One of my favorite go to spots for lunch. Always get the hummus veggie sandwich. Great quality and typically fast service depending upon the crowd.

this was a restaurant experience that belongs in a movie, and in fact it was, once, Jack Nicholson's Five Easy Pieces... asked for a squagel, a square sort of bagel and was told, without question, could not have one because it was 20 past 11 a.m. ... they were sitting there in a row but she couldn't serve me one...

The lunch choices were sufficient and the counter staff pleasant. The food was prepared quickly and... More

Impressed with quality and overall taste. Wish I had a Cosi near my home. Everything Sqaugle is awesome. Very nice staff.

I was greeted nicely. I had their turkey club which was good! You could hear the staff's personal conversations especially when checking out girls that walked into the restaurant. This little girl pour salt on the table, her mom just left it there. No one cleaned it up until what looked like a manager walked by it and instead of... More

Cosi served us just fine for a quick bite and some coffee on a late Sunday morning, but I was very disappointed that a chain restaurant, with loads of disposable plastic coffee cups/plastic, had no recycling bins! I asked the employee if there were any, and she seemed embarrassed. I wouldn't write a 'poor' review if it were just the... More

Right next door to the Omni. Blocks from historic sites. We stayed at the Omni and hit this place regularly for a quick bite before we hit the sites. A tad overpriced, but convenient! The food was all good.

OMG! Awesome Adobo Chicken with Avocado Bowl! This eatery is highly underrated! I am from California and this is THE BEST Mexican entre I have ever eaten! They make their own flatbread onsite continuously every day. Shortly after ordering the Adobo Chicken with Avocado Bowl, thechef came out to tell me it would take just a little longer because the...

the food is good, the employees are friendly and the food is good. I really enjoy the soups, the tomato and chicken torilla soup. The salads are good also. I have tried the rice bowls, the shrimp rice bowl was not that good, the shrimp were not seasoned, so the whole dish was bland. I enjoyed the chicken rice bowl... More
