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.
