“Location, location, location.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

It certainly isn't the food, so it must be the location. Scrimpy portions, lousy service, and unimpressive menu don't add up to a wonderful dining experience. If they didn't have a swell location, they would be closed by now.

“Great Sandwiches”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

I love their sandwiches and salads! They use an open fire to roast the bread! So yummy! They have a great outdoor sitting area for dining in the summer.

“The standard Cosi”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Great location right at the intersection of Old Woodward and Maple. Very high traffic area and a corner location.

Food does not disappoint here. Service excellent. No complaints!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

Cosi is amazing for a quick breakfast or lunch and it is right in the heart of Birmingham on North Old Woodward!! Everything is simply awesome.

“A hot corner place in Birmingham- busy”
Reviewed September 29, 2008

Cosi is one of those places that is a meeting place, trendy like corner place to grab a bite- yes- the line and wait can be long, yes, it's the menu is like panera - but it's on a corner of go there, be seen, look important, etc- The staff is overworked and doing thier job- not out to impress--

I do think that the food is good- I like the chicken sandwich with fresh Moz and basil- but it is always crowded, I do eat from there if I can find a parking spot (50/50 chance)
