Where else can you enjoy opera with a soup!

I can recommend the soup and the "everything but" salad (haven't yet tried a sandwich). There's plenty of room upstairs to sit down. And best of all, instead of the usual pop music, they play opera! I love dining by opera!

Located in the center of Paris, the places offers a variety of sandwichs and salads for a reasonable price!, a good option is the menu including drink, main dish and dessert!, The bread is delicious(homade , baked), and the area is nice! Just one point, it will be just a tentempié!

I spent a couple of weeks in Paris during September. My host suggested Cosi for a quick meal. I had the Tom Dooley, which is a turkey sandwich. It had a French flair to it which was delightful. I went back and tried the Stan's Folly sandwich (my name is Stan) and once again I was impressed, The restaurant is... More

I'm not sure about all the glowing comments about Cosi. I thought that the sandwiches were rather unremarkable and not a very good value. Judging from the lines, however, I must be in the minority.

If you need a quick take out this is the place- fantastic salads, sandwiches. Food is fresh, inventive and the salad dressing is great. Fun perky staff, who rate the customers on the blackboard!

I often go to Cosi to get a sandwich, the ingredients used are always fresh and the prices are good for the quality you are getting in return. The staff is friendly and the service is really quick. A personal favourite is the salmon sandwich with walnuts.

I had read about this restaurant on a newspaper website. It was just around the corner from my hotel and I got to try it on my last day in Paris. It's a real "find"! The sandwiches are on great bread which they bake themselves, the salads are delicious, and they have great desserts. Service at the counter is fast... More

Perfect casual little place on St Germain to grab a sandwich or a salad. You can add anything you want or choose from the classic ones. The bread is made out of focaccia so if you have a pizza and sandwich craving this is great alternative. The prices are pretty reasonable and the combinations are yummy! You have to be... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
