An inviting chain that offers a refreshingly tasty breakfast and lunch spread.
Average cost: <$10
Self-described as "your ultimate place to drink, dine, and unwind from wake-up call to last call," this surprisingly inviting chain is a great downtown choice for the business professional's "last call"—this location closes at 7 p.m. on weekdays.
There aren't many corporate cafes that attribute their design inspiration to the artist Mondrian, hang bulletin boards that display community happenings to encourage "the neighborhood feel," and serve up a fun-as-fondue, "roast your own" platter of S'mores for two or four...which makes Cosi a spot we'll vouch for.
Beyond that, you can enjoy turkey and brie sandwiches, Shanghai Chicken salads, margherita pizza and more, including a full breakfast offering of omelet sandwiches, bagels and apple crumb cake. An Artic Mocha (a blended espresso beverage) provides the perfect caffeine kick for those 3 p.m. lulls.
