I’m not the first person to “find” Levain Bakery (though the storefront is down a few stairs), but it’s never too late to write about it.
This small bakery has quite a following and some days the lines are down the block for their famous cookies. Yesterday afternoon’s treat consisted of Chocolate Chip Walnut and Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookies and they did not disappoint! These decadent cookies are best eaten immediately when the chips are still warm and melted, but they hold up well until the next day too, which may be required given the size of them!
The bakery also has a selection of pastries, cakes and a few individual pizzas. Other cookies include Oatmeal Raisin and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip. Levain is the perfect pick-me-up and adds a “beginning of summer” quality to these days that are best spent outdoors.
