Do the chocolate chip cookie. Period. This is trendy—and the business is doing very well just by word of mouth and their delicious cookies.

The best peanut butter cookie ever!! Going to NY I will sure go back there every time. The place is small, it is a grab and go, but it is worth it for the cookie.

Not to miss in any visit to NYC. And they now have another couple locations open, in particular one just down the street from the original on 74th. The cookies are unbeatable - I recommend one of each. The chocolate brioche is also fantastic -...More

We missed this place twice as it is very small. But when we found it... we tasted the best cookies of our lives, not joking! They are HUGE (so, it's worth $4 for one cookie), so yummy.

And the cakes and breads are nothing to sneeze at either. Go for the cookies but grab a baguette or a slice of coffee cake too

Went after work and they did not have much left =( The pizza we ordered was too burnt and the staff weren't that friendly either.

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.
