Cosi..., Philadelphia: 4 reviews and 2 photos


. . . the more they stay the same. Cosi used to be known as Xando. It's a chain of coffeehouses that's just a little more than a place for an cup of joe. In fact, they have pretty good sandwiches and other light lunch items as well as great desserts. At night, the coffee tends to come with a kick. You can get Irish coffee, or whisky in your coffee, or even just a beer.

Favorite Dish: Although, I prefer a mom and pop type of a place, this place does put out a quality product and you'll definitely meet plenty of locals at all hours of the day hanging out here.

Try the Signature Salad . . . walnuts, gorgonzola, cranberries . . . yum.
