Cosi is always good

I eat at Cosi in different locations and one of the best things about it is the quality does not waver. Always fresh and tasty. Although there is no wait staff, the sweetest woman got us napkins and cleared our table.

Most of the restaurants were closed on Saturday afternoon since this area is considered the financial district. We were happy to find Cosi open since we just arrived on the Amtrak. The atmosphere was pleasant and the food was great. The staff was so friendly. We had sandwiches and great latte!

We stopped in for breakfast with some friends. The staff was friendly, the food was great and the prices were good. Nice to have a low cost option for breakfast while staying in Chicago. Definitely recommend you visit.

The Cosi people have a number of eateries in the Chicago area. They make great sandwiches, soups, and salads at popular prices. It will be filling and healthy--at a low cost. In a city like Chicago it is nice to have low-cost options. I think you should stop-by one of their branches.

Great restaurant directly across from the Chicago Institute of Art. Food is reasonable and delicious. Bread is very tasty. They leave samples out while you are waiting for your food. Drinks are self serve. Worth a try.

Quick and friendly service...not your run of the mill sandwich shop. Sandwiches served on kind of a combination of flatbread and a pita bread...really good.

Cosi is good for a quick lunch. The rustic flatbread is good. I usually get the same thing, but I go less often now that they have reaised their prices again!

clean and bright but the food was just bad - not any better than cafeteria food - soupy oatmeal, tough bagels (or squagels as they call them) and coffee was basically dark water with no flavor. Maybe it was just a bad day, but I was simply not impressed

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
