Simply amazing cookies. The interior melts in your mouth, like Jesus coming on you and tasting your soul. Truly nice cookies, they rocked my world

I first discovered this place when I went to the upstairs business and noticed the constant line out the door. After the first taste of the chocolate chip cookie, I was completely hooked. I love to share food but I won't share these cookies. I would buy a cookie for each person in the group. It's a must stop on... More

The double chocolate chunk is the best cookie ever. Worth the wait, worth the walk.You will know you have arrived when you see people standing on line with children, umbrellas, dogs and happy looks on their faces.

I LOVE all Levain cookies, but the classic chocolate-chip-walnut is by far my favorite. Be warned - they are huge and are almost a meal! Blueberry muffins are also yummy.

Delicious cookies. They must weigh a pound each. So chewy and sinfully delicious. Just make sure you walk it off while strolling around Central Park, around the corner.

These desserts are very good here. The cookies are fantastic. Take my word for it, unless you are a bottomless pit you will not be able to eat more than one in a setting (you may want to shoot for half or a quarter of one.) This is not your regular corner bakery or Panera - these are very rich... More

We found out about Levain here. You people know your cookies. Best chocolate chip cookie I've ever eaten and I've had a few. Go here...whatever it takes. Don't leave NYC without a chocolate chip cookie from this awesome bakery.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
