Plenty of seating indoors and outdoors. Food was so fresh! The atmosphere was very relaxing. Loved the feel of a corner store complete with jams, wines, yummy treats. Whenever we are out this way we will definitely be back❤️

Excellent brunch spot with a great menu and reasonable prices. Food is ready quick despite how busy they can get on the weekends. Plenty of parking and seating (indoor and outdoor). My wife is already wanting to come back tomorrow!

I have not visited Foster's in Raleigh, NC for more then a decade . So when a travel nursing assignment in Durham , NC came up I jumped at the chance. To find out there's a Foster's in Durham was a real bonus. They did not fail to deliver. I use to buy loads of bakery items when I visited to bring it back with me to WV then. My number one pick is still their Blueberry scones and cheese and spinach biscuits with the beef stew. I tried their breakfast Burrito . I opted fir it because it was meatless . It was very filling abdcradty breakfadt selection decided a takeaway since this was my first time . They are organic and vegan ftiendly. . Its situated next to the German bakery and restaurant Gulghupf . But Foster's was still as wholesome good All American country flair. Very attentive and friendly staff and you will be spoilt for choices. I made a stopover for a scone and coffee but ended up with close to $40 worth if bakery items. Lots of oarking that extend right to the back and lots of seating . Thumbs up. !

I have been to Fosters just a couple of times because it's quite a trek from where I live. But when I do go, I always come away feeling I should go more often! Such a great spot for breakfast and lunch! The salads and sandwiches are fresh and flavorful and there are so many options to choose from! The whole place has a no fuss homey feel to it. Would go back without thinking twice! Great for vegans and vegetarians!

Fabulous variety and quality of down home southern specialties. Not too crowded for Sunday brunch!

Such a nice rustic place to chill out with friends. I especially like their coffee and the southern style breakfast

There are a few classic fosters original items like the famous pepper jelly. Over recent years the prices have increased and the quality has dipped just a bit. Overall it’s good but not great. The setting is far better than the products. Both as restaurant and market.

The food is good but somewhat overpriced. I got a sandwich for $8. Not a big sandwich at all. It was good, but not amazing. I think if you're going to charge $8 for a fairly small sandwich, why not at least throw in a handful of chips for free? That wouldn't cost much, and would help round out the meal. The outdoor space is nice and service was good.

Foster's has been one of my staples for over a decade. Over the last few years I was going frequently in the summer to enjoy lunch and work outside at one of their many picnic tables for a few hours. They were very cautious about handling the risks of COVID, which I applaud, but are now open every day again with indoor seating available. This place is a Durham institution for a reason! Make sure you check out whatever is on special and what's in the prepared foods section (both salads and hot meals).

The ambiance here is wonderful for people who love an eclectic cafe vibe. The food is delicious but prices are pretty high. Overall I would recommend it because the experience can be factored into the cost.

Foster’s is so delicious. I don’t know the history but I know they’ve been around for awhile and have established themselves as a staple restaurant in the area. After you decide what you want, go up to any of the staff behind the deli counter and let them know your order. They’ll bring it to you, and there’s indoor and outdoor seating.
There are so many fresh ready-to-eat options, there’s something for everyone. The chicken curry salad is my favorite. I’ve had several of the breakfast items as well and they are good.
The hot tea selection is also delightful.

Absolutely outstanding! Every time I come here, it's delicious. This time I had the grits bowl, and it was fantastic!! And the cheddar biscuit was great too! This my favorite breakfast place.

All food is made with all local ingredients. Food was excellent! This day I went I had the biscuit sandwich and my friend had the grits option with black beans, pico etc. She said hers was good, however, it was not hot. It was just warm. My biscuit sandwich was okay. Biscuit was good and warm and cheesy but the eggs and bacon were almost cold. I will say this day I went they were Very busy around noon/1pm on a Saturday.

Fantastic brunch and desserts! Also some great old time candy and beverages. Looking forward to trying lunch and pastries.
Update: The scones are really tasty and that dessert case is truly amazing! Best coconut cake around and the banana pudding it tops. There is also a wine section where you can pick up bottles and I bet they are good as everything else is here. Can’t wait to come back for more!
Update 2/19/22: The general set up is the same, but there are noticeably less beverages in the cold case, dry goods and candy. The food selection with breakfast, sandwiches, side dishes, desserts and pastries still abound. There are people eating indoors in the old seating configuration and plenty of outdoor seating. Lots of parking as always which is much better than Guglhupf which is even worse than previously.

A favorite place to get breakfast or brunch when we’re in the area. Reliable quality and flavor. These blueberry pancakes were delightfully fluffy and tasty.
