Awesome cookies, great to takeaway with coffee and walk around the park. If you're on the upper west side, definitely check out Levain Bakery. Staff is always smiling and so nice. Great place!

Nora Ephron once said: "I look out the window and I see the lights and the skyline and the people on the street rushing around looking for action, love, and the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, and my heart does a little dance." Levain Bakery offers that world's greatest chocolate chip cookie! They only offer two chocolate chip cookies: dark... More

Stop in and buy a few. Try them for a few seconds in the microwave. The chocolate chip brioche is a truly divine "local" experience. The breads are good too but who has room after eating all that chocolate??

We were amazed by the cookies. We tried three. The double chocolate, the chocolate walnut, and the chocolate peanut butter. These were the most decadent cookies I ever had. Don't miss this place when you come to the big apple.

Best cookie with chocolate chips I've ever had. I don´t know how to explain it, but the cookie just melts in your mouth with a lot of chocolate. They serve them just fresh out of the oven. Spectacular, a MUST.

The cookies are divine. Definitely worth the calories! My fave was the chocolate chip walnut and the double chocolate. I wasn't too crazy about the peanut butter flavor and I love peanut butter so perhaps skip that one. The chocolate brioche was really, really good too. Definitely only buy what you are going to eat that day. We bought some... More
