Usually a good place for a quick salad but not today. Today they have signs covering half the menu with food not in stock. I had to educate the staff on things missing from their standard salad order. They were out of Diet Coke in...More

This location (across from a busy Starbucks) can be hit or miss. I usually go for breakfast and LOVE their Squagels (square bagels). The guys running the baking section always friendly and helpful. The cashiers can be very rote and - unless yiu ask for...More

I have to give Cosi a mixed review, but overall good marks. 3 trips to this spot in 3 days so it must have been OK. First the pizza was very good. Next day at 10:55am we asked for a breakfast item and were told...More

I go to this Cosi primarily for breakfast because I love their Squagels (square bagels). Lately the register staff have been - shall I say - "off". They have two types of coffee (medium and dark roast) and, if I forget to choose one, they...More

Cosi has changed it's concept at least three times this year. The latest is to change their coffee and put in a varietal plus a XANDO blend. They are giving 10 cents from every cup to a local food bank. BUT they raised the price...More

The food selections are very good for this type of restaurant and the bread is delicious. This particular Cosi has staff who are pretty consistently friendly and helpful. The restaurant is in a great location in Center City (downtown) Philly.

Love that this location was close to my hotel. While husband was at convention, I was able to breakfast here. The coffee was excellent. Healthy choices for food, so this is great for a "fast" food location. I will look forward to going there again.
