“Good food in a "Cosi" cafe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

At Cosi I had a flatbread pizza, very unique made with fresh mozzarella. the atmosphere was very relaxed and the seating was comfortable. Right nearby is Rittenhouse Square, a green block of land with large trees and plenty of locals hanging out.

“One of our favorite places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Had to meet our night tour here and so went early to eat dinner. Their flat bread which came with our meals was very tasty. We both preferred the multi-grain one over white. I got a half sandwich of roasted vegetables and a side cesar salad. Loved all of it. Actually would've eaten there several times since it was right down from our hotel, the Holiday Inn Historic District, but we wanted to try different places each time. We were told there is a smore's dessert not on the menu you can order. You get a flame to melt everything but the tour guide said they get mad because they have to scrape those dishes hard to get the chocolate off. We planned to go back to order it but we tried the ice cream shop instead. Wish we'd get one of these in our area. Prices were the cheapest and the food the most "healthy" to choose from of where we went.

Good flatbread sandwiches and melts. Fast service even at lunch in downtown Philly. Plenty of seating. Raspberry ice tea was very good. Lunch 2x in 2 days

“Good food, dirty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

The food was great and service was fast and friendly. But the inside was in bad need of a good wash down, also the bathrooms were gross.
