Savoury or Sweet?


The Crossing, the new food hub at The Brunel Shopping Centre, is really coming together.

One of the first to move in, Eggelicious, is already very busy serving its popular mix of vegan, gluten-free & vegetarian wraps tapas, fish & plated specials. And now three more independent local businesses are joining them.

First to open will be Tastes of Portugal, who are expanding from their first shop in the old tented market. Run by business owner Isabel Simoes, Tastes of Portugal will offer the Portuguese groceries for which they are already well known together with a delicatessen counter with imported cheese and meats, plus Portuguese wines and beers. They will also serve hot food, hog roasts and pastries.

From savoury to sweet..... Sweets Galore, who have has been established in The Brunel shopping centre for ten years, have also decided The Crossing is the perfect opportunity to open their new concept dessert and ice-cream parlour serving entirely desserts and shakes.

Adding to that, Triple Two Coffee, which opened in The Brunel centre in August 2016, has been so successful the owners have decided to open an additional unit within The Crossing too.

All hope to start serving in late October/early November coinciding with the opening of the new escalator linking Canal Walk up to The Crossing which is near completion.


The Crossing is targeted at the day-time, quick service food sector, providing trade from breakfast through to early evening. Its offering sits perfectly within the existing, successful restaurant and food offering in the town centre – Regents Circus and Swindon Outlet.
