Once upon a time (5 to 6 years ago, that is), Cosi was one of the best places to eat for cheap. It is still very good - fresh ingredients, very good ciabatta... - but it is nevertheless declining. The girls working there, always coming from foreign (usually anglo-saxons) countries were really cool but tend to be less, which makes... More

My gf and I visited cosi while in Paris after some disappointing lunches so far in our trip. She had a tuna salad and I ordered a beef and salad panini, both were delicious and very reasonably priced. Could not fault the experience either, upstairs seating area is filled with natural light and the sound of people talking and music... More

We stayed on Rue de Seine so walked past this place everyday and they always seemed to have people lining up. We decided to have lunch one day and it was quite nice. Cosi is pretty much focaccia bread they make fresh on site. They have combo's where you can get a cosi (or salad with same fillings), choice of... More

A friend coerced me to go here--I would never go out and buy a sandwich that I can make perfectly well at home. Cosi sandwiches are made on an unusual foccacia-like baguette and there are both standard and creative fillings. For just a few extra euro you can turn a sandwich into lunch with a beverage and dessert. I enjoyed... More

Marked this place on my map and hit for lunch arrival day while walking from Latin quarter to the louvre. Great value, easy to order, very satisfying sandwich and an apple cobbler and iced tea all for about 7€. Freshly baked bread, and quick service. Eat in or carry out to picnic with. You will be glad you stumbled in... More

Along e street of Rue du Seine lies a hidden gem filled to brim with the locals.fresh made salads, souls and sandwiches made to order or grab one of their witty-named usually on the chalkboard. I recommend the Oliva or their Tandoori chicken. Save some room for their desserts or have them pack it all up and go for a... More

A short walk from a Metro station, we had to see what generated the wonderful reviews, so we waited in the long line 15-20 minutes before ordering our sandwiches and beverages at the stand-up counter. Preparation was fast, and there is an upstairs area with tables and chairs where you may eat after picking up your order . The sandwiches... More

I tried this place during a mid-June trip to Paris. Although it is a casual spot, I was either the best or second best meal I had in Paris. The focaccia bread on the sandwiches is perfect. Toasted, just thick enough, crispy and delicious. There are a large amount of different filings that you can try in the sandwiches with... More

Any time we are in a hurry for a quick lunch or dinner, and are anywhere close to St. Germain des Près, we stop at Cosi. The feature is their house made bread, a kind of focaccia, very crisp and flavorful, but the sandwich fillings are fresh and lively, and the salads are hearty and healthy, all ingredients fresh and...
