Alma Café pro­vides a stage for mu­si­cians and per­form­ing artists to en­ter­tain and do their thing. In its own words “it’s a homely lit­tle place where good food, good mu­sic and good peo­ple reign supreme”. Com­ing up on Oc­to­ber 12 are Rowan Stu­art and Digby and the Lul­laby. Tick­ets are R150. Tele­phone 021 685 7377.

En­cir­cled by a level path­way and a spi­der’s web of criss-cross­ing paths, Ron­de­bosch Com­mon is a favourite spot for walk­ers, hik­ers and dog lovers, and is home to one of the old­est and best sup­ported Parkruns in the coun­try. This weekly timed 5km event takes place ev­ery Satur­day at 8am, when it’s just you against the clock. After­wards, run­ners usu­ally grab a cof­fee at Com­mon Ground Café, about 150m from the start, and there are break­fast specials for par­tic­i­pants.

Find every­thing you need at Starke Ayres Gar­den Cen­tre, in­clud­ing the Fraiche Ayres Café where you can have a light meal or a cof­fee in a tran­quil leafy green set­ting. Charles Ayres estab­lished his nurs­ery here in the late 1870s, along with a seed and florist shop. In 1920, the com­pany merged with C Starke & Co which was in­volved in the grain and pro­duce busi­ness.
