It’s hard not to notice the massive developments made in downtown Durham as you drive down Main Street. The majority of these are housing options, from the new Main Street apartments, to Madbury Commons, to editions on existing residencies. With the welcome of 2016, however, we have four new restaurants to add. These include Lexie’s Burgers, The Juicery, The Soupery, and Saxby’s Coffee.
The juice craze is HUGE right now. People of all ages, backgrounds, and demographics love juice. Lucky for us Durham residents, The Juicery is coming to town! With popular locations in Portsmouth and Boston, The Juicery plans to open a new location right on Main Street. The Juicery offers all-natural smoothies, organic juices, vegan wraps, salads, wheatgrass shots, and whole food supplements for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The motto at The Juicery is “Food & drink that is nourishing to body, mind & spirit.” Follow their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more information.
With 30 successful locations around the country, Saxby’s Coffee plans to open another location in downtown Durham. The store is going to be in one of the commercial spaces in Madbury Commons. CEO Nick Bayer says that Saxby’s mission is to provide a welcoming space with consistently good coffee. Who doesn’t need that? Saxby’s also offers scrumptious breakfast and lunch options, from breakfast sandwiches, to salads, to bakery options. Saxby’s other big objective is to partner with local businesses and create a stronger community presence. I don’t know about you, but I think this is going to be a fantastic edition to Durham!

With three locations in Newburyport, Portsmouth, and Newington, the owners of Lexie’s Joint decided to open another location in downtown Durham simply called Lexie’s Burgers. Assuming the menu is consistent with the other locations, Lexie’s Burgers with offer traditional and exotic burgers in an inexpensive single size or a deluxe double size. As a fries guy myself, I am a huge fan of the hand cut fries, which come in similarly exotic flavors. Being socially responsible is something I always look for in a new company. Lexie’s Joint is an environmentally friendly establishment, one that recycles and composts whenever possible. The folks at Lexie’s Joint also adhere to a zero waste philosophy, remarking, “We feel this effort is an important part of being members of a health, happy community.” The new location is replacing Mixteca on Jenkins Court.
