I just love the cookies at this place. They are so fresh. They are served warm and so tasty. They are worth the price of $4 dollars a piece. I highly recommend! I go every time I’m in New York.

Want a REAL treat? treat yourself to a chocolate chip cookie at Levain. Warning, it will be the size of a large muffin and will ruin you for any other cookie after. Just thinking about it make me salivate. Nom nom nom.

I would say 1-2 days. The decadent cookie is soft and the chocolate gooey. Just had them again yesterday!

I find the line is shortest as soon as they open (get there 5 minutes before opening if you really want to go in & out). Even when we go at opening time, by the time we leave with our purchases, there's a line. There's... More
