“Surprisingly bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

I am reading the other reviews and surprised that people like this place. We went to Penelope first but they had an hour wait so we had over here. Kind of run down, everything is peeling and looks like it is not taking care of. Service was below average with a bit of attitude at first but I think she just had a bad day.... It was 5 of us ordering orange juice, coffee and some sandwiches but took them 15 minutes to prepare. We ordered wheat tortillas with eggs and spinach....mistake. Tortillas are dry and the eggs are made from powder - at least that's how it taste like.
In NewYork where competition is huge to be the best and to give the best service possible ON Park Avenue, this place is a joke!

“Great for Breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

This is a great place to eat breakfast or lunch. It is quick. You watch them make your breakfast fresh. There is a great selection and it is reasonably priced.

“Get the Squigle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

Great breakfast place! Oatmeal is excellent but the Squiggle is awesome. Fresh and hot out if the oven, it's a bagel and delicious roll in one. Add veggy cream cheese and you won't be disappointed Will definitely go back!

“Good place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2013 via mobile

It is a place with a good atmosphere. You can sit and eat in the cafe, and just take food with them. Very quick service. High quality blow and tasty dishes. As the availability of its bakeries, which are preparing delicious bread, gives more attractive cafes. Here perfectly prepared latte. I recommend to try the Caesar salad with shrimp. It is also worth noting the presence of comfortable sofas and free wi-fi.

“good sandwiches, great bread, disappointing salads”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

The bread is always good at Cosi. The sandwich line is well organized and gives you a good product. Here's the personal dilemma: The bread is delicious, but it is bread, and I am trying to cut back on empty calories. You can get whole grain, which is very good.

The salads are very disappointing. Mainly greens, with thimble sized portions of whatever you are adding. It ends up being a plate of leaves. There are innumerable salad bars around New York where you can get more generous portion of vegetables that make a more interesting, healthful and filling salad.

It's a fun atmosphere to go with co-workers. You feel like you are taking a break from work by being there. They create a good social atmosphere, without it just seeming like a deli.
