“omg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

These are the best ever chocolate experience. In between a cookie and a brownie they are fantastic. Chocolate and peanut butter , what a combination. Balls of peanut butter all the way through and so chocolatey. How do they do that. WE tried all varieties, then went back for more to take home. ( not on the same day) What a tough decision which ones to buy again. Not cheap but compared to some other NY food options tried, good value and the were THE BEST. Im telling everyone to go

“Deliciousnesss :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Wooow these cookies are amazing. This place is tiny and only has four flavours. But that's all they need because they are warm and crunchy on the outside with a soft, gooey filing. You must go when you are in New York.

“Best cookie ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

That was definitely the tastiest cookie I've ever eaten. I had the oatmeal one. My friend had the chocolate one and it looked amazing too.

“Fantastic brioche & cookies.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Chocolate brioche was fantastic. I went back for the cinnamon brioche the next day, but it had already sold out. Get it before 11am since they sell out after that.. The cookies were gigantic (and $4 a pop) with a brownie like interior. A bit sweet for me though. The brioche was less sweet which suited me.

“Wish I can eat all the time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I think Levain Bakery has the best cookies in New York City. We love Dark Chocolate Walnut and Oatmeal Raisin A LOT. If no concern on weight nor sugar consumption, one may want to eat all the time. Oh, money can be also problem to some since these cookie costs over $4 each.
