Want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city centre? Across the Meadows you will find beautiful Bruntsfield, Morningside and Marchmont. While they are mainly residential districts, there are several pockets of independent shops, cafes and restaurants to discover here. If you want to get off the beaten track, this part of town is a great area to explore.
Bruntsfield in particular is veggie heaven, home to local vegan favourite Seeds for the Soul and the vegetarian bar and restaurant Thrive.
