Levain Bakery makes the Daily New’s Best of NY for the best chocolate cookies.  To which we can attest, as mentioned in a recent post.

Their signature cookie has both semisweet chocolate chips and chunks of walnuts.

Cookies are baked multiple times daily, and the leftovers are donated to local charities at the end of the day.

What’s your favorite cookie joint in Harlem?

Levain Bakery, which recently opened up a store in Harlem, announced on their Facebook page that this coming Wednesday, March 23rd, they will donate 25 percent of their gross sales from their Upper Westside and Harlem shops to the Red Cross for Japan. They are asking friends/supporters to spread the word.

In support of Levain Bakery and the Japanese people, HCL is encouraging all of its readers to stop by Levain Bakery on Frederick Douglass Blvd and 116th Street on Wednesday for treats and let’s help out those in dire need! See you there!

The wait is finally over. Harlem has a new cookie store! I stopped by Levain Bakery, located on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 116th and 117th Street, yesterday to try out the goods. I purchased four $4 cookies: chocolate chip walnut, dark chocolate chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and dark chocolate peanut butter chip. I have never tasted a Levain Bakery treat before so I went nuts and asked for one of each flavor. Little did I know.

Before I discuss my favorites, let me state: I am going to be eating cookies until the end of March. I had no idea Levain cookies were so…ahh…huge. I have labeled them big a– cookies, big mac cookies or colossal cookies! These cookies are so big and fat, they look like biscuits. Next time I see my friends who reside on the Upper Westside, I am going to ask “why didn’t you tell me how big these cookies were?” Do I sound like a person who is complaining because I am on the verge of inheriting a new sweet tooth addiction? Simple answer. Yes!

Last night, I bit into each of the four cookies I purchased and do they each pack a punch of flavor. If you love chocolate, try the dark chocolate chocolate chip. It was too much for me and I’d rather eat chocolate cake, but for chocolate cookie lovers it will not disappoint. I also did not care for the chocolate peanut butter chip cookie. If you like peanut butter, this cookie is your friend. Where I am going to become a Levain cookie addict is with the chocolate chip/walnut cookie and the raisin oatmeal cookie. I have come to the conclusion I love traditional, simple ingredient cookies. They remind me of the treats I received when I was a kid. However, these cookies have been injected with 10 times the amount of cookie dough.

Levain Bakery definitely delivers the sweet stuff as some of their fans had already conveyed. Next time, I will only buy one cookie or try something else so that I can now manage my new found sweet tooth addiction.

A follower on Twitter informed me today that Levain Bakery is delaying their opening of their Harlem store by one week. I think this photo says it all. I guess the cookie dough is not ready yet!

Not too long after talking about when Levain Bakery was opening up for business in Harlem,  Levain went on record on their Facebook page and Harlem store door officially, there is a sign up, stating when they are opening up their Harlem store. The day is Tuesday, February 22.

So there we have it! We now have confirmation straight from the source on when Levain Bakery is opening up their Harlem store! Get your taste buds ready, Harlemites! Most people I chatted with about Levain, say their treats are very good!

Will this week be the week Levain Bakery officially opens up their Harlem store? We are hearing that’s a possibility. According to a reader, who dropped us a line over the weekend, they went by Levain’s Upper Westside location recently and were told Levain’s Harlem location at 2167 Frederick Douglass Blvd will be opening up on February 1! Sweet, if that is the case.

I walked by the Harlem store over the weekend and the place appears ready, then again one never knows unless you’re in the baking business. Let’s wait and see if this is the week!

If you have walked by the old Tribal Spears Gallery space recently, which was at 2167 Frederick Douglass Blvd., and saw a lot of construction happening, it’s the working crew for Levain Bakery, the Upper Westside and Hampton’s bakery. They are opening up their first Harlem location after the new year – hopefully in the first quarter of 2011.

I spoke with a staffer from their 167 West 74th Street location about the expansion. I asked why are they coming to Harlem? Levain Bakery said “they see Harlem as an emerging community and it’s a community they believe in.”

Very sweet words and it seems consistent with their product. Check out their website to learn more about Levain Bakery. Based on their site, their cookies look yummy. And the bread looks quite good as well. Harlemites will soon have another place to get a sugar fix in Harlem! Sign me up for that gym membership…quick!
