My husband and I ate here for dinner, and it was very good. Their signature salad was very good, as well as my husband's sandwich..would definitely return.

The service here is very quick and the food is pretty good. So many healthy options to choose from (salads, sandwiches, soup). Popular spot at my work.

I had half of everything (sandwich, salad, soup, and a cookie) everything was really good, nutritious, service was very nice. The bread is made in wood oven, the outcome is definitively worth to try!

I have spent years cultivating myself as a coffee connoisseur. I buy green beans from all over the world and roast them myself. I am used to only the best when it comes to coffee. On a recent trip to Chicago, I flew on an airline and stayed in a hotel both of which served only Starbucks coffee which is... More

Due to bad eyesight cannot read the board. The printed menu's are confusing and according to staff not up to date. But this they told after payment! Strange that the problem is then left with the customer, because 'we are not allowed to do snything'. Please management, give your staff some room for solution! You lost a customer now. In... More

We had just got off Amtrak at Union Station and we were hungry. Decided to try Cosi and was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was.

This is a great place to get a healthy, quick meal without breaking the bank. I had their Asian Salad w/wild Alaskan Salmon and it was really good. It came with their signature whole grain flatbread fresh from the oven...I could have made a meal out of this alone. I also ordered a brownie and it was decent, but certainly... More

We were excited to see Cosi across from the Art Institute. We had eaten at a Cosi in Paris France and had a good experience. This restaurant though slightly different didn't disappoint. There are many choices of sandwiches and salads. Even though we stopped there during lunch time the food was always prepared quickly and seating was available. The location... More

Almost fast food....but a bit better. An interesting choice of salads, sandwiches and drinks make this an interesting place for a quick bite. This is a busy but good branch.

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.
