I go to the Cosi at the 30th street Train station in Philadelphia. Always fast and good fresh food, you won't miss a train waiting for food here.

We had a quick breakfast while in Philly. Both service staff were friendly and quite pleasant. Note that the main lunch menu does not open until later -- we thought that you could have breakfast or lunch but that's not the case. The breakfast menu is more limited than the lunch menu.

We were in town dropping our daughter off at college and decided to grab a bite for lunch. Cosi offers a good selection of sandwiches, soups, salads, breakfasts, etc. I actually ordered the adobo chicken bowl and it was delicious. Everyone else with us enjoyed their choices as well. Nice location for a quick, tasty, reasonably priced meal.

I had a great sandwich and salad combination - that seemed fairly healthy. I've eaten at a couple of the Cosi restaurants in Philly and everything was always tasty. The bread they use for the sandwiches is almost like a flatbread and I believe they bake it onsite. I'd highly recommend it for a light and tasty lunch or dinner.

A very good place to start the morning in Philadelphia, Cosi has spots scattered around throughout the city. This one is very well placed on the west side so is convenient for a light bite. Start with coffee and a bagel or choose a sandwich or wrap with a breakfast touch for a bigger appetite. The bread is fresh out... More

One of my favorite go to spots for lunch. Always get the hummus veggie sandwich. Great quality and typically fast service depending upon the crowd.

this was a restaurant experience that belongs in a movie, and in fact it was, once, Jack Nicholson's Five Easy Pieces... asked for a squagel, a square sort of bagel and was told, without question, could not have one because it was 20 past 11 a.m. ... they were sitting there in a row but she couldn't serve me one...

Stopped into COSI because the other three lunch spots were too busy today. we were 3 businessmen on a short lunch break. we actually wanted a nice place to eat with wait service etc... but COSI was not that busy so we stepped in. The lunch choices were sufficient and the counter staff pleasant. The food was prepared quickly and... More
