Levain Bakery is famous for its giant, delicious cookies. The Chocolate Chip Walnut and Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookies are crispy outside and gooey inside. Despite long lines and limited seating, the friendly staff and tasty treats make it worth it. Levain Bakery is a...must-visit in NYC.More

I've been looking forward to try this since ever and idk if it's just me but there's nothing special about it. Or maybe I hyped myself up way too much that I expected a lot from it. Anyway, it's good but not good enough for...me to come back.More

The OG fat cookie. We got 4 and my favourite was chocolate chip & walnut. Delicious! Husband wasn’t blown away though. It was a cute little shop. The packaging was beautiful but maybe a tad unnecessary and wasteful.

Took the original chocolate chip cookie and the dark chocolate peanut cookie. Both were great. The first one was a bit better but still. They are other good CCC in New York, but this still worth a visit.

To be clear, this review isn't about the product, because I haven't gotten it. I requested cookies be shipped to me on a certain date. Not immediately; a week and a half out, so there was no rush for the bakery. They should have had...no issue fulfilling my order. Today is the selected delivery day, and the cookies haven't even shipped yet. The last tracking check says the projected delivery is three days from now. I don't care how good the product turns out to be; bad service is a complete deal-breaker for me. They can be the best cookies on the planet and I'll never order them again, because the company can't deliver when promised, ON MY FIRST ORDER. These items are NOT cheap; the very least the bakery can do is ship to be delivered on time. If they can't, they have zero business shipping their products to begin with and shouldn't even offer that service.More

Levain cookie contains 46.5 g sugar and 680 calories. That tells it all. Please do not buy this cookies they will destroy your health. The bakery must reduce amount of sugar in each cookie.

I was excited to try the cookies! They didn’t disappoint. Moist, full of flavor and chocolate! We got the oatmeal, double chocolate and chocolate chip. So big they could be an entire meal!

Tiny little room with a big impact. They’re was a line outside when we got there. While their walnut chocolate scone was exceptionally tasty and rich, the baguette that we got was very plain and nothing special. It s worth a try.
