With the exception of our pickiest eater, we can usually count on Cosi for a quick meal, which is what we were looking for just before picking up a rental car at the mall next door (don't do that).

This is one place to visit if you like flat bread sandwiches. They have a great variety of greek sandwiches. I have tried chicken tbm and pesto chicken melt. The bread is freshly baked and has the right mix of soft as well as crisp the vegetables used are fresh and crunchy. Their Mediterranean lentil and broccoli cheddar soups are... More

Thankfully this is a chain and the food is reliable but the management of this place needs an overhaul. From the dirty floors to the even dirtier bathrooms, inefficient lines, cash register having no change, coffee makers not knowing what the orders are. Overly loud music ...I could go on.

Located across from the Marriott and the Path station allows you quick and convenient breakfast and lunch choices at reasonable prices. The bread choices and interesting sandwich creations make this an ideal quick and easy stop to grab breakfast or lunch. They also offer iced teas and lemonade. The sandwiches are always fresh and the salad choices seemed endless.

I have been to this place 6-8 times as it is close to the hotel we stay at when we visit NYC over the past year. The service is horrifically slow. Part of the problem is how the food station is set up. It is terribly inefficient. The "cooks" have no manners, no personality, no sense of customer service. They... More

Workers here always pretty friendly. There's a Chicken/Rice/Avocado/Vegetables dish (Chicken Abuelo Bowl or something) that I think is terrific for the money.

I always stop at Cosi for breakfast when I am in Jersey City. They have a good selection of breakfast items and I like staff who are great.

More than a basic coffee shop, the food is also really quite good, and the outside tables a great place for people-watching.

As a change from the hotel breakfast bar routine, we went a few blocks to Cosi's for breakfast. Their square bagels, fresh orange juice, good coffee and tea is always a family treat. Service seems random, but the folk behind the counters work as a team to get your breakfast ready. All is prepared in front of you. Enjoy!

Opted for breakfast here after spending our second night at the Marriott Courtyard located just across the street. Had a fruit cup - and you know how these can be - but this fruit cup was really sensational. Fruits was a nice variety and crisp to the bite. Very very fresh. Outdoor seating was nice. They could use a few... More
