You don’t often eat both tasty and healthy whenever you grab a sandwich in Paris. That’s why I’m happy there is a place like Cosí.
This small fast-food restaurant (you order on the ground floor and eat on the first floor or take away) specializes in good Italian-like sandwiches, with such sunny ingredients like tapenade, goat cheese, rocket, or grilled aubergines…
But the menu also includes meat or fish-based sandwiches and also salads and soups for colder days. The bread used is soft and tasty, which reminds me of Italian focaccia. And if you are on a budget, don’t buy any drinks — the first floor offers free tap water and plastic glasses.
Located in the trendy area between Saint-Michel and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, it’s a great place in the spring and summer seasons to buy sandwiches before heading to the neighboring Pont des Arts (walk North on Rue de Seine) and have a picnic on the bridge!
