Everyone knows that our cookies are the hottest treats in town, but now Levain is getting even cooler. That’s right friends- Levain Bakery will soon officially be air conditioned! Amazingly enough, we have been operating out of our Upper West Side location sans AC since 1995…that’s fifteen Manhattan summers, for the record!… and with those ovens constantly opening and closing to deliver the freshest and most delicious cookies in the world- well, let’s just say it hasn’t quite been sugar and spice and everything nice with temperatures upwards of 90 degrees. Even though we like to think of ourselves as tough cookies around here…you know what they say, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen!… I can safely tell you that we’re all nothing short of ecstatic to welcome the new addition to the bakery. 

 

Installation’s going to take some time, but with any luck, we should be beating the heat by the time the solstice rolls around. Stop in soon, and you may even catch the staff doing a little happy dance as they pack away the fans and bid farewell to mountains of melting cookie dough. And don’t worry- even though it’ll be a bit cooler in here, those cookies are still going to be warm out of the oven!

So come and chill out with us all summer long…what could be sweeter?

Peace/love

Dear Levain Bakery Staff,
 
I’m attaching a photo of my two nephews, Frank and Aidan, after they finished eating one of your chocolate chip cookies. They said they were the best chocolate chip cookies in the world and I agree!
 
Thank you for caring so much about good food and making our lives a little sweeter!
