I had the half pesto chicken melt with the tomato basil soup. Both were good, happily the chicken wasn't that rubbery nonsense you typically find in chains like this. My mom got the margherita flatbread pizza and said it was fine. They were very busy at lunch time. I see this more as a "pop in if you're in the... More

I love the fresh flat bread here -- great with sandwiches, salad, soup, and as a pizza crust. The chicken noodle soup was yummy -- not too salty either.

I thought since it was closed to Chipotle and it was always full, this place also will be as so. Big mistake. It was empty, seats broken, crayons in the wall, and the salad I ordered was disgusting out of a box. I left it there and the chicken was dry and didn't look eatable. The bread was dry and... More

This place is much better then Panera in terms of lunch. They have more options such as pizza and salads. I love their sandwich and salad combo deal. Their chicken margarita pizza is great. I also like the mojito lemonade. I highly recommend this place for lunch as I have been here several times during my lunch hour.

Cosi is on our rotation list for our staff lunch every Monday. I have always loved their steak gorgonzola melt! Their flatbread is very good whether it's the regular or multigrain. The parking lot is always busy tho, and sometimes hard to get in and out of, but it is worth it!

From pizzas to salads to sandwiches, Cosi is a great value for eating out. We have had their brick-oven-artisan pizzas, their salads, and their sandwiches. All were delicious! The service was so pleasant for a chain restaurant. Close to Rt. 175, I 95, and Rt. 32, yet set in a reasonably quiet strip-mall location. Often go out of my way... More

Just another average food chain exerience for myself. They offer a variety of soups, salads and other menu items. One orders their food, sits down and wait for it to be delivered. Server wasn't the best but what do you expect when such places pay minimum wages. My friend recieved the wrong soup order but give them credit for correcting... More

What makes Cosi special is their flatbread. They use it for their sandwiches, their pizza crust, and you get a piece on the side if you order a salad. Cosi has a great selection of menu items, and everything is made to order. It all tastes so fresh. This is a place where you order and pay at the counter,... More

As a preface, I have no negative feedback about the food. Okay, so the portions are small and the price is relatively high for a deli chain, but you receive a quality product every time. The seasonal option was pretty tasty--the turkey, cranberry, and stuffing sandwich. It was nothing short of a hearty Thanksgiving meal on artisan bread. My real... More

Keeping in mind that this is a fast-food experience, the sandwiches at Cosi are terrific. I like the turkey and brie with honey mustard. It all starts with the bread, which is very tasty and much better than at similar places. The turkey meat is fresh and tasty. And it all comes together nicely. As important, service is quick and...
