New Cross Culture Indian Restaurant and Turning Point Breakfast/Lunch Restaurant Coming to Newtown Township, But Maybe Not a Drive-through Starbucks

New Cross Culture Indian Restaurant and Turning Point Breakfast/Lunch Restaurant Coming to Newtown Township, But Maybe Not a Drive-through Starbucks | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

A new Indian restaurant at the Village of Newtown South is planning to open just a few doors down from the new Pharmacy at Newtown and the Newtown Farmers Market.

 

The menu at Cross Culture is focused on the Northern Indian style of cooking, highlighting specialties from the tandoor - a traditional clay oven - and a wide selection of various curries and kormas with varying degrees of spices.

 

The first Cross Culture opened in 2006 in Peddler’s Village, Lahaska. Since then it has grown to include locations in Doylestown, Buckingham and New Hope in Pennsylvania and in Princeton, New Jersey.

 

In addition to Cross Culture, a new breakfast/brunch and luncheonette will be opening at the Village at Newtown East near the new Harvest Seasonal Grill.

 

Turning Point will be located at 2841 South Eagle Road and will occupy 3,700 square-feet with 125 seats inside, and another 30 outdoors, weather permitting.

 

The eatery will be open from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. seven days a week serving breakfast, brunch and lunch.

 

“We crack hundreds of eggs a day because we know it’s the best thing for our customers,” says its website. “Every item on our menu is cooked to order… to your requests. We will make it how you like - just give us a little time. Our philosophy is ‘fresh is always best.’”

johnmacknewtown's insight:

Despite a recommendation for approval of a “conditional use” application for a drive-through Starbucks restaurant by the Newtown Planning Commission, Supervisors voted 5-0 against the application at the May 9, 2018, Board of Supervisors meeting. The restaurant is proposed to be located in the Village at Newtown West at 2896 South Eagle Road.
