The Best Cookies of NYC: You Must Try Them!

These are definitely the best cookies of NYC! Sooooo good and so fresh! They’re warm and soft in the middle with melting chocolate… OMG! You’ll find them at LEVAIN Bakery.

If the locals love this place and go over and over again, it’s because it’s that good 😉

Cool Tips For When You Go to Levain Bakery
  • Eat them at the moment you buy them because they’re so yummy when they’re warm!
  • One cookie is very fulfilling! They are pretty heavy.
  • You can freeze them. Just put them at room temperature when you wanna eat them or directly into a 350-degree oven until warmed through. I’d still recommend you to eat them fresh at the moment you buy them 🙂
  • Many people that aren’t fan of cookies, loooove the cookies at this place. I’m one of them!
  • The line is worth it! It goes quickly.
  • Keep in mind that there are no tables at their locations! You can eat them standing up though.

Hi there :) I'm Jess and I came to NYC to pursue my dream and I feel I'm living it every day. New York is magical and you have to be open to everything because you never know who is sitting next to you on the subway or behind you in the line of the supermarket. I decided to create this blog about NYC because I realized how many powerful tips would have helped me if I knew them before coming to the city from someone who was living in NY! So I thought that it would be awesome to share with you some tips about New York from a New Yorker. I'm going to keep updating this blog so stay tuned :)
