I am an avid home baker, and knowing my passion for cookies in particular, my friend brought me a Levain chocolate chip walnut cookie all the way from New York!!! (I live in Canada!) This was a simple, classic cookie executed to perfection. I enjoyed it as directed on the Levain cookie care card: I warmed it up in my oven for a few minutes, and the cookie, though a little over a day old by the time I got to it, was beautifully crisp on the outside and tender, sticky and gooey inside! The walnuts and chocolate chips were a perfect complement to each other, and while I personally prefer a less sweet cookie dough, the flavours in this cookie were undeniably well-balanced. And of course, this cookie was characteristically enormous. A full meal worth of cookie, as it were... though that didnt stop me from finishing the whole thing in one sitting, with some milk tea, shortly after dinner!

When I saw “best cookies of NY” I was hesitant… but let me tell you it is well worth the tittle.They were chunky, but smooth, just the right amount of sweetness, basically as good as one cookie can be.I liked not just the cookie but also the small bakery and branding.

Finally at Levain! Personally i think the cookies are very good, but not amazing. It lacks a bit of salt and dries out significantly when its a day old. The walnut chocolate chip is the best (very fresh walnuts! ) i love how quaint and small the place is. It get crowded anytime so come early and get in line.

We walked by Levain Bakery all the time, but rarely thought of getting bakery items inside until my family gifted us some cookies. They were delicious! I liked the Oatmeal Raisin cookie. My daughter likes anything with chocolate. I like how large the cookies were and their shapes were taller than other flat cookies I used to have. Definitely going back to get some for my friends.

Had really high expectations and wasn’t disappointed. The texture, the gooey middle and the occasional crunchy when biting the sides are just perfect.Took some in a box and crossed the Atlantic, they were still good after a few days (accidentally refrigerated against the advice that it should be frozen - was still good).

These cookies were simply amazing! Definitely visit if you love a soft cookie. We went for the walnut chocolate chip and dark chocolate and peanut butter cookie. They were both really good eaten warm outside the bakery!

Large space, served complimentary cold water. I got the two chipper, walnut chip and oatmeal cookie. They were all soft, sweet and amazing! Very large cookie and very delicious

I like the place, the decoration is minimalist and make you feel that you are in a small owned bakery. I didnt try the cookies instead I decided for something else the raspberry bomboline and a flat bread. The bomboline was lacking of filling and I didnt know the dough was going to be sourdough. The flat bread was ok a bit to salty. What I really didnt like was the customer service they rushed me to take my order even when it was just me at the time.

I first tried Levain cookies about 5 years ago and didn’t understand how there could be so much hype for a cookie (and I do love cookies). Then I got it. The crispy exterior, soft and goey, melt in your mouth middle is just perfect. Not to mention I don’t like baked goods with nuts in them and this cookie is the exception. I legit craved these cookies for two years during Covid and couldn’t wait to get back to NYC to have them again.Excellent customer service every time I go and great price point.Their new Two chip is great!

Soo good!! We tried their new Rocky Road cookie that they just released. Incredible.There was a couple behind us that had just gotten engaged in Central Park & decided to come here right after. It’s a great spot & locals know it too!
