Who does not know how great this place is? Go Connie. Let's hope new owners don't mess up the fabulous basics.

Simply the best chunk of dough, sugar, butter (lots of it!), and quality ingredients money can buy. These cookies are not dainty nuggets. They're thick mounds of warm goodness that should not be missed. No bad choices here. Wish they had just a plain chocolate...More

The cookies here are gigantic and delectable. The flavors are awesome. The rest of the bakery items I did not try but assume it will equally be tasty.

This was a lucky find for us. We had been to Levain in the city but this was a surprise to see in the Hamptons. The cookies are served warm and ooey gooey as all good cookies should be. $4 a pop but worth it....More

Nestled in New York City's Upper West Side, Levain headquarters is a cozy neighborhood bakery where locals are greeted by name. A steady stream of loyal regulars stand side by side with tourists, eager to sample the legendary baked goods. From an inventive array of rustic breads to the world-famous six-ounce chocolate chip walnut cookie, everything is baked on-site, fresh every day from the finest natural ingredients. What doesn't sell that day goes to help feed the hungry-a mission that has been solidly in place since the beginning. The bakery was founded in 1994 by friends Connie McDonald and Pam Weekes. At the time, Connie was in banking and Pam in Fashion. The two, both competitive swimmers, trained together for the Ironman and-not surprisingly, as their tireless workouts left them feeling starved for great food- they began a passionate dialog about creating the world's greatest chocolate chip cookie. Within just a few years, Levain Bakery had become a neighborhood institution and a destination for epicurious travelers from around the world. Demand continued to grow. In 2000, to satisfy their regular clientele summering in the Hamptons, the two opened a second bakery in the village of Wainscott on Long Island's East End. And today, through their website, they now ship their world-famous cookies to happy fans around the globe.
