BEST COOKIES IN NYC (in my opinion)

BEST COOKIES EVER! You can find them on West 74th, it was about a 15-20 minute stroll from the bottom of Central park. They're not particularly cheap but they are worth every cent and crumb. I bought 4 to bring back to London with me and I think they weighed 1-2kgs - no kidding! Telly our friends... read more

These cookies are so delicious! They are crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. If your looking for dessert on the upper west side, this is the place to get it! What a treat!

I have had a number of things from here and while they have all been pretty good, it is the cookies that really shine!

The cookies at Levain are amazing! You will not be disappointed! The staff were friendly, helpful and very good at their jobs. They keep people moving through the store quickly while still making you feel like they're happy to visited their bakery. I've been twice and will definitely go back again. They are rather sweet so you may need to... More

Weekend morning walks end up at Levain for coffee and cookies. Hey we walked off a lot of calories so that we can eat those yummy cookies. Service is always friendly and people walk out of their store with big smiles or munching those great cookies.

By now I'm sure you've already read a Plethora of great reviews about Levan, but I had to add mine to the list. When I stopped by the bakery on a lazy Sunday afternoon, there was a line of people standing in the rain waiting to get inside just for cookies. And yes, they are worth it. Best chocolate chip...

Best cookies in the world! Small bakery, long line outside... But it worth every minute you spend waiting for your turn to buy some.

I heart cookies, like anything. But this is not a cookie to me, it's more a fudge/ brownie trying to be a cookie. My ranking comes from a preference for a crispy to moist ratio of 55:45, just not 15:80.

This place is amazing. Best cookie I've ever had by far. A little tough to find, in the basement under the wax store. A little bit of a line but they move through the line very quickly. 4 bucks per cookie but the cookies are huge and delicious so well worth it. Enjoy!

My niece was looking forward to seeing other places she had heard of in NYC (M&M world for one) but she will remember the wonderful cookies we had after a nice visit to Central Park. Thanks to Levain - I was a cool aunt that knew about "the cookie place"! We had three kinds and all were very good -... More

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.
