In the local area there are some excellent independent cafes including Red Kite and on Easter Road you'll find Twelve Triangles and several great small boutiques, food shops and restaurants as well as supermarkets. It's easy to walk to Princes Street from here and many buses are available on London Road and the tram stops on Picardy Place/Leith Wal.

East New Town & Hillside
The East New Town and Hillside area is where it’s at. Running from Scotland Street in the West to Broughton Road in the North, Lower London Road in the East and Regent Terrace in the South. Local resident, Peter Irvine, of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay fame christened the area The East Village.
The highpoint, literally, of the area is Calton Hill. A walk up here is rewarded to magnificent views across the whole of the city and photo opportunities abound on Calton Hill. The National Monument is much climbed and the Nelson Monument was built to look like Nelson’s upturned telescope. The City Observatory is now the home of the Collective Gallery and there’s a cute café there too. Calton Hill is an incredible place to watch the fireworks, The Beltane Festival held there on 30th April is very popular and an enormous torchlight procession on 30th December culminates on the Hill.Read More
