Description: 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.

The chocolate chip cookie is the best I e ever had.. It's so good I haven't tried anything else.. There's a line out the door usually but it's worth the wait.. The bakery is very tiny with a couple of stools. I always get two cookies. One to eat right away and one to take home.. They are always fresh and warm.. Enter thing else they have looks amazing..

Decadent perfect texture. They know exactly when to take them oit of the oven. Poor a glass of milk and be on cloud 9. Worth breaking any diet!

If you want something worth the calories, go to Levain Bakery. The best ever cookie muffin. My favorite is the Chocolate PeanutButter. Makes me want to eat one right now.

It's a carry-out bakery, not a restaurant, and has the richest, most buttery and artery clogging chocolate chip cookies in NYC as far as I know. There's usually a line outside the bakery, so if you're in a rush you might need to return. The oatmeal cookies are also excellent though not as rich.
