“All hail” the “just-out-of-the-oven” chocolate chip cookies at these simple bakeries where the “hockey puck–sized” treats are “dense, gooey and decadent” ; “exceptional” breads, pastries and sandwiches are other reasons to go, just be ready for “impressively long lines” at the “tiny” Upper West Side flagship.

I would live off of Levain cookies if I could. Anytime anyone I know lives in the area/is visiting, I tell them they HAVE to go get cookies. The lines can be long, but they move quickly and are 100% worth the wait. I had a friend eat all four cookies in one evening (which he only sort of regretted), but I would probably suggest getting one for now and one for later. The cookies are better described as cookie mounds, and they are decadent. (I should add that their other pastries are just as fabulous; I like to pick up a muffin or some rolls for later when I go for my cookies).

They are only a few chairs, the place was just meant for a quick sweet tooth fix. Buy and go kinda thing. We did not have the melting gooeey chocolate in our cookie based on the video that we watched. Nonetheless, it was still a delicious cookie. Not the ordinary cookie you can get from a grocery store. It did not meet our expectations in terms of the melting chocolate in the middle.

The cookies are as good as they look. When I went I had chocolate chip and walnuts and an oatmeal cookie available (I liked the oatmeal better). I also purchased a chocolate chip brioche. The brioche tasted great but it was hard but after its warmed its heaven. They have have a few locations. I heard a new one on Douglas but this particular one in Harlem is small it has like 4 seats 2 against each wall so I wouldn't say it's like a place to lounge while you do work. But the overall definitely worth a visit.
