When I looked at the menu online, I was a little apprehensive because I couldn't find any mention of gluten free options, but some of the dishes looked like they would be safe. However, when I called them they immediately told me how several of the items were prepared and that they had gluten free bread that could be substituted on any of the sandwiches, etc. Overall they seemed really familiar with gluten free diets. I had the farm plate and it was really good! It seemed crowded when I got there, but the line moved quickly.

Fantastic, healthy food that tastes amazing. The atmosphere is comfortable, with wooden tables and floors. There is an outdoor space as well that provides a country kitchen vibe. You can purchase wine or beer to go with your meal. It's basically a way to get a home cooked meal out.

This is a fun place to eat. It appears to be an old farmhouse. I met a friend for breakfast. The menu is a bit limited for more normal eggs & such, but there is a plethora of other options. And they're all delicious looking! I can't wait to be back in town to go again!

The banana-walnut scone... my God. You can't mess up a breakfast order here. Come here if you're looking for tasteful chaos and wholesome conversation in what feels like one of the last well-run old-school establishments in 2019.

Delicious every time! We always stop here when traveling through Raleigh/Durham. Really good breakfast options - recommend the omelette of the day. Service is quick, dog friendly patio, and the market has a ton of unique options.

This is a cool place with a unique vibe. I had the daily special omelette today and honestly I didn't care for it at all and only had a couple of bites. That being said the cheese grits were amazing and everyone else in my group enjoyed their meals. Even though I didnt like my omelette I will be going back.

Food was outstanding. Not very disabled friendly though. Had a hard time moving walker around to find seating. Friendly staff and decent prices.

By far the best place the get breakfast in Durham. I have eaten here many times and every single time I am taken away by the flavors. I just need to venture out and try lunch food rather than just breakfast. Cannot recommend this place enough for a relaxing dinning experience, and if that’s not enough they also have old candies and baking products.

Nice place for brunch. They have other groceries to shop, which is entertaining. The place is bit cold, loud - if you are looking for a place to study do not go here

By far the best brunch in Durham. Go with the omelette special and/or the French toast. They are always creative and delicious.

I've been going here for years. The food consistently is great. Also, I love the outdoor seating on a nice day. As often as I go here, I actually do not have a go to dish. I almost always order the chef special, which changes. I do enjoy their bread pudding and typically get some for dessert whenever I go. I highly recommend this place. It is one of my absolute favorites in Durham.

We enjoyed breakfast food. And some baked goods as well. Food was delicious and coffee was great. Also took some German chocolate cake with us home for later and scones for the drive. They have a big selection of pickled items and books. Also many potential gifts items. Menu can satisfy everyone. I had an avocado toast and it was great with eggs and bacon. My husband and our friend had breakfast sandwiches that they enjoyed. Friendly staff.

Excellent food, including main course and dessert, most of all. The ambiance is country, at best, but the employees were terrific. Very clean and very creative. Prices were good, especially considering the quality and amount of food.

We we're visiting Durham for the weekend and tried out Foster's Market for breakfast and we are so happy we did!! We absolutely loved this place. The food was awesome, the staff was kind, and the atmosphere was great. We were also there on a beautiful morning when we could sit outside, which I'm sure greatly impacted out experience. Would definitely go again.

Great food and service. I love their cookies and other bakery items. Can be pricey but worth it.

This place is one of my favorites. It’s a one of a kind place and typical of what you might expect in Durham. When you walk in the place for the first time the appearance is a little deceiving. You’ll see old banged up furniture inside and out and just a bit of disorder. But the food is delicious and consistently high quality and fresh. For an idea of the kind of place it is, there used to be an old table on the porch with a drawer. My wife and I would have lunch at that table now and then and one day for no particular reason, we opened the drawer. Inside we found handwritten notes written by patrons going back several years. Some on slips of paper, others on napkins. Many of them were very nice personal notes about their impression of Fosters and sometimes a bit about themselves. We must have spent hours over several visits reading those notes. I always remember them when we have a chance to stop in for a meal.

Our first time dining here. The staff were very friendly, we were greeted by multiple people. They have an amazing menu to choose from, salads to sandwiches, breakfast items until 2 PM. Lots of fresh baked cookies, bars, breads, cakes, pies, etc. The lemon coconut and the carrot cake were unbelievable! My husband and I ate the grilled Turkey club sandwich. It's huge! The flavors came together in a magical way. They also have a store located inside at the entry end where you can purchase wine, jellies, mixes, cookbooks, lotions, local honey from Durham county. Can't recommend this place enough! Plenty of parking with overflow spaces in the back of the restaurant. You can eat inside or outside at tables and picnic tables. You are allowed to bring doggies to eat at the outside eating area. Foster's Market does offer beverages in glass bottles and they recycle!

The food was really good. I got an Italian sandwich and it had plenty of meat on it and I really liked the hot peppers on there as well. I also had a Blondie and that was delicious too. The place has a warm and welcoming feeling as well. I was there late in the evening and there wasn't many customers so I'm not sure what it's like when it's super busy.

Fosters is the best place in Durham! The food is always delicious, the staff is super nice and you can buy all kinds of goodies! Seven Pepper Jelly is one of my top favorite! I highly recommend that if you are in Durham stop by this place and make sure you are supper hungry as you are going to want to eat everything!

Amazing sandwiches and desserts. Service is great. I loved all the local food options. Laid back atmosphere. Perfect for relaxing after work or with co-workers for lunch.
