This place is amazing! I only had their smoothies which was good but could’ve been better. I did some work here on my laptop and have different sitting options. The inside looks modern. Will come here more often!

Great place! Only reason I gave 4 & not 5 stars is b/c of limited menu selection of side items at this time. Food was great tho👍 certainly a do-over

Good coffee, nice atmosphere and great prices. The owner and staff are all extremely pleasant. I was so pleased to find a decent new coffee shop in the area where I could sit down and get some work done and enjoy a good cup of coffee without having to refinance my home (looking at you, Cocoa Cinnamon). The only gripe I have is that it closes too early at 5pm. Even two more hours (until 7pm) would make a world of difference to us folks who aren't free until late afternoon/evening.

Love this place. Excellent coffee and a great place to bring your laptop. They even have a conference room you can reserve!

Very well-made drinks and one of the quieter coffee shops.

I love this place! Roomier and brighter than other coffee shops in Durham, making it a great place to study. It's a small thing but I also really like how they bring your drink to you rather than making you go up and get it.

Love this place. Great for studying and doing work. Had an iced chai tea latte which was better than most places. Great if you need to change up your study space :)

Cosy atmosphere that's good for working (quiet but not silent). Prompt, polite customer service. I ordered a cappuccino and it was good.

Lovely ambiance, kind and helpful staff (and the owner, Tracy, is unbelievably sweet!) and probably the best chai latte in town.

Lovely staff, very clean (unlike certain other Durham coffee shops I could mention *cough*), croissants baked on site, many comfortable chairs. Also your indoor plants give me great joy. I will come back to this review and give you your fifth star as soon as you get some metal cutlery so that we can skip the plastic. :)

Went there to grab some vegan pastries from Crum bakery. Super sweet staff and delicious food! Love the space!

Comfy. Service was fine. If you want a good cup of black, light roast coffee, look elsewhere. Nothing to write home about. Wife’s chai latte was good, she says.

Went to Foster Street Coffee for the first time today. My husband and I loved it. Great service, delicious hot chocolate and the best quiche I've ever had! The owner, Tracy, is so helpful and kind!

Great coffee, very comfy chairs. Can actually get large sized cappuccinos. Relaxing space. Has a room with a large table for work or study. Limited food options

Lovely and bright coffee spot with many caffeinated options and plants galore. Their Jazzy Java blend is my favorite. There's a good mix of tables and chairs with a handful of cozier furniture. Good place to study, have an informal meeting, or just grab a cup to go.

I stopped by this place Sunday morning and had a really good experience. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I had a chai latte and spinach feta croissant fresh from the oven!! It’s a very spacious, but cozy atmosphere inside. You won’t be disappointed.

Cozy little spot. The seating is pretty spread out. It was also pretty crowded when we went. Overall ok - the drinks aren’t great tasting.
