I run a book club that meets once a month and this Cosi has been very accommodating, rearranging tables to seat 10-13 people one Wednesday evening a month. Folks in my party rearranged tables and management did not complain, and they even helped us in rearranging the heavy tables. The background music is kept low enough so that we can... More

We had breakfast here. They have an interesting square bagel you should try. The oatmeal was disappointing. Coffee was good, a bit pricey for breakfast. I would recommend that you try Trivoli which across the street.

This is chain food, not bad chain food but not restaurant food either. There are many choices, coffee is made by a machine, nothing fancy, just a convenient place to meet.

Cosi offers good choices and the service is good but in the end it's just chain food, bland, tasteless and consistently so.

Good salads, I really like the signature. Also the traditional pizza for the kids and the turkey lite sandwich are nice. The servers are mostly friendly, I've visited this location several times.

Barbecue chicken pizza was ok. Tomato soup tasted like it came out the can. Avocado bowl did not taste fresh. Good flat bread.

Not to exciting. Just another quick sandwich and soup place a bit over priced for what is on offer. Reasonably fast service. It just that one can do better.

I can't give this Cosi a bad review as it has done nothing wrong and the food is typical for any Cosi. The staff is nice and the atmosphere is good. This is a smaller location, but the people watching is good if you get at the bar facing the street.
