Cookie shop out of New York opening in Larchmont Village in 2022
Presenting their signature cookies 🍫 🍪 🍪
Crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside…
Founded and co-owned by Constance McDonald and Pamela Weekes, Levain Bakery initially opened to serve a variety of fresh-baked artisanal breads. The bakery has since become notable for its 6-ounce chocolate chip walnut cookies.
According to Wikipedia, McDonald and Weekes developed the signature cookie recipe while training for an Ironman Triathlon. They discovered they needed a large number of calories to offset the rigors of training and decided on a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but much bigger. The six-ounce chocolate chip walnut cookie served the purpose and ultimately became a signature item in their bakery.
Larchmont will be Levain Bakery’s first outpost on the West Coast — opening in LLA the same year as Clark Street Bread, Holey Grail Donuts, and Boba The Great.
Address: 227 North Larchmont Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90004
Levain’s exact opening date in LA has yet to be announced.
If you can’t wait for the store to open, you can order boxes of fresh cookies to try from their website: levainbakery.com
