The chocolate chip cookies are amazing. We bought three different kinds and they were all big, fluffy and very moist. So good we went back for more.

I've known Levain for many years and they finally opened a larger location in the Upper West Side. They still sell out of my favorite sour cream coffee cake unfortunately. They really should stock more of that since it's their most popular item. I highly...More

Ok, cookies have forever been changed for me. Levain bakery’s cookies are now what all cookies shall from hence forth be judged by. Can’t think of one cookie in the world that will de-throne this king/queen of cookies. So if you are in NYC, and...More

These cookies are amazing! There is not much more that can be said. They do have a small selection of cookies, but they focus on perfection! If it's raining, you will want to go to the newer one because there is more of a line...More

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

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.
