The Zagat Review
“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.

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.

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.

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.
