three and extended shops, supermarkets, sports shops, furniture stores, restaurants and more onto the popular Somerset mall centre.
