Levain Bakery is at the top of practically everyone’s list of “best chocolate chip cookies in NYC,” and now they’re expanding to Brooklyn!
The iconic bakery, known for its thick, decadent cookies in only four flavors (well, five now!), announced last month that they would be making their way to Williamsburg—and the new location officially just opened its doors on July 1!
Earlier this year, the team opened a highly-anticipated shop in NoHo. Throughout the COVID-19 shutdown, they have been doing takeout and delivery from all locations. The Brooklyn location will mark their seventh spot, and the first in the borough. Their other locations include: two on the Upper West Side, the Upper East Side, Harlem, NoHo, and Wainscott in the Hamptons.
The cookies are also available for nationwide shipping via their website.
The bakery was started in 1995 by Pam Weekes and Connie McDonald after they made the perfect chocolate chip cookie to fuel their marathon training. 25 years later, it has been hugely popular in NYC and especially for visiting tourists.
