Levain Bakery

Cookie shop out of New York opening in Larchmont Village in 2022

Presenting their signature cookies 🍫 🍪 🍪

Levain Bakery's classic chocolate-chip walnut cookie

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
