I’m a regular at this coffee shop! It’s a great atmosphere to get work done during the day. Lots of outlets. The baristas are really nice and take the time to get to know you. Nice big windows to people watch or a more secluded spot in the back. I love coming here!

Definitely one of the best coffee shops in Durham. The staff is super friendly and were quick with orders. It's in the perfect location, right next to the Durham Food Hall. I'm a big fan of the wall decorations. It's a great place to study or to get some work done. I would definitely come here again.

Great coffee shop in Durham, my favorite to do work on weekends or afternoons. Reasonable coffee prices, food available if desired. Very nice indoor space with plenty of seating, tables, and outlets. It is frequently full on the weekends so you may have to wait to get a seat or come earlier, particularly during the academic year. There is street parking nearby, but they will also validate parking from the nearby garage connected to Liberty Warehouse.

Really great gem for working or studying. Good, bottomless coffee, lots of tables, quiet ambiance, clean, nice bathrooms, and nice lighting. There is even a conference room you can rent by the hour.

Fosters Coffee ☕️ is the bomb! I use to think another spot was better but their service sucks at the main location so I started going to Fosters. Recently I’ve been trying all of their board suggested coffees like a Strawberry Latte that benefited a local school! I add an extra shot of espresso, Oak Milk and it was magical!!! Like who knew Strawberries 🍓 & Coffee would pair so well. So good I barely made it to the car and it was gone. I also tired their Cold Brew with Lavender syrup and that was yummy too. My go to is a Chai Tea Latte with 2 shots of espresso or a Mocha Latte w/ extra shot and Vanilla. Everything I’ve had there is good 😊 the only thing I dislike about this place is there is NEVER anywhere to just enjoy your coffee. There are WAY TO MANY PEOPLE using the place as their home office. I wish they’d limit the time you can work in the space. Because it’s decorated so nice and creative with the coffee photos (my favorite by far is the Jude & Ewan in the bathroom.) It’s so hard to find a coffee spot that is real coffee house style that promotes moments to enjoy the coffee with friends or relax. But the coffee is a MUST!

Multiple visits, first review. Good experience each time. I've never partaken in food items, only coffee of one sort or another. I think this trip was a specialty mocha latte of some sort, maybe the Nutella latte. Just the right level of sweet since I've started using the French press more at home. Cool pics on the walls with all sort of famous peeps holding a coffee cup, although this time they had someone's face taped over all the others. Not sure what that was about, but amusing nonetheless. There's a good amount of tables and other chairs as well as a meeting/conference area with vid capabilities that I assume can be reserved. Cool feature. The bariatas are pretty fast. Before I get back to the counter, they're handing me my drink wherever I stand/sit.

I loved Foster Street Coffee because of it's friendly staff and delicious smooth vanilla latte. It is bright and airy with lots of seating options. It is a great place to work, study or hang out. It was packed with Duke Students the day I was there.
