The daily commute can be a real challenge, which is why plenty of locals view paces like Cosi as a lifesaver. Cosi’s Ballston location is a one-stop shop for students and nine-to-fivers alike, and ever since this place opened, it’s been host to a steady stream of regulars queueing up for coffee, pastries, and bagels to stay fueled through the morning rush.
At lunchtime, people pop in for salads, soups, and other made-to-order favorites. Yelpers particularly recommend the “taste two” combo, which offers a cup of soup and half a sandwich with bread, chips, or veggies on the side. Later in the day, students start to arrive for study sessions, using coffee and sweets to get them through their schoolwork. Finally, as the local offices begin to close for the day, you’ll find folks stopping in for a quick slice of pizza or panini at the end of a long day.
Cosi is quickly becoming a household name, and you’ll see why when you stop in. This fast-casual restaurant is super convenient, offering order online for the days you just don’t have time to wait for your lunch, as well as free wi-fi for those working lunches and catering options for when you want to bring breakfast, lunch or dinner to the office to share.
For breakfast, you can miss trying their signature Squagel, a square bagel with either with cream cheese or as hearty breakfast sandwich. Steel cut oatmeal and egg white cups are also available for a lighter option.
Lunch is the best time for a Cosi visit, when you can get a tangy and delicious pesto chicken sandwich or a creamy but healthy Smart Fit turkey and brie. Their signature bowls feature options like Thai curry atop a bed of grains, or try a classic soup and salad combo, like broccoli cheddar soup and a Smart Fit salad full of super foods. Come get cozy at Cosi every day of the week for fresh foods served in a welcoming atmosphere.
