Is there anything better than a freshly baked, chocolate chip cookie?
Whether you’re dipping these crunchy, gooey, delicious treats in milk for a late-night treat, or looking to add a little sweetness to your day, these cookies will have you’re mouth watering. Check out this list of the absolute best cookies in New York City in all their melt-in-your-mouth, chocolate glory!
1. Milk Bar
- The Cookie – Compost Cookie
- Where – Milk Bar, 15 W 56th St
Despite the unfortunate name, these sweet and savory compost cookies are one of the most delicious cookies in the city. This unique creation is made with coffee and oats as well as chocolate, butterscotch, pretzels & chips.
2. Jacques Torres Chocolate
- The Cookie – Jacques’ World Famous Chocolate Chip Cookie
- Where – Jacques Torres Chocolate, Multiple locations
The Chocolate Museum is a great place to spend a few hours, and don’t forget to pick up a delicious cookie on your way out. This “world famous” chocolate chip is oozing with chocolate chunks, yum!
- The Cookie – Nutty Chocolate Chunk Cookie
- Where – Maman, 239 Centre St
Soft and gooey, the Nutty Chocolate chunk is about as sumptuous and flavorful as it sounds. Almonds, walnuts, macadamias, and a browned exterior all come together to make this an amazing bite.
- The Cookie – Chocolate Chip Walnut
- Where – Levain Bakery, Multiple locations
These cookies are big enough to use as a plate for normal, less opulent cookie. The Chocolate Chip Walnut at Levain Bakery is definitely one for your cookie bucket list, but beware, this is a city favorite so there will be a line.
- The Cookie – Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot
- Where – Dominique Ansel, 189 Spring St
One of the most unique takes on the humble cookie, Dominique Ansel Bakery’s cookie shot re-imagines cookies and milk in a brand new way. Tough enough not to fall apart when you take your shot, this treat is a must-try for true cookie-holics. And no, it’s not “overdone” to mention Dominique Ansel on this list, it’s famous for a reason.
6. Chip NYC
- The Cookie – Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Where – Chip NYC, multiple locations
Chip made its way onto the cookie scene in Astoria, Queens in 2017. Since their focus is on cookies, it’s no wonder that they’re one of the best the city has to offer. They’ve since expanded to other locations across the Big Apple. We recommend the chocolate peanut butter if you’re looking for something particularly decadent, but we honestly haven’t had a cookie there we didn’t like so you’re in safe hands with any choice you make!
- The Cookie – Signature Chocolate Chip cookie
- Where – Culture Espresso, multiple locations
Culture Espresso bakes batches on batches of fresh cookies every day. The signature chocolate chip melts in your mouth!
- The Cookie – Triple Chocolate
- Where – Multiple locations
Insomnia Cookies started cruising the streets of New York City in their food trucks back in 2008, now nearly a decade later they have over 100 shops. Order through their personal app and surprise someone anywhere in the US with a box of heavenly cookies (vegan/gluten free options included).
- The Cookie – Chocolate Chip Chunk
- Where – 163 Chrystie St
We all know that the perfect cookie is always crispy on the outside, but soft and gooey on the inside. However, if you’ve ever attempted to bake a batch yourself, you know its not as easy as you would think. The idea for Gooey On The Inside came about when the owner (and self-proclaimed emotional eater) perfected the recipe in her Chelsea apartment. Several years later and this cookie shop continues to experiment and put its own personal twist on classic favorites we all love. They ship nationwide too.
10. Besfren NYC
- The Cookie – Triple Chocolate Chip
- Where – 315 5th Ave
BESFREN, inspired by the Korean fairytale “Moon Rabbit” is a company founded in 2012 that’s made up of two parts, their range of Korean Beauty products and their cozy cafe. Their artistically hand-crafted pastries are a mix of Korean traditional pastries and the latest in modern desserts.
- The Cookie – Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie
- Where – 31 Greenpoint Ave
Another award winning bakery! This Brooklyn gem is the perfect spot for those who always need a little something salty after eating something sweet. Nationwide shipping available.
