Levain Bakery’s Cookies Are Simply The Best


Levain Bakery’s cookies ($3.75 each) are simply the best. I’ve said it before and after eating at least 2 every week for the past month, I’m saying it again. Levain’s chocolate chip walnut cookie is the best I’ve ever had. Unlike most of my other “best claims”, I can’t imagine this one will be topped. They’re even more amazing when warm so ask for them to be tossed back in the oven for a few seconds or do it yourself at home. Below you’re looking at a Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip cookie crowning a Chocolate Chip Walnut. I imagine every meal in heaven starts and begins with cookies from Levain.

    those cookies are totally drool-worthy.

  2. Lil NYC Food Guy Says:

    I agree. I had one when it was a week and a half old and it was still the best cookie ive ever had. The price is a little steep for one cookie, but it is huge and definitely worth it. After that first bite of warm chocolately deliciousness, you forget completely about the $3.75 that isn’t in your pocket anymore.

    Veggie Girl

    You said it sister. I couldn’t agree more.

    Lil NYC Food Guy,

    Ditto dude. These cookies have so much butter in them, I think they’d be good a month later. I disagree that the price is a little steep. It sounds bad when you first hear it but once you get that 6 ounce cookie in your hands and destroy it, you realize you’d probably have spent $5 for it. Let’s hope Levain doesn’t take that idea to heart.

    Hands down best cookies ever. They’re the only cookies I dream about… probably because I have their postcard hanging on the wall next to my bed. That’s how good they are. Chocolate Chip Walnut is definitely the way to go.

  5. the real cookie monster Says:

    the chocolate cookie with chocolate chips is by far better than the other two cookies you feature here. these are the best fuckin cookies i’ve ever had too, but why not pic of the double-chocolate? wtf?

  6. The NYC Food Guy Says:


    You must wake up hungry. I have that same postcard, doesn’t do justice to the cookies.

    Cookie Monster,

    Sorry Mr Monster, I’ll try to get up double chocolate pic up asap, it’s so rich and decadent and the choc. chip walnut is so good, I haven’t been able to justify getting the double chocolate in a while. Maybe it’s time for a change. Keep your eyes peeled.

    You know what would go great with that chocolate chip walnut cookie? MAYO! j/k!! I saw smother it with nutella and whipcream and smush it together with haagan daz vanilla icre cream.

  9. The NYC Food Guy Says:


    Wow. That sounds amazing. I don’t think you need the nutella or whipped cream though, just the cookies and ice cream. Which cookies and flavor would you use?

    Went to the bakery in East Hampton tonight- didn’t realize it’s cash only- and the baker gave me my order of a half dozen for free. She said to get them next time. That stuff doesn’t happen anymore and thought I’d share :).
