The lunch menu is pretty straight forward, salads and sandwiches, and I like that. I get so tired of quirky menus. It's a short drive from Foster's to the Durham ballpark, which is a plus. The hospital is not too far away. It is definitely a top ten choice in Durham. Decent neighborhood, plentiful, off the street parking, lots of... More

Always great food ! Sara Foster put Martha Stewart on the map but never got the credit for that. Old country store with superb food, coffee and extraordinary desserts. My favorite place for Brunch!

Fosters has never failed to impress with its rotating cast of delicious cakes and pies, and its lunch sandwiches are fantastic. Cool to order at the counter and pick from a variety of seating options, and lots of drink options make it a great lunch spot!

This place is always packed around the breakfast and brunch hour, and there's a reason for it. Simple, fresh, and creative breakfast dishes are sure to please. Things like egg quesadilla on spinach tortilla with chicken sausage, avocado and pico de gallo. A family favorite spot where there is quite a blend of folks as it's pleasing to all. Also... More

I have had lunch at Fosters a number of times and I find the menu rather dated and not very exciting. I mostly order salads and find them to be the same old same old. The reason I pick this place is its convenient to my house and its a good spot for sitting outside. I would say it's hit... More

I've been meaning to come visit Fosters for a while now and I'm not sure what took me so long. Everything about the place is perfect for brunch. They have outdoor seating that's shaded and dog friendly. Amazing coffee. Friendly staff. An extensive menu that's healthy and tasty with low prices. And lots of fun candy to buy. I'll definitely...

I have gone there a number of times. I like the laid-back atmosphere and the variety of menu items. Based on my visit today, I would be reluctant to order any of their salads again. Today I ordered pasta salad and Caesar salad, both of which were disappointing. The dressing on each salad had very little flavor. Additionally, the pasta,... More

This one of a kind place, it's a nice place to hide in plane sight. The cakes and their food is all prepared uniquely. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff is welcoming. One can come with friends and have lots of fun.

If you haven't been here, you are missing out! Great, tasty, hearty breakfasts and amazing baked goods. The lunches look amazing too, but we never seem to get there for lunch....I hope to, someday! Outdoor seating is lovely and inside is cozy and eclectic. Make sure you go when you have time to sit and enjoy. We have been going... More
