    YES SO GOOD. This bakery is right off of the subway stop for 116th St on the A-line. Multiple mornings during our stay here, we hopped off the subway just to hit up Levain for breakfast on our way to Uptown. So good

    I really appreciated on of the bakers washing their hands and cleaning the knife before packaging my order. Their treats are really yummy and worth the price!!😋

    A crazy Aussie friend told me about this place and I didn't believe him. Today I was walking by and stumbled upon Levain Bakery in Harlem (the original one I think is somewhere in W 70s) so had to check whether he was right. And he was, I got two chocolate chips and walnut cookies which I have to say where amazing and the best I've had so far not only in NYC but in the U.S. Super tasty and filling, I need to go and get more. Not pricey either at 4 bucks each, money very well spent. They also serve other cookies and cakes which I did not try so I need to go again. Coffee available too but no seating in this place, only take away. OMG the cookies were so good!

    These cookies are my reason for living! Before you laugh, EAT ONE. What you consider high end confection will change forever. The only bakery holding a candle to these guys is Dominique Ansel, and he's a legend. STOP READING, GO GET YOU SOME CHOCOLATE WALNUT COOKIES RIGHT NOW! RUN, DON'T WALK!!!

    I came here once about 12 years ago with my dad and brother. My dad had read a review about the "best cookies in New York" and thought that it would be a nice treat. We decided to walk there and spent about 3 hours trekking through New York City to find this tiny bakery that offered cookies the size of my fist. At the time they were the best cookies I had ever had and as we sat on the little bench outside we ate the cookies and listened to the city experiencing a very rare moment of peace and satisfaction. 3 years ago I found myself in New York City again with my partner. I had told him about the Bakery and we decided to retrace my adventure almost a decade before. We arrived at the same place ordered the exact same cookies and I sat on the same bench completely bowled over at how I was having the same experience again. The baked goods here are incredible and perhaps my sentimental attachment to them sways my opinion but I can't wait until the next time that I am in New York so I can do it again.

    This place is has amazing cookies! They have a limited menu, but these cookies could be a meal or split between multiple people. I can't decide between chocolate chip walnut, chocolate chocolate, or oatmeal raisin. They are all delicious. This is only 1 of the locations, but the lesser known spot so never a huge line. Definitely reccomend the place...

    Always on the hunt for the best bakeries. This place generates some of the thickest cookies and pastries. They are soft and delish. Had the double chocolate& oatmeal raisin. 😋

    As if a cookie was just a cookie. Levain's bakery cookies are edible pieces of heaven. Unfortunately I am a recovering cookie addict as of today I will not be having anymore of these cookies ever(or maybe til next week hehe). With a selection of 4 monster size cookies and a couple of more baked goodies I would highly recommend this place to anyone

    Small shop but the lines are shorter than the w 74th location. Some of the best chocolate chip walnut cookies in NYC. Much bigger and heartier than traditional chocolate chip cookies. Prices were $4 per cookie. If you have a sweet tooth, one per person is fairly manageable.

    Truly is an amazing bakery, such fresh pastries of all kind. I literally tried one of everything and they were all at least warm just baked. You can't go wrong. Come here for quality baked goods and flaky airy soft croissants. Don't be scared of any lines, they move quickly and during the day around 10 I've never had to wait long.
