Amazing cookies we tried the four different varieties between us and they were all gorgeous. Favourites were the oatmeal and raisin and the choc peanut butter. Really nice guy at the counter too. Go!

I was in the area and thought I'd see what all the fuss was about. Trust me, it's definitely worth the effort, and it's not hard to find! It was basically blizzarding outside so everyone was crammed inside trying to order and get warm. They are constantly baking up a storm so the cookies are warm off the press! I... More

Loved the chocolate chocolate chip cookie, but the baguette with raspberry jam and butter was heavenly.

I travelled specifically uptown to find this bakery on a snowy day because the reviews were so good. I kind of wished I hadn't. Its easy to miss as its very small. I went in and nearly fell down the steep flight of stairs! There was no queue, maybe because of the weather. The guy behind the counter wasn't exactly... More

walk in and the place smells sooooooo good. The bread is great, cookies are reeeeeeeaaaalllyyy good. If I had a gallon of milk, I would have stood in there and eaten until I couldn't walk! Will go back next month when in town.

Back in December Levain we're number 1 of trip advisor. So of course we had to go and see what the fuss was about. Not disappointed what so ever. Very friendly staff, absolutely amazing food. I want this in my neighbourhood!

Can't really say anything more than the title of this review. The BEST cookies in the world let alone NYC!! Slightly off the beaten track but a perfect stop en route to the Natural History Museum as about 3 blocks away. A little blue bakery on the right when walking from Central Park along 167 West. It's quite easy to... More

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.
