“Love the salads, but sandwiches are great too.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

A choice place for lunch or takeout, but Cosi is cozy (there's even a sofa) and a good place to just hang out for a cold drink or coffee.

It's a chain, but a unique one. Lots of competition in Reston Town Center, like Panera bread and Counter Burger, but this beats most.

“Ok environment - food was excellent”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Staff wasn't real helpful in explaining how to order - ended up getting their sandwich thingy - which tasted great. Had to make two trips up to get a drink. Not familiar with their system and they weren't real forthcoming with directions.

“I LOVE Cosi”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

I love Cosi and go there often when I'm in Reston - the flatbread is delicious and consistently fresh. The soups and salad are also very good. There is a lot of indoor seating and a limited amount of outdoor seating. I wish that we had a Cosi in Loudoun County/Ashburn!!! My favorite sandwiches are Buffalo Blue, Chicken Tomatoe/Basil/Mozzarella (TBM), and I love the tortilla soup!

“pretty good!”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

The food is very good, but the service is just horrible and slow. they fixed it up a little, but they still need to improve. One thing i suggest to get for dessert is the smores! you roast them over a mini fire!
