Levain Bakery {New York, NY}

I know... I just exploded with an influx of New York foodie posts, but I just wanted to get them out of the way! The 'Eating Out' NY page is now officially updated :)
AH Levain Bakery, I love you. More honestly, I LOVE your chocolate chip walnut cookies! I've heard much, much, much goodness about Levain Bakery and their famous cookies and my visit to New York would have been utterly incomplete without it.
I mean how good can a cookie be? I make cookies all the time, and though I do love my cookies, they will never come even close to how good these cookies are. First, they are ginormous - almost the size of a large scone and they weigh about half a pound! They come to you warm, and when you break it apart, it's still gooey and melty inside - unbelievable. Basically these cookies are the best I've ever had, and no, I am not exaggerating!
Ahhhh, gooey ooey deliciousness.


  1. Hahaha! Cookie porn for sure - look at that blissful chunk of chocolate

    You don't understand how jealous I am of you!!
    All these WONDERFUL posts of aweesome foodness from NYC. I just came back from a weekend trip to NYC, but I couldn't hit ANY of the good foodie spots at all!!! We were mainly preoccupied with playing with my little niece, so we couldn't really travel much. Boooo.
    Next time! I'm going to take your list of "bests" and come back victorious! :)

  3. @ Sarah: please do!! you must, must, must visit Levain - I am 100% positive you'll absolutely love it! And when you do, please share :)

  4. That last picture...oh goodness. I can't believe that I have not been to Levain Bakery yet. Now after seeing all that chocolatey yumminess, I must go... Tomorrow!

  5. My god those cookies look good! cookie Porn indeed!

  6. YUM YUM YUM! Cookie porn is hilarious! LOL
    Can't wait to try this.

  7. A trip back to NYC is never complete without going to Levain! I always tell visiting friends to stop there, but somehow they always get sidetracked to trendier but lame places. I love the brioche "sticks" stuffed with chocolate. So wonderful! I saw this post on foodgawker and immediately knew it was Levain!!

  8. i love levain dearly. wonderful read!
