We came here, expecting a step up from fast food, and that's what we got. Food was great, staff was friendly, They gave my toddler a free cookie, which made her day! I wouldn't tell people to go out of their way to come here, but it's a great quick stop.

I hadn't been to a Cosi in several years and it appears they have streamlined the menu and the food tasted better than I remembered. I had the BMT sandwich, and the family split a Cesar salad, the classic salad and a margarita pizza. The food was very fresh and delicious. I also had the country ice tea which is... More

The place is nothing special, very crowded and ok prices for the area. Service is decent but could be improved. Our best choice here was the pizza which is not too expensive but even the regular size was a bit too small for the price. However, good and particularly tasty tomato.

Everyone found something they liked at Cosi, which as any parent knows, is a dream come true. Far from boring, the simple dishes were fresh and tasty. Glad we found this for a quick lunch.

First time experience pretty positive. Took a minute to figure out how the place works (order, take #, sit down, they bring), but the sandwich arrived fast and satisfied.

You walk into Cosi and face the open oven where they cook the flatbread. Lots of choices for what to put inside or on top. We had the pork belly and the steak gorgonzola. Both were very tasty. And the lime chicken salad was pretty good.

Very good service, they bring the food to your table after you pay. Everything we had was very good and reasonably priced for the area.

The food is good. I love their bread. The sandwiches are fresh and the service is pretty quick. I enjoyed my buffalo chicken sandwich. Worth catching lunch here.

Decent place for a quick bite. We picked up sandwiches here for the train ride home. Only thing was, half was def. too small to satisfy for dinner. Next time I'll ask to see the sizes before choosing. Tasty sandwich.
