Thanks to a referral from a local bartender, we went to Fosters for breakfast. Having gone to Features the previous morning and being underwhelmed by the food, we were very pleasantly surprised by the food, service and ambiance of Fosters. Highly recommend going there!

Foster's is just a few doors down from the Avon Theatre in Stratford. It's our favorite place in town for breakfast (poached egg on avocado!). Highly recommended, especially if you want dinner before a play at the Avon (or Studio).
