Looking for a comfortable, relaxing little restaurant? Xando, the restaurant known for its great coffee, joined forces with Cosi to make the ultimate hang-out spot for everyone. Cosi is well known for their flat crust Romano bread used for pizza and sandwiches. The flat crust bread is freshly baked daily.
Cosi originated in Paris. The owner, Drew Harre, agreed to let two brothers, Jay and Shep Wainwright, bring Cosi to America. The brothers brought the shop to New York in February of 1996.The restaurant was a big hit in New York. After their continued success, the brothers decided to take Cosi to the neighborhoods of D.C., Boston, and Philadelphia.
Cosi is vegetarian and diet friendly by giving you an easier way to have great tasting food that will keep you healthy. On their menu they have a symbol of a ‘wheat grain’ for vegetarian foods and a symbol of an ‘apple’ to represent low fat foods and dressings. Whatever drink (non-alcoholic) that you are in the mood for, Cosi has it. The drinks go from the hot and tasty ‘Double oh! Arctic mocha’ made with Oreo cookies and whip cream, to the cool icy flavor of ‘Wild berry blast’ arctic fruit smoothie.
If you want to add more fun to your Cosi experience, you can go to the Cosi website at www.getcosi.com and order a Smores kit to make at home. The kits aren’t available in the stores; you can only get them from the website. Cosi also sells whole coffee beans and gift cards from their site and in stores.
